Men's Golf - Wed, Sep. 14, 2011
(Notre Dame, IN) Sophomore Matthew Code (Ontario, Canada) and junior Mike Prior (Schoolcraft, Michigan) guided Holy Cross to a second place finish at Meshingomesia Country Club at the Indiana Wesleyan Fall Invitational earlier this week.
In the second tournament of the year, the young Saints team played well, but ultimately came up just a bit short to cross-town rival Bethel College. The Saints were lead by sophomore Matthew Code, who fired a two-under par 70 on day one which tied him for the lead after the first round. Junior Mike Prior was not far off the pace, carding 77-74, good for a seven-over par 151, and a tie for seventh place overall.
On day two, Code struggled a bit and carded a five-over par 79, which put him into solo fifth place position for the tournament.
Freshman Chris Noble (Niles, Michigan) also turned in a solid performance carding a 79-74, good for a nine-over par 153 and tied at thirteenth place overall with sophomore Mike Fitzgerald (Flossmoor, Illinois) who shot 75-78.
Rounding out the Saints' lineup was senior Eric Hartstein (South Bend, Indiana) who fired 84-78 for a total of eighteen-over par 162 and a tie for thirty-ninth place.
Bethel was not to be denied this time around shooting a team score under 300 both days and by having four of its five golfers place in the top ten.
Holy Cross has finished second twice this fall, having Matthew Code place within the top five both times.
The Saints are back in action September 16th and 17th at Malone University.
