Men's Golf Team Performs Well at Oglebay Invitational

WHEELING – The West Virginia Wesleyan's men's golf team played Sunday and Monday in the Oglebay Resort Intercollegiate Invitational.

The Bobcats of head coach James Huber placed 10th in a 16-team field.

Wesleyan fired a 315 on day and then dropped 15 strokes on day two for a 300. They ended the two-day Invitational with a 615.

Charleston won the team title with a 562 (287-275).

"The 300 we shot on day two was one of the best one-day team totals in at least the last four years," remarked Huber. "We finished 10th overall but out of the Mountain East Conference teams competing, we placed fifth overall, one position better than how we did at the MEC Championships in the fall."

Nicholas Casingal led the team with a 19th place individually, scoring a 154 total over the two days, including a 72 on day two.

James Snavely followed in 47th (78-76--154), Nick West 53rd (78-78--156), John Huggins 58th (84-74--158) and Austin Skinner 79th (84-88--172).

"Our short game was really good over the two days," Huber remarked. "The guys really grinded it out. This is a really an improved men's team."

There was a three-way play-off that went to the fifth hole to decide the individual winner.

Viktor Pustwo won the championship with a 137 (70-67).

Wesleyan will be back in action on April 10-11 in the MEC Spring Invitational. This event is set for the Edgewood Country Club.
