HELLERTOWN, PA – The Rider University men’s golf team wrapped up Day 1 at the Coca-Cola Lehigh Valley Invite at Silver Creek Country Club in 14th out of 19 teams Sunday afternoon. The five Broncs in the line-up combined to shoot 314 on the Par 72 course.

QUOTES & NOTES

• Mann added three birdies, with two on Par 5’s and another on the Par 3 eighth hole.
