Golf Ties for Eighth at Rain-Shortened William & Mary Invitational
March 21, 2006
WILLIAMSBURG, VA -- The second and final round of the William and Mary Invitational golf tournament was cancelled due to inclement weather leaving GW stranded in a two-way tie for eighth place among 20 teams in the William & Mary Invitational, Monday at the par-71, 6,831-yard Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, VA. Liberty University was awarded the team trophy after posting the best first-round score (292, +8), and Maryland was the runner-up just one stroke off the pace.
Three individuals tied for first-place in the final standings, with St. Bonaventure's Josh Anderson receiving the individual title by criteria over Will Shriver of Loyola (MD) and Brent Paladino of William and Mary.
GW junior Raman Luthra (East Amherst, NY/Nichols) shot a one-over-par 72 to tie for ninth place out of 115 golfers. Luthra holed one of four eagles Monday. Seniors Brian Carroll (Crystal Lake, IL/Crystal Lake South) and Andrew Gallo (Thornhill, Ontario/Crescent) each fired a 76 to tie for 46th on Kingsmill's River Course.
The Colonials had teed off early Tuesday morning and were well into a strong round and making their way up the team standings when tournament officials decided to cancel Tuesday's round.
GW next hosts the Eighth Annual GW Invitational, Saturday-Sunday, Mar. 25-26, at Bear Trap Dunes Golf Club in Bethany Beach, DE.
