PISCATAWAY, N.J. – Sophomore Kyle Deisher (Montgomery, Pa./Montgomery Area) carded his third-consecutive round of 73 as the Monmouth University men’s golf team climbed to ninth place in the final round of the Rutgers Invitational, Saturday afternoon at the par-71 Rutgers University Golf Course. The Hawks, who are competing in their first season in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC), finished ahead of four MAAC schools participating in the event.

Deisher finished with a share of 15th place overall with a career-best 54-hole total of 219, erasing his previous mark of 224 set last season at Rutgers’ event. Corey Carrick (Howell, N.J./Howell) carded a team tournament-best even-par 71 in the final round to finish with a 222 (76-75-71) and tied for 27th. Carrick’s score falls one stroke shy of his career-low round of 70 set at the Rutgers Invitational in 2011. Junior Brady Goodling (Manheim, Pa./Manheim Central) wrapped up his tournament two strokes behind Carrick with a 224 (77-72-75), while Colin Buckley (Duxbury, Mass./Boston College H.S.) and Cody Gross (Babylon, N.Y./Babylon) each shot a 78 on the final 18 to finish with 229 (76-75-78) and 232 (78-76-78), respectively. Jesse Hazam (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Mechanicsburg), who was competing as an individual, posted his lowest round of the tournament with a final round 77 to finish with a three-round score of 237 (81-79-77).

For the third-straight year, USC Upstate took home the team title, notching a team total of 855 (289-284-282). Bethune Cookman finished two strokes behind the Spartans with an 857 (286-287-284), followed by Rutgers in third with an 864 (287-284-293). Hofstra took fourth totaling 877 (289-285-303), three strokes in front of Lehigh (288-292-298). Adelphi earned sixth with a total of 882 (286-292-304), while LaSalle (292-292-307) and Savannah State (304-289-298) finished deadlocked for seventh, each with 891. The Hawks and Rutgers’ second squad rounded out the top-10 of the 17-team tournament, each compiling 894 over the weekend.
