Immediate Release: April 3, 2005
WESTOVER, Md. - Sophomore Jeff Wolniewicz (West Seneca, N.Y.) earned runnerup honors after carding rounds of 74-72 but Binghamton was back in the pack at the Towson Drew Upton Memorial Classic, placing 13th out of 19 teams in the rain-shortened event.
The scheduled 54-hole tournament was cut to 36 holes at the drenched par-72 Great Hope Golf Course, and the Bearcats produced their worst two rounds of the year, shooting 316 and 310 to finish 31 shots behind tournament winner Loyola (595). Binghamton did finish ahead of region rival Yale, who shot 628 to place 14th.
Wolniewicz, who leads the team with a scoring average of 73.4, finished two strokes behind medalist T.J. Shuart of Loyola. Wolniewicz recorded six birdies in the two rounds - including back-to-back birdies on Nos. 17 and 18 to end Sunday's even-par final round.
The Bearcats played without talented freshman Zach Vinal (Syracuse, N.Y.) - the team's low man at the spring-opening River City Classic in New Orleans. He is recovering from surgery.
Aside from Wolniewicz, junior Casey Wheet (Elmira, N.Y.) had the most success at Great Hope. Playing as an individual, Wheet held a share of the lead after an opening-round 1-under 71, and wound up tied for seventh (71-78=149).
Binghamton next plays in the Lafayette Invitational on April 8-9.
