BALTIC, CT – Freshman Jake Sollon (Venetia, PA/Peters Township) shot two-under through two rounds as the Rider University men’s golf team opened play at the VGA/UConn Collegiate Invitational at Mohegan Sun Golf Club Friday. As a team, the Broncs sit in seventh of 10 teams at 20-over. 

Sollon and fellow freshman Eder Moreno (Madrid, Spain/Lander/Saint Helena) both shot three-under 69 in the first round, while Sollon shot one-over in the second round to place tied for third on the day. Moreno finished the day with a 77 to wrap up the day at two-over. Senior Parker Mann (Blauvelt, NY/Tappan Zee [Seton Hall]) shook off a first-round 79 with a second-round 75 to finish third on the team at 10-over for the day. 

QUOTES & NOTES
“It could’ve really been a special round this morning. Eder and Jake played great. It was our low round of the year. We were sloppy this afternoon. We made some silly mistakes and made a few big numbers. Jake played another solid round. His game is in great shape. We’re still happy with the way our games are trending. We’re close. We’re going to look to finish strong tomorrow.” – Rider Head Coach Jason Barry

• Sollon has now carded a score of 73 or better in four-straight rounds, spanning the Princeton Invitational, the Peacock Invitational and today’s two rounds at the VGA/UConn Collegiate Invitational. 
• The Broncs’ collective 294 in the first round was Rider’s low score for a single round this year.
