Woods; Diplomats Capture Moravian Invite

Complete Results

DANIELSVILLE, Pa. -Led by Andrew Woods' medalist effort, Franklin & Marshall College's men's golf team picked up where it left off in the spring capturing the Moravian Fall Invitational on Thursday. F&M won five of the 13 tournaments played last year en route to a 21st place finish at the NCAA Division III National Championships. The Diplomats finished outside of the top five just twice in those events.

 Woods captured his first invitational since the fall of 2007 with a one stroke edge on Muhlenberg's Zachary Oyer. He shot a 73 to go one over on the 6,437-yard course at Woodstone Country Club. His round was good enough to top a field of 87 golfers from 20 teams. With a 307, the Diplomats edged out Muhlenberg by two strokes in the team standings.

Woods, an all-region selection last year, picked up his first win since the 2007 Lebanon Valley Fall Invitational. He was the first of two Diplomats in the top five. Brendan Mohler tied with Moravian's Lucas Smith for third place, each shooting 75.

All of the Diplomats' golfers finished in the top 40. Playing his first collegiate round, Jeremy Rubin shot 78 to land in a six-way tie for 11th place. Joe Fucigna finished in a fourth place tie for 31st with an 81, while Robert Moriarty rounded out the F&M contingent with an 82 to finish in a five way tie for 37th place.

F&M returns to action on Saturday for the first of two rounds at the NCAA Preview Event, hosted by Elizabethtown.
