CAMBRIDGE, Md. - The Penn men's golf team finished seventh out of 15 teams at the Maryland Intercollegiate, a 54-hole event that took place Saturday and Sunday at River Marsh Golf Club.

The Quakers were in third place as a team after Saturday's first round, with a 282, but fell off the pace and shot 298 Saturday afternoon and 291 Sunday to finish at 871 on the par-71 course. Penn State won the team title with 280-281-283--844, defeating UNC-Wilmington by eight shots.

Freshman Max Marsico continued his hot play for the Quakers; he shot 68-70-70--208, finishing at 5-under par and losing the individual title by just one stroke to Penn State's Michael Miller (70-68-69--207).

Senior Kevin Huntington (71-76-76--223) and junior Dillon Hakes (74-76-73--223) tied for 35th in the field, while sophomore Colin St. Maxens (72-80-72--224) tied for 41st. Freshman Marco Fortades (71-76-84--231) tied for 65th. Overall, the field featured 79 golfers.

"I was very proud of our guys this weekend," said head coach Scott Allen. "Our first-round 282 was the best team score in the time that I've been here. We finished last at this event a year ago, so to finish in the top half of a very strong field was a good showing for us and big step up from last weekend."

Penn will host the Rehoboth Beach (Del.) Fall Classic next Monday, Sept. 27.
