This weekend, the Penn men’s golf team got a taste of what they’ll lose when the seniors graduate in May and what talent they’ve gained in the freshman class.
The Quakers traveled to Princeton, N.J. to participate in the Princeton Invitational, along with 14 other schools.
The Red and Blue tied for third place for the second year in a row, shooting 878 overall, four strokes more than first-place finisher Yale and second-place Harvard. Harvard and Yale were tied after three rounds, resulting in a play-off between the two powerhouses.
In the final round, Penn managed to shave seven strokes off of their second round total of 295. Three out of the five Quakers finished in the top-20 overall.
Senior Chance Pipitone showed his skills off on the links, coming in third place out of 78 competitors. On the par 71 course, he hit a 72-70-72 in three rounds. Freshman Colin St. Maxens wasn’t too far behind, hitting 218 overall, four strokes more than Pipitone, to tie for 8th with three other golfers.
Next weekend, Penn travels to Maryland with hopes of improving on last year’s third place finish at the Caves Valley Spring Intercollegiate
