Center Valley, Pa. -
The Neumann College men's golf team finished the first round of the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference championships with a nine stroke lead yesterday. Headed into today's round Head Coach Frank Sill wasn't taking anything for granted Sill stated, "We still have our work cut out for us, a nine stroke lead isn't very big when you play against the strong caliber of golf we play against. I know our team will fight hard today to as will everyone else." Sill was right on with that assessment. The nine stroke lead could not hold up and each team played very well.
Taking first place for the tournament was Cabrini College who shot a 635. The Cavaliers came out red hot and kept their torrid pace up throughout the afternoon. Chris Lawlor led the Cavaliers with a low score of 153 for the two day event. Alvernia College finished in third with a score of 668 behind Derek Stewart.
Neumann was led by the trio of seniors Mark VanVliet (Dorchester, ONT), Greg Warrington (Woodlyn, Pa.) and Eric Stoyanvich (London, ONT). All three Knights medaled for the tournament. Warrington attacked the course today shooting a 74. Both VanVliet and Warrington made first team while Stoyanvich made second team. VanVliet and Warrington both shot 156 for the tournament with Stoyanvich shooting a 160.
