Final Round Play at Cornell Invitational Canceled, Blue Devils Tie for Fifth
Sunday's final round of the Cornell Invitational was canceled due to continued rain in the Ithaca area, shortening the tournament to one round. Central Connecticut tied for fifth in the 15-team field. The Blue Devils shot 297 over the only 18 holes of play. Freshman Greg Beloin collected a tie for fifth on the individual leaderboard in his collegiate debut. He posted a 71 at the par 72 Robert Trent Jones Golf Course in Itacha, NY on Saturday. Delaware earned the team title with a 287, while Siena senior Dan Abbondandolo picked up medalist honors with a 67.
Senior Tim Buczak and sophomore Tom Ursa both had 75s, while sophomore Eric Hawerchuk carded a 76. Freshman Keith Kwasnik shot a 97 in his collegiate debut.
What was expected to be a three-round event was shortened to one round after a consistent downpour throughout the day Saturday and all morning Sunday kept scores low, as 10 of the 15 teams in the field shot under 300 as a team.
Central Connecticut will compete at Yale's Macdonald Cup next weekend. The two-day event on the Yale Golf Course gets underway on Saturday, Oct. 4.
