Golf Turns In Solid Season-Opening Performance at UPG Invitational

GREENSBURG, PA — Frostburg State opened its second era of golf with a solid performance at the Pitt-Greensburg Invitational Tuesday afternoon.

The Bobcats, who last fielded a golf team in 1975, shot 317 to tie Lake Erie for fourth in the seven-team event.

Penn State Behrend claimed the title with a 294, followed by defending Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference champion Penn State Altoona with a 312. The Pitt-Greensburg Gold team was third with a 314.

La Roche shot 322 to finish sixth, while Pitt-Greensburg Blue was seventh at 362.

Sophomore Ian Umphrey led the Bobcats with a 75, followed by freshman Sean Buenger with a 78.

Sophomore Joe Eaton shot 80, freshman Nathan Jackson shot 84 and senior Wayne Hardesty shot 86.

Each team’s lowest four scores counted.

"I’m very pleased that we finished just five shots out of second place," said Bobcat first-year head coach Rick Flowers. "I’m happy with our effort today and feel we’re going in the right direction."

Frostburg State returns to action Saturday in the Lake Erie Invitational in Painesville, Ohio.
