MOOSIC, Pa. - Franklin & Marshall's men's golf team is in eighth place halfway through a tightly contested, 36-hole Glenmaura National Collegiate Invitational. The Diplomats foursome of Brendan Mohler, Joe Fucigna, Steve Colalillo and Cameron Warner combined for a 316, leaving F&M eight strokes of first place York with a 308.
Mohler shot a 77 at the par 71 Glenmaura National, leaving him in a four-way tie for 12th place. Mitch Mercer of Susquehanna is in first place, one stroke under par. Fucigna is one stroke behind Mohler and company, also in a four-way tie. Fucigna shot a 39 on both halves Sunday. Steve Colalillo shot a 40-40 to land in a six-way tie for 25th place through 18 holes.
