Though inclement weather may have made for a difficult round of golf, the Penn men’s team managed to take the Rehoboth Beach Fall Invitational by storm on Monday.

In the only tournament they will host this fall, the Quakers finished second, carding 14 strokes higher than first-place Maryland.

“It was a solid result for our guys,” coach Scott Allen told Penn Athletics. “We beat all of the teams that I think we should be beating. I was pleased with the balance of our results.”

For the second tournament in a row, rookie Max Marsico tied for second with a score of 70. Marsico finished just one shot behind the leader, Maryland junior John Popek.

2009-10 Ivy Rookie of the Year Colin St. Maxens, senior Kevin Huntington and junior Dillon Hakes tied with of score of 75.

Though it may be Penn’s best result of the 2010 season, the runner-up spot is a familiar one to the Quakers, who have had the same result at the Rehoboth Beach tournament since 2008.

Unlike last year, however, the inclement weather forced the Quakers to cut the tournament down to 18 holes from 36.
