Amherst’s individual golfers failed to reach the heights of the fall season.

This weekend, the Amherst College men’s golf team traveled to NESCAC rival Williams to compete on Saturday and Sunday, April 22-23, along with six other teams in the Williams Spring Invitational.

After one day of play, the team posted a score of 318 and sat in fifth place. On day two, however, the team improved their score to 303, to finish in the overall fifth spot.

First-years Will Lonquist and Jeffery Herr led the team with scores of 152 and 153, respectively.

Sophomore Jack Burlison added a 79 on day one and 78 on day two to finish with a solid 157, while Sam Procter ’18 finished with a two-day total of 159.

Nicholas Sullivan ’20 and Jack Klien ’20 rounded out the Mammoths’ totals, with 168 and 174.

The Ephs, taking advantage of their home course, won the tournament with a team total of 577. Trinity and Middlebury finished in second and third place, respectively.

Amherst returns to this same golf course in Williamstown for the Little Three Championship on Wednesday, April 29th.
