Men's Golf Edged Out of Ivy Title

Ivy League Championships Final Results

NORTHFIELD, N.J. - The Penn men's golf team was edged out of the Ivy League title by a stroke Sunday, as Columbia snatched the trophy from the Quakers and earned its second straight crown.

The Lions shot a final-round 284 and finished the tournament at 10-over par 291-283-284--858; the Quakers, meanwhile, carded 288 on Sunday and finished at 11-over par 285-286-288--859. The two teams were ahead of Dartmouth (293-280-291--864) and Yale (292-291-283--866).

Individually, Brett Rendina had a monster final round and finished as Penn's low scorer. He carded a 67 Sunday, by far his low round at Penn and the lowest round shot among the 40 golfers on the Atlantic City Country Club course. As a result, he finished the weekend 72-73-67--212 and tied for third individually.

Scotty Williams also earned a top-five finish, tying for fifth with a final-round 73 that left him at 213 for the weekend. Both Rendina and Williams earned first-team All-Ivy following the tournament.

Dillon Hakes and Bryant Williams were among seven players who tied for 14th overall. Hakes went 70-75-73--218 on the weekend, while Williams shot 72-71-75--218. Kevin Huntington (74-73-75--222) rounded out Penn's contingent for the weekend.

Dartmouth's Pete Williamson and Princeton's Eric Salazar tied for the individual title, shooting 211 over the three rounds which was 1-under par. Williamson then defeated Salazar in a three-hole playoff to earn medalist honors.
