(Updated) The Saints completed round two early this morning at the Connecticut Cup. Michael Shine and Scott Kim are the Saints top performers after two rounds. Shine and Kim are tied for the 35th position, shooting a combined 154.
The men's golf team is currently tied for ninth place in the 17-team Connecticut Cup in Ellington, Conn. Sophomore Brendan Quintana was Siena's top day one finisher, firing an opening round 73 to place eighth overall.
"We were led by our two newcomers Mike Shine and Scott Kim who both played consistent and steady all day," said Coach Wronowski. "Brendan Quintana led us in the morning round with a team low round of 73."
The second round results were not immediately available because all teams had not completed the total 36 holes due to darkness.
The Connecticut Cup is the third Tournament for the men's golf team this fall and their first competition since the Cornell Invitational three weeks ago.
Michael Shine continued his strong performance by shooting a 77 in the opening round. Shine is currently seven strokes behind the leaders: Hartford's Evan Russell, Connecticut's Zach Zaback and Colgate's Chris Wilson.
As a team, the Saints are 16 stokes behind overall leader Hartford (293), and they have positioned themselves in striking distance entering the final round Tuesday.
There are three MAAC schools participating with Siena. The Saints trail Saint Peter's (307) and Iona (308) and lead Fairfield (315) by six strokes.
