TELFORD, PA - GW's Brian Carroll (Crystal Lake, IL/Crystal Lake South) became the second Colonial to win a tournament this month when he fired a 70-77-147 to capture the Don Mershon Classic Monday at the par-72, 6,859-yard Indian Valley Country Club in Telford, PA. Freshman Andrew Gallo (Thornhill, Ontario/Crescent) won the Temple Owl Invitational Oct. 6. Carroll's performance helped lead GW to the team title with a 298-308-606, nine strokes ahead of host Lehigh. Colgate was third with a 616. It marked the first GW team victory since the 1999 St. Bonaventure Invitational.
