Cichan Takes Third at George Mason Spring Spectacular
Lowe finishes T-11th; Colonials move up three spots in the team rankings on final day
HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. -- GW redshirt junior Christian Cichan achieved the best finish of his career by placing third at the George Mason Mission Inn Spring Spectacular at El Campeon Golf Course, which concluded on Sunday.
Cichan, who finished the tournament with a 1-over par 217 (71-70-76), surpassed his previous best result of T-7th, achieved at the 2016 Atlantic 10 Championship last May. His third-place finish also comes on the heels of a T-8th finish last week at the Bash at the Beach Invitational. Cichan ended the tournament two shots off the pace of Ohio's Peyton White, the only player in the field in red at 1-under.
"It was great to be there at the end with a chance to win today," said Cichan. "My short game was really solid all week and kept me in contention. Although I'm disappointed I didn't win, I did a great job of staying calm and relaxed when I faced some adversity today. I'm pleased where my game is mid-season and feel that I'm gaining some valuable experience that will help me at the conference tournament."
Sophomore Logan Lowe, who recorded his first career win at the Bash at the Beach, kept a hot hand with a T-11th finish, narrowly missing out on a fourth top-10 finish in seven tournaments this season, with a 6-over par 222 (70-76-76).
As a team GW played its best golf in the final round, carding a 303 which was the fifth-best score in the 16-team field as the Colonials moved from 12th place to ninth. Junior Vince Palazzolo had the best round of the day for GW with a 1-over 73 while Michael Heda rounded out GW's scoring contingent with a 78.
"We were able to move up the leaderboard, unfortunately just one shot out of seventh," said head coach Chuck Scheinost. "There were definitely some learning moments for us. We have to figure out how to play a tougher golf course while sticking to our game plan and getting comfortable playing golf on a tighter, tougher course with some wind because we'll face it again later this season."
The Colonials are set to return to action April 3-4 at the East Carolina Intercollegiate in Greeneville, NC.
