Final Results (PDF)

CHARLESTOWN, R.I. - The Penn men's golf team completed the fall portion of its 2011-12 schedule with a 10th-place finish at The Classic at Shelter Harbor, hosted this past weekend by the University of Rhode Island.

The Quakers carded 312-316--628 as a team, finishing five strokes behind ninth-place Boston College and two strokes ahead of the host Rams. Dartmouth won the team championship, shooting 594 over the two rounds to defeat the University of Connecticut by six strokes. Among the other Ivies in the 15-team field, Columbia was third (603), Princeton was fourth (606), Yale was seventh (614), Brown was 13th (638), and Cornell was 14th (646).

Max Marsico was Penn's low scorer this weekend, carding 74-75--149 to finish at 7-over par and tie for 10th overall in the field of 82 golfers who finished. Junior Colin St. Maxens tied for 37th (82-76--158), while P.J. Fielding tied for 44th (80-79--159) and freshman Ben Cooley tied for 72nd (80-79--167).

The Quakers were hampered by the absence of senior stalwart Scotty Williams, and that absence was compounded when freshman Austin Powell was forced to withdraw Sunday after shooting Penn's second-best round on Saturday (77). Yet another freshman, Tomas Agrest, played the event as an individual and shot 74-88--162 to tie for 58th.

Bernie D'Amato ended up with medalist honors; he was tied with Dartmouth's Peter Williamson after 36 holes, both at 1-over-par 143, then defeated the Big Green senior in a playoff.
