Mustangs Win Stevenson Spring Invite, Maisel, Angle Finish Tied for Second

UPPERCO, Md. - The Stevenson men's golf team won the tiebreaker over Rutgers-Camden to take first place overall at the Stevenson Spring Invitational, held at the Piney Branch Golf Club. The host Mustangs, who finished with a team score of 313 (+29), won the tiebreaker due to their fifth golfer having the lower score. Stevenson has taken first place in this tournament three years in a row. The win was also the Mustangs' first team victory on the season. 

Leading the way for the Mustangs were freshman Shane Angle and senior Josh Maisel, who both carded scores of 75 (+4) to finish tied for second. The second-place result was Angle's fourth top-5 finish on the season. Maisel has two top-5 finishes on the year. 

Junior Matthew Shur notched his lowest round of the spring with a 79, earning him fifth place overall. 

Junior Matthew Maione rounded out the team score with an 84, which was good enough for eighth place. Junior Tyler Slusarczyk was the deciding factor in the match as his score of 85 was four strokes better than Rutgers-Camden's fifth golfer, thus giving the Mustangs the team title. 

Graduate student Matt Rentz carded an 86 for the Stevenson "B" team, while junior Jake McNamara shot an 88. Freshman Mike Festa shot a 91 for the Mustang "B" squad.

The individual title went to Richard Stolz of Rutgers-Camden, who shot an even-par 71. 

The Mustangs will tee-off next at the 48th Camp Lejuene Intercollegiate, held at the Paradise Point Golf Course in North Carolina. The four-day tournament begins on Thursday, April 4.
