Men's Golf Ties For Seventh at Cornell

ITHACA, N.Y. - The Penn men's golf team tied for seventh place out of 15 teams at the Cornell Invitational, which was shortened to just one round Saturday due to inclement weather throughout the weekend.

Penn shot 298 and finished tied with Bucknell for seventh. Delaware won the event, beating Siena by a stroke. Among other Ivy schools, Columbia was third (290), Dartmouth was fourth (296), Cornell tied for fifth (297), and Princeton tied for ninth (299).

"It was disappointing that we could only get in 18 of the scheduled 54 holes this weekend," said head coach Scott Allen. "There were a lot of teams bunched up, and today probably would have given us a little more separation. But overall, it was a solid, competitive showing for us in pretty difficult conditions."

Individually, Penn was led by senior Michael Blodgett, who tied for 10th with an even-par 72. Sophomore Kevin Huntington tied for 13th overall, shooting 1-over-par 73, while freshman Ben Cohen tied for 20th with a 74. Brett Rendina (79) and sophomore Ross Merrill (81) rounded out the Quakers' quintet.

Penn is back in action Oct. 11-12, competing in the Big Five Championships which will take place at the Quakers' home course, Philadelphia Cricket Club in Flourtown, Pa.
