NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The University of Pennsylvania men's golf team placed sixth out of 14 teams at the Macdonald Cup, a tournament hosted by Yale this weekend on The Course at Yale.
The Quakers shot 295 in Saturday's first round, then followed up with a 291 on Sunday to finish at 586 in a tournament that was shortened from 54 holes to 36 due to inclement weather on Saturday. Yale won the team title by a single stroke, shooting a two-round 569 to defeat second-place Harvard (570) and third-place Kennesaw State (575). Among the other Ivy teams in the field, Princeton was fourth (581); Dartmouth was fifth (585); and Brown was 14th (611).
Senior Austin Powell once again led Penn for the weekend, as he has done all fall. After a first-round 72, he went under par on Sunday (69) to finish at 141 which tied him for second place with eight other golfers behind Princeton's Eric Mitchell (70-68--138). A total of 71 golfers competed in the event.
Senior Ben Cooley also shot a 69 on Sunday, shaving seven strokes from his Saturday round to finish at 145 which tied him for 16th. Sophomore Dane Walton (74-75--149) tied for 31st, while freshman Amay Poria (73-78--151) tied for 43rd and senior Tomas Agrest (77-78--155) tied for 56th.
Penn will close out the fall portion of its season next weekend with the Temple Invitational in nearby Huntingdon Valley, Pa.
