Sept. 28, 2015


The Loyola University Maryland golf team battled through a foggy, rain-shortened first day of the Primland Collegiate Invitational Monday and will resume play at the Primland Resort on Tuesday in a tie for sixth place.

Only two of the nine teams completed all 36 holes today, with the remaining teams set to conclude Round 2 tomorrow at 9:15 a.m. Due to weather conditions, the tournament has been shortened to a 45-hole event with a 9-hole third round also scheduled for Tuesday.

Through the first round, junior Ethan Wall shot a 2-under 70 and was just two strokes out of second place. Through 15 holes of the second round, Wall is 1-under par.

Junior Will Wears also shot an impressive first round, turning in his first collegiate round at under par, a 1-under 71.

Sophomore Jeremy Wall carded a 3-over 75 on his first trip through the course, while freshman Morgan Egloff shot an 81 and junior Connor Flach turned in an 84.

Wears and Jeremy Wall are the lone Greyhounds to have completed all 36 holes today, with Wears shooting an aggregate score of 7-over 151 through the two rounds and Jeremy Wall carding a 13-over 157. Egloff, Flach and Ethan Wall still have three holes to play.

North Carolina has two players yet to finish, but is currently in the lead at 16-under. Auburn completed the round and is tied for second with tournament host Wake Forest at 13-under.

The Greyhounds are currently tied for sixth with Yale at 14-over.
