Goodwin takes seventh, men's golf competes for first time since October
KEENE, N.H. - During its first competition in nearly six months, the Saint Michael's College men's golf team finished the two-day Franklin Pierce University Spring Invitational fourth among five squads on Saturday at the Bretwood Golf Course. The Purple Knights last took part in a meet in mid-October at the New England Intercollegiate Golf Association (NEIGA) Championship, where they booked their best finish since 1997.
Saint Michael's compiled 679 strokes to outpace the fifth-place Franklin Pierce "B" team by 19. The University of Massachusetts at Lowell took the top two spots, with its "A" team winning with 613 shots.
Senior John Goodwin (Wolfeboro, N.H./Kent School) shaved nine strokes off his Friday total during the second day, shooting a 74 to finish seventh with 157 total shots. Junior Nicholas Angelo (Sutton, Mass./Saint John's) fired a 170 to take 17th, and classmate George Flanagan (Andover, Mass./Andover) shot a 177. Sophomore Steve French (Goffstown, N.H./Goffstown Area) was the fourth Purple Knight scorer, finishing one stroke short of Flanagan.
Saint Michael's returns to New Hampshire on April 26, competing at the Franklin Pierce Spring Invitational at The Shattuck, which will be held at The Shattuck Golf Course in Jaffrey, N.H.
