Senior Wins Low Medalist Honors with 2-over 72

            WATERVILLE, Maine -- Senior Tristan Dundas (Abbotsford, B.C.) posted the low score of the day, a 2-over par 72, to lead the University of Southern Maine golf team to a first-place finish at the University of Maine at Farmington Invitational played Sunday at the Waterville CC. 

            Southern Maine led a field of nine teams with a four-man aggregate score of 306 to finish eight shots ahead of University of New England.  UMF was third at 318, and Thomas College took fourth at 320.  The first-place result was the third in four tournaments for the Huskies this fall.

            Dundas is the third different USM player to take low medalist honors at an event this year joining seniors Brendon Croteau (Lewiston, Maine) and Greg Kalagias (Saco, Maine/Thornton Academy) as winners this season.  Croteau was low medalist at the John Queenan Memorial on September 3, and Kalagias took the honor at the Thomas Invitational, played at Waterville CC, on September 17.

            All five USM players posted scores in the 70's on Sunday.  In addition to Dundas' 72, Croteau posted a 7-over par 77.  Senior Parker Sanderson (Bangor, Maine) carded a 78, and Kalagias and senior Ryan Dee (Houlton, Maine) matched cards with 79's.

            The Huskies will be back out on the links on Wednesday playing in the UNE Invitational at the Cape Arundel GC in Kennebunkport, Maine.
