Beallsville, Md. - The Miami University men’s golf team is tied for ninth place along with Xavier University after two rounds at the Georgetown Intercollegiate Tournament Monday. The RedHawks are currently at 30-over par after shooting a 296 in the morning and a 302 in the afternoon round. UAB, which is the ninth-ranked team in the country, is in first place at 8-under par after shooting a 278 in round one and a 282 in round two.

“Today’s performance was certainly not close to the standards we’ve set for ourselves,” said coach Zac Zedrick.

Sophomore Jack Sparling and junior Scott Cahill had the best day among the RedHawks. Both are tied for 23rd place with a final score of 149. Sparling is 7-over par after shooting a 75 in round one and a 74 in round two. Cahill is also 7-over par after shooting a 71 in round one and a 78 in round two.

Senior Austin Kelly and junior Luke Shaughnessy are the next on the leaderboard for Miami. Kelly shot rounds of 77 and 75 to finish at 10-over par.  Shaughnessy is also at 10-over par after shooting rounds of 73 and 79.  Both are tied for 37th. Mark MacDonald is 11-over par after shooting 78 in round one and a 75 in round two, tying him for 43rd place.

“It’s disappointing to see a team as talented as ours play like this,” said Zedrick.  “I know we can bounce back and we’ll finish the fall on a good note tomorrow.”

The Georgetown Intercollegiate Tournament concludes with its final round on Tuesday.
