MOOSIC, Pa. - Joseph Fucigna's April hot-streak continued this weekend at Glenmauara National Golf Club. The Franklin & Marshall sophomore shot a 77 in both rounds of the Glenmaura National Collegiate Invitational, which wrapped up Monday. Fucigna's 154 was matched by teammate Andrew Woods, tying the Diplomats for tenth place in the field of 60. F&M finished in third place tie with York amongst the 12 teams competing on the par 71, 6,339-yard course.
Fucigna's April tear has featured six rounds over four tournaments. He has shot in the 70's in each of those rounds, and has finished in the top ten of each of the tournaments. Woods shot a 78 and a 76 at Glenmaura, and is finding his groove again, having shot a 78 or better in each of his final three rounds heading into this weekend's Centennial Conference Championships at The Bridges Golf Club in Abbottstown, Pa.
Centennial foe, McDaniel, won the team title turning in a combined 599 (307-292) for 21 strokes on second place Susquehanna (312-308-620), and 25 strokes on F&M (313-311-624) in third.
