The Canisius College golf team posted a team score of 305 and is currently tied with four other teams in third-place after one round at the Cornell Invitational at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course in Ithaca, N.Y. The tournament's second round was suspended late Saturday afternoon because of rain.
The Golden Griffins sit just five strokes behind Binghamton after 18 holes. The Bearcats shot a team score of 300 to take the lead after the first round in the three-round, 54-hole event. Drexel sits in second place after the Dragons shot 302, with Canisius, host Cornell, Drexel and Towson all tied for third in the 15-team field.
Canisius sophomore Andrew Romano shot a four-over par score of 75 in round one and is tied for 13th. Freshman Cory Cullen is tied for 19th after he carded a 76. Cullen is one of three players to shoot 76 in the opening round, a score he shared with teammate Brendan Polsin. Sophomore Hunter Sagar is tied for 32nd with his first round score of 78.
The second round of the Cornell Invitational is set to resume at 7:30 a.m., Sunday morning. After the golf course's grounds crew has a chance to change pin locations, the third and final round will get underway.
