York College junior Kevin Long finished second and teammate Eric Stauffer had a hole-in-one to help the Spartans finish sixth at the Glenmaura Collegiate Invitational on Monday.
The Spartans shot a Day 2 total of 324, two strokes more than they shot as a team in Sunday's first round. The two-day total of 646 left them three strokes out of a top-five finish. Scranton won the event in a playoff against McDaniel. Both teams finished with a team score of 622.
The early highlight for the day came when Stauffer stuffed a 5-iron in the cup on the 193-yard par-3 seventh hole. The ace was the Spartans' first of the year and the first of Stauffer's Spartan career.
Long finished one stroke back of Elizabethtown's Ryan Laudeman. Long shot 73 for a two-day total of 147, which was 5-over-par.
Junior Travis Oot shot a 9-over-par 80 on Monday and finished tied for 21st with a 162 total. David Boslough concluded the tournament with a combined score of 169 after carding an 87 on Monday. That left him tied for 33rd in the 60-player field. Stauffer shot 86 and finished the tournament tied for 35th with a two-day total of 170.
