Box Score

LONGWOOD, Fla. –After nearly three months away from the fairways, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) Men’s Golf were unable to regain their rhythm as they finished 14th at The Legacy Intercollegiate, Powered by Frontier Secure.  The event took place at The Legacy Club at Alaqua Lakes (Par 72 7160 yards).

Despite not the outcome they were looking for, Maryland Eastern Shore did have a few bright spots. Overall, the club shot a 961 (+97) over the two-day tournament. As a result, the Hawks had the third-lowest round in a three-round, 54-hole event in the program’s Division I history.

Senior Norman Blanco (New Orleans, La.) had the best performances among the Hawks in this event. The Louisiana product shot a 228 (+12), which is tied for the third-best individual average in a 54-hole event.

Furthermore, Blanco recorded a season-best 72 (E) in the second round. Thus, the third time in his collegiate career where he shot par or better.

Other significant fact is sophomore Timothy Mitchell (Glenn Dale, Md.) moving up in the D-1 record book. The Maryland native tied former Hawk Sedrick Bailey with the most events played. Currently, Mitchell has played in 14 tournaments for the Maroon & Gray.



Wofford shot an 859 (-5) and ran away with the event, shooting 28 strokes better than the next opponent. The top two finishers came from the Terriers, Jeremy Grab and Andrew Novak. Both golfers finished tied for first after posting a 209 (-7) in three rounds.

Maryland Eastern Shore looks to get back on track at a familiar course as they travel to Daytona Beach, Fla. for the Gary Freeman Spring Invitational, hosted by Bethune Cookman (March 3-4).
