Men’s golf places sixth

The St. John’s men’s golf team traveled to Orlando, Fla., for the Big East-MAC Challenge and placed sixth in the two-day tournament featuring six Big East rivals and four Mid-American Conference teams last weekend. Sophomore Keegan Bradley placed second individually with 210 strokes.

“We were off for two weeks but [it was] a real fine showing,” St. John’s coach Frank Darby said. “We kind of struggled in the first round but we played well the last 45 holes or so. I know you have to count them all but I was proud.”

Top honors went to Marquette (852), which carded a whole 11 points less than the second place South Florida (863). Rounding out the top three was Ohio University (866). Ohio also claimed top honors individually with Mark Cimarolli carding a 207.

“There’s a lot of good teams,” Darby said. “We have a strong conference √¢?” five teams that will be a favorite to win.”

Bradley earned his fourth top-five finish of the fall, also marking the fourth time he has been the top finisher for St. John’s. Along with Bradley, George Zolotas (221) finished tied for 20th individually, Brian McArdle (222) tied for 24th with just one more stroke then Zolotas.

The Big East-MAC challenge marked the end of the fall season for the golfers. Overall, St. John’s took first place twice at the McLaughlin and the Tillinghast, second at Rutgers Invitational, and fifth at the Mission Inn Classic.

“I thought we had a great season,” Darby said. “We’ve got a lot of youth. We’ve established ourselves as one of the top teams.”
