April 1, 2013Tweet
Grasonville, MD- Binghamton moved up three spots on Monday during the second round of the Whiting-Turner Towson Invite in Grasonville, Maryland. Paced by senior David Cellura, the Bearcats shot a team score of 308 at the Prospect Bay CC. Cellura carded a 74 (+2) in round two and currently sits in 13th place out of 123 individuals.
BU entered Monday tied with hosts Towson in eighth place, but made a climb up the leaderboard after a combined score of +20. Through two rounds, the Bearcats have a score of 617, just one shot ahead of Long Island U-Brklyn. William & Mary continues to hold the team lead in convincing fashion. They currently are 20 strokes ahead of the next best school (Indiana U of Pa.).
After a 76 Sunday, Cellura bettered his individual standing with a round of just two-over. For the second straight day, the senior played the front nine at even par. He bogied the par 3 third hole, but bounced back just five holes later with a birdie on the short 310 yard par 4 eighth. After five straight pars, Cellura had a bit of a hiccup with a double bogey at 14. However, he bounced back by playing the remaining four holes at even par. He stands alone in 13th place and is just three strokes shy of fourth place.
Both Jesse Perkins and Jack Sedgewick shot yet another 76 on Monday. Perkins had an up-and-down day at Prospect Bay, collecting 10 pars, six bogeys and two birdies. Despite making just one birdie, Sedgewick was able to grind out a four-over round with a team-best 12 pars. A top-20 finish for Perkins would be his first as a collegiate performer and would be the second time Sedgewick has cracked the top-20.
Binghamton gets up bright and early for the final round, which begins at 8:50 am tomorrow morning. The Bearcats are 13 and 14 shots off fourth and third place respectively.
