This weekend, Oct. 23-25, the men’s golf team will travel down to North Carolina for its final tournament of the fall season. The men will be at Kilmarlic Golf Club in Powells Point, N.C. for the Old Dominion/Outer Banks collegiate invitational.
This three-day tournament consists of 18 schools, including city rival St. Joseph’s University, Colonial Athletic Association rivals the University of Delaware, George Mason University, host school Old Dominion University, and a few other big schools as well, such as the University of Louisville and the University of Richmond.
The competition is steep for a Drexel team that has struggled to find any rhythm so far this fall season. Drexel is coming off a tournament where they finished fifth out of five schools, but were only 14 shots back of the winner Goldey-Beacom College, who shot a flat 300.
At the Philadelphia Fall Classic the team saw the continued improvement of their young core, which should be a big positive for the Dragons. Sophomore Ben Hinge shot a 77, while junior Ben Feld and freshman Jamie Parsons each shot scores of 78.
The Dragons will be taking five golfers with them for the event in Feld, Hinge: senior Andrew Lawson, junior James Braunsberg and senior Mike Serensits[AM1] . As this is the final event for the team this fall, they really want to finish it strong going into the winter, but they also need to make sure they know what needs improvement before the golf season starts up again in the spring.
This season has been tough for the Dragons, as they have had many standout performances from individuals, but have never been able to put it together and finish strong as a team. Head coach Mike Dynda and his staff knows what the team needs to work on and should have the team ready to play this weekend.
As the nice weather starts to slip away here in the northeast, the team will try to complete their fall competition with a bang this weekend down in the Outer Banks.
