The GW golf team got off to a rough start last weekend finishing 21st out of 27 colleges competing at the Navy Fall Invitational in Annapolis, Md.
Thomas Blankvoort’s five-over-par 147 was the low score for the Colonial and placed him in a tie for 20th overall out of 142 competitors.
The Colonials shot a combined 313-299-612, 38 strokes off the lead. Vanderbilt University won the two-day event with a score of 574.
The University of Pennsylvania finished second in the tournament, 11 strokes off Vanderbilt’s pace. The United State Military Academy, George Mason and Lehigh University finished in a three-way tie for third place. Transfer Michael Ball, making his first appearance as a Colonial, finished in a tie for 34th place firing a seven-over-par 149 (78-71).
Other Colonials scores included Stuart Healey, who finished tied for 76th (76-78-154), Brad Friedlander, who finished tied for 127th (82-80-162), and Reid Rosenthal who finished tied for 139th place (84-83-167).
The Colonials will look to rebound from the disappointing finish this weekend at the James Madison Invitational. The two round tournament on Sept 16-17 will be played at Lakeview Country Club in Harrisonburg, Va.
