Men's Golfers Land Fourth at Canaan Valley

CANAAN VALLEY – The West Virginia Wesleyan men's golf team held on to fourth place at the Wally Edgell Collegiate Championship Tuesday afternoon.

Coach J.D. Lamm's squad posted a day two total of 295 on the Canaan Valley Resort Course, closing the tournament with a team tally of 587. 

Charleston won the 13-team event with a 550 team score, outdistancing runner-up Davis Elkins at 569. 

Zach Chapman had the key round of day two for Wesleyan, firing a three-under par 68 and rallying from 49th place to 19th with a final scorecard of 146 (78-68).

The duo of Colin Chapman (73-75) and Nick West (72-76)  both shot a 148 and were close behind in a tie for 22nd. 

Nicholas Casingal closed the scoring in 33rd place with a 151 (75-76).  After a solid 72 on day one, James Snavely closed the tourney in 47th place with a 155 (72-83). 

"I am very proud of our overall team effort," Lamm said. "We competed very well against some tough teams. We are moving in the right direction. Zach Chapman's round was very impressive. To come back and shoot a 68, after being our fifth guy on the first day, it is really amazing...especially for a freshman."

Charleston's Ritwik Masse won the individual title witih a 132 (69-63) while teammate Justin Westveer was second with a 138 (68-70).

Wesleyan returns to action next Monday and Tuesday in the MEC Fall Classic at Stonewall Resort
