The Wilkes University’s men’s golf team took third place Wednesday, Sept. 25, at the Scranton and King’s tri-match hosted by Scranton University.

Wilkes’s five participators shot a combined score of 379. King’s College finished in second place shooting a combined 339, and Scranton took first place with a score of 318.

Wilkes’s head golf coach Guy Rothery spent the afternoon match providing his team with constructive criticism.

“We could have played better; it was a rough day overall,” Rothery said.

The tri-match took place at Glenmura National Golf Club, Scranton’s home course. This par-71 course is not open to the public, and is 6,910 yards long.

“The course was tough. The greens were fast and the hazards seemed to be everywhere. The course isn’t very forgiving,” junior Dalton Miliam said.

Wilkes’s top individual performer of the day was Michael Daubert. The senior posted the score of 91. Close behind Daubert was sophomore Arlindo Isidoro with a 94 and Milam with a 95. Senior Darren Mensch finished off Wilkes’s day with a 101.

“It was a gorgeous day to be out on the course no matter what the result was,” Mensch said.

Scranton was lead by the senior duo of Grant Gulick and Charles Hudacek, posting rounds of 75 and 76 respectively. This score earned Gulick the lowest round of the day.

King’s was led by two freshmen, Ryan Tracy with a 76 and Mike Post with a 78.

With Wilkes’s fall season coming to a close, Rothery will lead the team into the spring season with high hopes.

“We look forward to building on these rounds and continuing our progress as we move forward,” Rothery said.

Wilkes will close out its fall season Tuesday, Oct. 1, with a match against Misericordia. This match will be played at Wilkes’s home course, Huntsville Golf Club.
