ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Georgetown University men's golf team fired a one-under par 283 on the final day at the Navy Fall Classic to finish one-under, seven strokes behind tournament champion Princeton. The Hoyas had four players finish in the top-25 in the two-round, 36-hole tournament at the Naval Academy Golf Course.
"We're excited," Head Coach Tommy Hunter said. "Princeton played terrific golf and they were the better team, but for us to finish one-under par after 36 holes is something we haven't done in a very long time, so I'm excited for our guys."
Sophomore Jack Musgrave (Chesterton, Ind./Andrean) and freshman Harrison Rhoades (Raleigh, N.C./Needham Broughton) tied for fifth overall, finishing three-under par for tournament. Rhoades shot a team-best two-under par 69 during the final day, while Musgrave shot an even-par 71 in the second round.
"It's good to see Harrison Rhoades start his intercollegiate career with two rounds under par and Jack Musgrave played well enough to play in the final group," Hunter said."
Sophomore Cole Berman (Philadelphia, Pa./The Haverford School) finished at even par for the tournament after carding a one-under par 71 on Monday afternoon to tie for 11th place. Sophomore Sam Madsen (Madison, Wis./Edgewood[Cardinal Gibbons]) tied for 22nd overall, finishing with a five-over par 147 through 36 holes.
Freshman Kevin Jackson (Atlanta, Ga./Marist School) tied for 41st place overall after turning in a 13-over par 155 for the tournament.
The Hoyas will have the weekend off from competition, before traveling to The North Shore Country Club in Glenview, Ill. for The Windon Memorial Invitational. Play will begin on Sunday, September 27 and finish on Monday, September 28.
