Hodgon, Quagliero Lead Men's Golf at DeSales

WHITE HAVEN, Pa. – Ryan Hodgdon and Kyle Quagliero tied for low-man honors as the Ursinus College men's golf team continued its tune-up for the Centennial Conference championship with a seventh-place showing at the DeSales Invitational.

The Bears' duo each carded a 7-over 79 at Mountain Laurel Golf Club for the Bears, who finished on 330 strokes for the second straight tournament.

Hodgon and Quagliero landed in an eight-way tie for 10th place overall in a field of more than 50 golfers. Hodgon, a junior, made birdie on the par-4 9th hole among nine pars, including a stretch of five in a row from holes 14-18.

Quagliero, a freshman, matched Hodgdon with a 39 on the front and a 40 on the back. He scored par on six of the first seven holes and added a birdie on the par-4 14th hole.

Junior Jack Bagnell carded a season-low 85 on a consistent afternoon. He made par on seven of eight holes bridging the turn and finished with nine pars. Junior Daniel Schlitt, fresh off a career-low 81 at the Ursinus Invitational on Tuesday, finished with five pars en route to an 87.

Freshman John Murray scored 97, notching par on the 12th hole, a par-3.

The Bears play their final tournament before the conference championship this weekend as they take on the two-day Rosemont Invitational at Downingtown Country Club.
