Bonnies Tied For Third Following Opening Round at Matthews Auto Intercollegiate

APALACHIN, N.Y. – An opening round 72 from senior Matt Abendroth led the St. Bonaventure golf team into a tie for third following Sunday's action at the Matthews Auto Intercollegiate.

Host Binghamton shot a blistering program record score of 277 in the first round at The Links at Hiawatha Landing to take a commanding 12-shot lead over second-place Longwood (289). St. Bonaventure, which has won the event the past two years, turned in a team score of 293 to match Columbia's round in a third-place tie. Robert Morris and Rider are tied for fifth in the field of 16 teams at 298.

Abendroth stands in a tie for 12th on the individual leaderboard with his even-par showing. Sophomore Danny Gianniny ranks tied for 20th after fashioning a 73 while the final three members of the Bonnies lineup, sophomore Jack Geise, senior Brent Morgan and junior Zach Chaddock all are tied for 24th on the individual leaderboard after shooting matching rounds of 74.

Playing as individuals, Erik Stauderman (74), Dylan Glatz (76), Nolan Ditcher (79) and Josh Roselli (89) all carded rounds for the Bonnies.
