Eagles Take Fifth In Two-day Tourney
After shooting 420 on Saturday, the Eagles trimmed 18 strokes from their scorecards on Sunday finishing with 402 for the day and 822 for the weekend at the Piney Branch Golf Club.
Eagles head coach Jason Badecki said that playing in a two-day tournament is a great experience for the program and will help them prepare for the MAC Championships on April 27. The Eagles finished ahead of MAC opponents Stevenson (885) and Lebanon Valley (982) but finished behind Manhattanville (795). The Eagles tied for fifth with Susquehanna University.
Gettysburg College won the invitational outright with a score of 697.
Eastern's Kaleigh Boreman chopped her day-one 105 down to a 91 on day two to finish in 17th place overall. Boreman birdied on the 15th hole on Sunday. Bianaca Scrimali finished 25th overall shooting 104 on a day one and a 97 on day two. Kearby Benak and Sarah Hart finished in 27th and 28th place with a 211 and 214, respectively.
Coach Badecki commented that the Piney Branch greens were unforgiving--undulated, firm and fast--making the par-71, 5,801-yard course a tough play.
The Eagles will now take the next two weeks to prepare for the MAC Championships.
