Final Results (PDF)

BETHANY BEACH, Del. - The Penn men's golf team moved up a few spots from Friday to Saturday, shooting a team 293 in the final round to tie for fifth among 16 teams at the George Washington Invitational. The event concluded Saturday at the par-72 Bear Trap Dunes Golf Club.

Missouri had the top three individual finishers -- led by Chris Johnson's three-round 199 -- and four of the top five; not surprisingly, the Tigers easily won the team title. Mizzou carded 278-272-270--820 to defeat second-place Yale by 32 strokes. Towson (877) was third, followed by host GW (885), and then Penn tied with George Washington's second squad at 890. Delaware was seventh with a three-round 891.

Sophomore Scotty Williams had Penn's best round Saturday, carding 69 to finish with a three-round 216 which put him in a tie for 11th among 96 golfers in the tournament. Older brother Bryant Williams tied for 24th overall, shooting a 76 on Saturday to total 221 for the tournament. Chance Pipitone (76-75-75--226) tied for 34th, Ross Merrill -- who had Penn's second-best round on Saturday -- tied for 44th (76-81-73--230), and Kevin Huntington (75-79-79--232) tied for 53rd.

Dillon Hakes (72-80-75--227/t-40th) and Sam Williams (79-76-75--230) competed as individuals for the Quakers.

Penn returns to action Monday, April 5 when the Quakers host the Rehoboth Beach (Del.) Spring Invitational, a 36-hole event.
