WILMINGTON, N.C. -- The University of Delaware men’s golf team will open its 2014 spring season on Sunday and Monday when the Blue Hens compete in the UNCW Seahawk Intercollegiate at the Country Club of Landfall.
The tournament begins on Sunday with two rounds on the par 72, 6,761-yard Pines & Ocean Course, while the third and final round will take place on Monday. Delaware will be joined in the 13-team field by Army, Campbell, Davidson, East Tennessee State, Elon, East Carolina, Louisville, Navy, Ohio State, South Carolina, Wisconsin and UNCW.
Led by 13th-year head coach Mike Keogh, the Blue Hens are looking to build on a fall campaign that saw them post four top 10 finishes out of five tournaments.
Blue Hen junior captain Niño Rosal leads the Blue Hens after posting a team-best 74.92 average round during the fall while senior and fellow captain Dan Costenbader was second with a 75.42 average, including a seventh place finish at the Binghamton Fall Invitational.
Sophomore Kyle Martin ranked third on the team by averaging 75.92 shots per round and finished 12th at the season-opening Navy Fall Classic, while junior Fraser Graham was right behind him with a 76.00 average round. All four players appeared in each of Delaware’s five tournaments during the fall season.
Sophomore Colin McKenna, who joined the Blue Hens during the winter, will be the fifth UD player competing in the intercollegiate.
Following the tournament, Delaware will be back in action on Mar. 23-25 at the Middleburg Bank Intercollegiate hosted by William & Mary at Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Va.
