PRINCETON, N.J. - The Penn men's golf team finished third out of 14 teams at the Princeton Invitational, which concluded with 18 holes Sunday at the par-71 Springdale Golf Club.

The Quakers shot 305-305--610 to finish behind only Rutgers (294-302--596) and Yale (305-300--605). Penn was second among the six Ivy League teams, defeating fourth-place Columbia (298-315--613), seventh-place Princeton (301-317--618), eighth-place Harvard (304-315--619),and 14th-place Cornell (310-339--649).

The Quakers were led on the weekend by Scotty Williams, who carded 76-75--151 to tie for 11th overall. Senior Brett Rendina (74-79--183) tied for 17th. However, the big news was Bryant Williams, who scored 157 overall but rebounded from an 84 Saturday to card the team's low round Sunday, a 73. Dillon Hakes (78-78--156) and Kevin Huntington (77-80--157) rounded out Penn's lineup at the event.

James Arbes of Rutgers took medalist honors, carding 73-72--145 to defeat Yale's Taylor Hakes -- Dillon's older brother -- by a stroke. Harvard's Greg Shuman, the first-day leader, placed third overall with 70-77--147.

"I'm very proud of the guys," said head coach Scott Allen. "Brett led the way for us on Saturday, and then Bryant and Scotty really stepped up today. The six Ivy League teams here according to the computer rankings andso we continue to show that, with or without Mike Blodgett, we are a threat to win the Ivy Championships in a few weeks."

The Quakers return to action next weekend at the Caves Valley Intercollegiate, the team's last test before the Ivy League Championships which will take place April 24-26 in Atlantic City, N.J.
