Owls Find the Sailing Rough at Mariner Invite

Augusta, MAINE – Reynold Brown shot an 8-over par 78 at the Maine Maritime Academy Mariner Invitational, Friday, to lead the UMPI golf squad in their last weekend of play.  Accustomed to taking one of the top two spots in most of their tournaments this season, the Blue & Gold had an unusually difficult day on the course at the Augusta Country Club, finishing in a tie for 5th place with the University of New England.

  Brown finished among a group of seven golfers who tied for 9th place individually.  Junior DJ Conley shot 82 and Jordan Beaulier ranked third for the Owl contingent on the day with an 84.  Senior Mike Balmer registered an 89 and Hazen Daupine, finished two shots behind at 91.

Veteran head coach Dan Hotham will next load the Owl crew and head to Waterville to participate in the Colby College Classic this weekend to finish the season for the Blue & Gold.
