Golf Finishes 8th at Atlantic 10 Championship

May 2, 2004


MIDDLETOWN, RI - The George Washington University golf team shot a three-round 929 (309-321-299) to place eighth in the 11-team Atlantic 10 Championship Friday-Sunday at the par-72, 7,457-yard Newport National Golf Club in Middletown, RI. GW sophomore Brian Carroll (Crystal Lake, IL/Crystal Lake South) was the low Colonial with a 225 (75-78-72), good for 11th place out of 55 individuals.

Rhode Island senior David Spitz (Norwell, MA) sank a four-foot putt on 18 that gave the University of Rhode Island the 2004 Atlantic 10 Championship. Spitz edged Xavier's Andy Pope by one-stroke for the round to give the Rams the team championship, but the two players went to a playoff to decide the individual championship, and Pope earned that honor after finishing as the runner-up in 2003.

GW freshman Jack Tyler (Novi, MI/Nov) tied for 31st with a 234 while teammates Dan Mirabella (Ann Arbor, MI/Saline) shot a 235 to finish tied for 33rd place freshman Raman Luthra (East Amherst, NY/Nichols) tied for 43rd with a 239. Colonials sophomore Andrew Gallo (Thornhill, ONT/Crescent) checked in at 50th after carding a 244 for the tournament.
