Eder Moreno (Madrid, Spain/Lander/Saint Helena) shook off a shaky first two rounds with a 76 on Sunday, while Forest Swisher (Titusville, NJ/Hopewell Valley Central) rounded out the top finishers for the Broncs in the third round with a 77.
QUOTES & NOTES
“We really played a solid round and blew up at the end. Extremely disappointing. Jake played a solid round. He is extremely talented. It’s been a trend for us lately. Big numbers late have absolutely killed us.” – Rider Head Coach Jason Barry
• In shooting a one-over 72, Sollon birdied two holes, carded a bogey on three and parred the remaining 13.
• Simone was even through 15 holes Sunday, but carded an eight on the Par 4 16th and a bogey on 17 to finish five over.
The Broncs return to action Tuesday, when they play take part in the Saint Peter’s Peacock Invitational at Neshanic Valley Golf Club in Neshanic Station, NJ.
