ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Penn men's golf team could not ask for more momentum heading into the Ivy League Championships, which begin on Friday. The Quakers won the 20-team Navy Spring Invitational on Sunday, producing the low team score in brutal conditions on the par-71 US Naval Academy Golf Club course.
In addition, sophomore Max Marsico and senior Scotty Williams shared Sunday's low round among the 109 individuals in the field, as both shot 70. That allowed them to finish first and third, respectively, in the field. For Marsico, it marked his second individual title this spring as he finished the tournament at 1-over-par 143 to place one stroke ahead of Martin Liu from George Washington. Williams was right behind Liu, at 145.
Colin St. Maxens tied for fifth in the field, shooting a 78 Sunday to finish at 149 for the tournament. The other players in the lineup were freshman Austin Powell (81 on Sunday), who tied for 45th overall with a two-round 156, and Geoff Locher (87), who tied for 90th with a two-round 164.
Ben Cooley was in the field as an individual and tied for ninth in the field with a strong 76 on Sunday to finish at 150 overall. Tomas Agrest shot an 80 on Sunday and finished tied for 96th in the field with a 165. P.J. Fielding, who had shot Penn's low score on Saturday playing as an individual, withdrew before Sunday's round due to a family emergency. He is expected to be in the lineup when the Quakers play in the Ivy League Championships this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Galloway (N.J.) National.
