CANISIUS STARTS SPRING SEASON IN PENNSYLVANIA

  • Silver Creek Country Club is a par-72, 6,643-yard course designed by Donald Ross.
  • This will be the Golden Griffins' first action since the Binghamton Fall Invitational, which was held last October. That event was rain-shortened to 18 holes.
  • Canisius will play all four of its spring season events in the month of April, capped by the team's trip to the 2014 MAAC Golf Championship April 25-27.
LAST TIME ON THE TEE
  • Canisius finished fourth in the 13-team field at the Binghamton Fall Invitational Oct. 6, 2013.
  • The Griffs posted a team score of 296 (plus-8), led by sophomore Hunter Sagar's score of two-under par 70.
  • Canisius ended the fall season placing in the top-10 in four of the five events the team took part in.
  • The Binghamton Fall Invitational was scheduled to be a 36-hole event, but the second round was rained out.

A LOOK AHEAD

  • Canisius will play all of its spring schedule in the month of April this year.
  • The Griffs will return to Pennsylvania next week (April 14-15) when the Blue and Gold takes part in the St. Francis Red Flash Spring Invite at Sunnehanna Country Club in Johnstown, Pa.
  • Canisius will also get the chance to play at the famed Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford, N.Y., April 21-22. The Oak Hill Collegiate tournament is being hosted by Notre Dame.
