NESHANIC STATION, NJ – Freshman Jake Sollon (Venetia, PA/Peters Township) shot an even-par 72 to finish second individually and lead the Rider University men’s golf team to a second place finish as a team at Tuesday’s Peacock Invitational at Neshanic Valley Golf Course.
Senior Parker Mann (Blauvelt, NY/Tappan Zee [Seton Hall]) was just a shot back of Sollon at a one-over 73 to finish tied for fourth, while Drew Guarino fired a 74 to finish two over and tied for 11th, while freshmen Eder Moreno (Madrid, Spain/Lander/Saint Helena) and Forrest Swisher (Titusville, NJ/Hopewell Valley Central) each shot a 75 to place tied for 15th.
QUOTES & NOTES
“We were disappointed not to get the win but are happy to see our games trending in the right direction as we head into the end of our season. The guys played much better as a whole. Jake played a great round after a slow start. He was three over after three and played the rest of the round three under to shoot even par. He always fights and never gives up. We will look to build on the momentum from today as we compete this weekend. Everyone’s game is starting to peak as we gear up for our conference championship next week.” – Rider Head Coach Jason Barry
• Sollon has now carded a 72 in back-to-back rounds, having shot one-over at this past weekend’s Princeton Invitational.
The Broncs return to action Friday, when they take part in the Til Duty Is Done Invitational at Mohegan Sun Golf Club in Baltic, CT.
