Alonso, Golfers Turn In Best Third Round Scores At Doc Gimmler
FARMINGDALE, N.Y. -
All four scoring Greyhounds shot par-or-better through today’s final round of the Doc Gimmler at Bethpage Red Course, helping the Loyola University Maryland golf team turn in the best single-round score of the tournament Sunday. It wouldn’t be enough to help the Greyhounds catch Florida State, though, as Loyola finished runner-up in its season opener.
In addition, junior Erick Alonso tied the round’s low score today, shooting a personal-best 5-under 65 to fall one stroke shy of tying Matt Oshrine’s 54-hole school record of 64 set at the Doc Gimmler in 2014.
Freshman Brandon Berry led the Greyhounds through the tournament, finishing tied for third in his collegiate debut. Berry turned in his second under-par round of the tournament, a 2-under 68, to finish at 4-under 206. Yale’s Eoin Leonard won the individual title with an 11-under 199, while Florida State’s John Pak was second at 9-under 201.
Alonso joined Berry in the top-10, finishing tied for sixth with a three-round score of 2-under 208.
Seniors Ethan Wall and Brendan Peel rounded out the scoring Greyhounds, as the duo carded even 70s through today’s round. Wall checked in 12th with a 1-over 211 through the tournament, while Peel finished tied for 15th at 3-over 213.
Senior Jeremy Wall shot a 1-over 71 today and finished tied for 22nd at 5-over 215.
Freshman Evan Brown, playing as an individual, finished at 13-over 223 after turning in a 73 today.
Loyola bettered all 14 teams by at least a three-strokes today, turning in a 7-under 273. The Greyhounds were unable to catch the Seminoles though, as Florida State won the team title with a 13-under 827 and Loyola finished second at 3-under 837. With the strong final round, the Greyhounds jumped Connecticut on the team board and held a nine-stroke lead over the Huskies, who finished third at 6-over 846. Yale finished fourth with a 9-over 849 and Harvard was fifth of the 14 teams at 11-over 851.
The Greyhounds will return to action on Sunday, Sept. 24, when they travel to Sugar Grove, Illinois for the Northern Intercollegiate.
