Castagnola Leads Elon Phoenix Invitational
GW tied for fourth as a team; Castagnola holds two-shot lead at -7
BURLINGTON, N.C. -- Sophomore Adrian Castagnola shot an opening-round 65 and followed with a second-round 70 to get to 7-under par and hold a two-shot lead after day one of the Elon Phoenix Invitational at Alamance Country Club.
The Colonials are tied for fourth as a team, having led after shooting a 7-under 277 in round one before slipping back with a 7-over 291 in the afternoon. Elon leads at -10 followed by Radford and High Point at -1, and Appalachian State and the Colonials at even-par.
Castagnola led the charge early on, catching fire on his seventh hole of the day. After making six consecutive pars, the sophomore eagled a par 5 and made four additional birdies during his round without dropping a stroke to card 65. In the afternoon, Castagnola mixed three birdies with two bogeys to shoot 70 and take a two-shot lead over a trio of competitors heading into Tuesday's final round.
Also in contention is junior Logan Lowe, who steadily shot 70 in each round to sit in a tie for seventh at 2-under. GW's first tee time in the final round on Tuesday is set for 8:48 a.m. and can be followed here.
