LEMONT, Ill. - Four of Loyola's five golfers improved on their first round scores in Sunday afternoon's second round, as the Greyhounds finished two round of competition at the John Dallio Invitational, hosted by DePaul University.
"We did a very poor job early of handling our emotions on a very difficult course," Greyhounds Head Coach Tom Beidleman said. "Our scores reflected that."
Loyola is in 16th place after two of three rounds with a total of 60-over par at Ruffled Feathers Golf Club.
Sophomore Jay Mulieri carded the team's best round of the day, shooting a 2-over par 74 in the second round. Mulieri tempered six bogeys with four birdies in the round. The 2009 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Rookie of the Year did not fare as well in the first round, finishing at 11-over.
Playing in his first collegiate event, freshman Jon Ross started with a solid first round. He began his Greyhounds career with back-to-back birdies, before a pair of bogeys brought him back to even-par after 10 holes.
Ross, however, rebounded with a birdie on his 12th hole before bogeying his 15th to drop back again to even. His round ended on a down note after finding the water on his final hole to finish his first collegiate round at 4-over. The round was Loyola's best in the first round and second best on the day.
No teams finished under par, but the host Blue Demons lead at 5-over after two rounds.
The Invitational concludes on Monday with the final round. Live results can be viewed on .
