First-year Garrett Leib entered the Gettysburg Fall Invitational as an individual and shot a team best 82 on Saturday afternoon at the Hanover Country Club in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania. Leib was not one of the five scores to factor into the overall team score, but his round was six strokes better than his collegiate debut at the Messiah Falcon Fall Classic on Sept. 13.
Of the Jays’ golfers to score on Saturday, senior Kyle Hakun finished with the lowest round, shooting an 83. Junior Craig Eidle finished right behind Hakun, shooting an 85. Senior Chuck Johnston, first-year Josh Diker and sophomore Tyler Goldberg all finished with scores of 87, 89 and 97, respectively.
Leib’s score placed him in a five way tie for 30th in the individual standings. He shot 11-over par on a par 71 course.
Gettysburg College and Lebanon Valley College finished in a two-way tie for the overall team title, finishing 22-over par. Lebanon Valley earned the tiebreaker due to comparison of fifth scoring player scorecards.
McDaniel College’s Brandon Vance took home the individual title, shooting an even par 71 on Saturday. He was the only golfer to shoot par.
Elizabethtown College will compete in three more tournaments this fall before shutting it down until the spring season. The Blue Jays will look ahead to the Muhlenberg Fall Invitational on Monday, Oct. 3 at 12:30 p.m.
