Tough Times In Terp Territory

Nick Pandelena led the Boston College men’s golf team at the Maryland Terrapin Invitational. The Eagles finished in fourth in the 12-team tournament, which featured the Terps, Loyola Maryland, and Elon. On the individual leaderboard, Pandelena came in fifth. On the first day of play, the senior shot a 72. In the next two rounds, Pandelena shot a pair of 73s to finish the tournament with 35 pars and nine birdies to end the two-day outing at 2-over par.

Pat Albanesi was closest to Pandelena on the leaderboard, as he shot two 73s before struggling to a 79 in the third round of play. The final round pushed Albanesi to finishing nine over par. In addition, Andy Mai finished in the top 30, shooting 10-over at the invitational. John Jackopsic finished two places behind Mai in 31st.

As a team, the Eagles will be disappointed to have let their advantage slip in the tournament. The tournament’s first day of play ended with the team in third place. After shooting a combined 293 on day one, BC shot a 291 in the second round. The Eagles took 306 strokes in the final round, though, pushing them to a finish out of the top three. Elon beat out the Eagles by one stroke.
