DOWNINGTOWN, PA – The York College men's golf team had another fantastic weekend as the Spartans picked up their fourth tournament championship of the year and junior Tyler Newton won the individual championship at the 2018 Rosemont Raven Invitational.
The Spartans shot a school record 283 on Saturday at Honey Brook Golf Club in Honey Brook, PA. The Green and White then shot 325 on a brutal weather day at Downingtown Country Club on Sunday. That score was still good enough to earn a nine stroke victory. Swarthmore finished second (617), Rosemont (619) was third, followed by Farmingdale State (623) and Nichols (640) to round out the top five teams.
Newton earned his third collegiate title with a two-day score of 148. He shot a school-record 69 in the opening round on Saturday. He followed that with a 79 on a much more difficult weather day on Sunday. Newton won the tournament by three strokes over Kyle Henofer from Arcadia. Henofer shot a 72 on Saturday followed by a 79 on Sunday. The tournament championship is Newton's second of the year as he also won the Montgomery Cup in the fall.
Sophomore Morgan Uhlick was York's next finisher as he tied for sixth with a two-day total of 153. Uhlick shot 71 on Saturday and followed that with an 82 on Sunday.
Freshmen Luke Fayocavitz and Joel Marshall each finished tied for eighth with a 154. Fayocavitz fired a 73 on Saturday and an 81 on Sunday. Marshall had a great day on Saturday as he shot an even-par 70 as he was one stroke back of Newton. Marshall shot an 84 on Sunday as he finished tied with Fayocavitz and Nichols' Dylan Casserly for eighth.
Sophomore Zach Billings was the Spartans' fifth tournament participant as he shot a two-day total of 160. Billings shot a 77 on Saturday followed by an 83.
The tournament is the final tune up for next weekend's Capital Athletic Conference championships in Cape Charles, Virginia.
Spartan head coach Dave Boslough likes the way his team is shaping up heading into the conference championships.
"We are clicking at the right time," said Boslough. "We are really rounding into shape and we are in good position to play well at next weekend's CAC championships. We are in a good position to contend for a title."
The Spartans head to Cape Charles on Wednesday for a practice round and the three round tournament kicks off on Thursday, April 19 and concludes on Saturday, April 21.
