ITHACA, N.Y. - The University of Pennsylvania men's golf team finished in a tie for second place out of 15 teams at its first event of the 2014-15 fall season, the Cornell Invitational.
The Quakers were the only team to go below 300 twice on the weekend, following up Saturday's first-round 312 with a 295 -- the lowest team score in either Saturday round -- and then a 298 on Sunday to finish at 905 overall. That was one shot behind team champion Dartmouth (904) and tied with Delaware. Colgate was fourth (909); the host Big Red finished sixth (912).
Austin Powell was Penn's low scorer on the weekend; the senior shot 75-72-77--224 and tied for fifth in the field of 78 golfers. His classmate, Ben Cooley, shot the Quakers' low round on Sunday (73) and ended up tied for 10th overall at 225. Freshman Amay Poria and sophomore Dane Walton both scored on Sunday with final-round 74s and finished tied for 17th and 46th, respectively, at 228 and 235. Freshman Sam Rosenberg scored for Penn in Saturday's first round (79) and ended the tournament tied for 62nd overall at 241.
Longwood's Blake Carter was the individual champion; he shot 73-70-75--218 to defeat Delaware's Kieran Purcell by a stroke.
Penn returns to action next weekend at Dartmouth's Quechee (Vt.) Club Invitational.
