LAKE BUENA VISTA, FLParker Mann (Blauvelt, NY/Tappan Zee [Seton Hall]) shot a team-best 76 as the Rider University men’s golf team sits tied for third following the first round of the 2017 MAAC Championships at Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course. The Broncs combined to shoot 313 for the day, four strokes behind Siena (309), one behind Monmouth (312) and tied for third with Saint Peter’s and Iona.  

Sam DiGaetano (Titusville, NJ/Hopewell Valley Central) shot a 78, while Eder Moreno (Madrid, Spain/Lander/Saint Helena) was right behind him with a 79. Jake Sollon (Venetia, PA/Peters Township) and Aaron Simone (Niskayuna, NY/Niskayuna) both shot 80 to round out the Broncs’ line-up. 

QUOTES & NOTES
“We played a horrible front nine, which included a four-stroke penalty. The guys hung in and we are happy to be only four back. Our games are in good shape and we know today’s performance is not the kind of golf we have been playing as of late. We’re looking to get off to a good start tomorrow and put ourselves in the hunt going into Sunday.” – Rider Head Coach Jason Barry

• Mann played even par on the back nine, sandwiching a birdie on the 10th and a bogey on 18 around seven pars. 
• DiGaetano also settled in on the back nine, shooting one-over. 
• Moreno, Sollon and Simone each had two birdies on the day. 

UP NEXT
The Broncs continue play in the MAAC Championships on Saturday at Walt Disney World’s Magnolia Golf Course in Lake Buena Vista, FL. Simone is scheduled to tee off at 9 a.m., followed by Sollon, Moreno, DiGaetano and Mann in nine-minute intervals.
