Huskies Finish Sixth in Team Standings
BRUNSWICK, Maine -- University of Southern Maine junior Tristan Dundas (Abbotsford, B.C.) captured the individual medalist honor by five strokes at the Bowdoin College Invitational with a 36-hole total of even par 144.
Dundas carded a 2-over par 74 in Sunday's final round at the Brunswick CC to go along with his opening-round score of 2-under par 70. Dundas is the first USM player to win the tournament since Tom Murray took low medalist honors in 2013.
Dundas got it to 3-under par for the tournament with a birdie on the third hole, but a string of three consecutive bogeys to close the front nine left him at even par at the turn. A bogey at the 13th push him to 1-over, but he regained that stroke with a birdie on the 16th for the second straight day. Over the two days, Dundas played the final five holes (14 through 18) in 6-under par.
The Huskies finished sixth among the 12 teams in the final standings with a two-day score of 621 (308-313). First-day leader Saint Anselm College took the team honor with a score of 603 (303-300), three shots ahead of runner-up Providence College (309-297). Endicott College (304-306) and Nichols College (310-300) tied for third place at 610.
USM junior Greg Kalagias (Saco, Maine/Thornton Academy) finished in a four-way tie for 25th place with a two-day total of 156 (76-80). Classmate Ryan Dee (Houlton, Maine) completed the 36-hole tournament at 157 (80-77) to tie for 29th place, and junior Brendon Croteau (Lewiston, Maine) posted a score of 164 (82-82).
The Huskies hit the road on Tuesday traveling to the Waterville CC to play in the Thomas College Invitational.
