Men’s Golf Puts an Exclamation Mark on Fall

After a slow start to their fall season, the men’s golf team has come roaring back in record breaking fashion with their performance at the Rutgers-Camden Invitational.  Playing shorthanded for much of the season has been a struggle, but the afternoon of October 18 at Pennsauken Country Club served as both an exclamation point on this season and a true momentum-builder for the spring season.  Standout performances included sophomore Ryan Torresin, who tied his own school record by shooting a 69 and one under par, and freshman Andrew Barbin who finished with a season low score of 72, two under par.  As a team, the Eagles finished with a combined score of 318, a school record and a mere three strokes behind tournament winner Rutgers-Camden for second place in the tournament.  As the team turns their attention to the spring, they will look for Torresin and Barbin to continue to emerge as elite players in the conference and for senior captain Logan Maurer to provide veteran leadership for the underclassmen.  Barbin summed up the team’s feelings, “As Spring slowly approaches, we can await what should be an exciting season with a full roster, but most importantly, a newfound reputation as a conference powerhouse.”
