York College golfers falter in second round at Hershey Cup


After finding itself in contention for a top-three finish after the first day of The Hershey Cup, the York College men's golf team struggled in Monday's second round.

York College Spartans

The Spartans shot a 58-over 342 on Monday, dropping them all the way down from third to tied for 12th for the event, finishing with a two-day score of 663 (95 over par).

Monday's score was 21 strokes worse than the team's score from Sunday's first round, when play was delayed until noon because of high winds. On Monday, the players had to navigate the East Course at Hershey Country Club in soggy conditions. Carnegie Mellon won the event with a 56-over 624, 11 strokes better than runner-up Allegheny College.

Individually, Tyler Newton finished with the best result for York, winding up in a five-way tie for fourth with a two-day score of 13-over 155. After posting a first-day score of 4-over 75 on Sunday, which had him just three strokes off the lead, Newton shot 9-over 80 on Monday to fall out of contention. Bradley Jennette of Carnegie Mellon won the event, shooting 72-75 for a two-day total of 147, winning by six strokes.

The Spartans will be back at Hershey East on Thursday for the Elizabethtown College Spring Invitational.
