Bison men’s golf wrap up their season


Morgan Sohosky, Contributing Writer

The Bison men’s golf team competed at the Patriot League Championship, hosted by the U.S. Naval Academy, this past weekend, May 1-2. It was a 54-hole event, with 36 holes played on Saturday and the final 18 on Sunday. The course was played as a par 70 at 7,025 yards. “The weather was nice. It was a warm 70 degrees with some wind,” Jackson Bussell ’23 said.

As a team, the Bison held on to fourth place throughout the weekend. They had three rounds at 300, 311 and 304 for a total of 915. They were 49 strokes behind the winning team, Loyola Maryland. The best first round for the team was carded by Bussell with a 72, with second-best clinched by Blake Wisdom ’23 at 73; the best final round was Chris Tanabe’s ’21 even-par 70. 

Individually, Wisdom and Tanabe were neck-and-neck at the top within the Bison with three-day totals of 224 (T-11) and 226 (T-13), respectively. Bussell finished with a 235 (T-27) on the weekend. Jason Lohwater ’22 and Josh Holtschlag ’23 both were right behind with a 237 (T-33) and Jack Gardener ’22 with a 242 (39). 

Unfortunately for golf fans, the event served as a cap on this year’s season. Thankfully, next fall, the entire men’s team will return for another exciting year – with the notable exception of graduating senior Tanabe, who is headed to University of Maryland to continue his golf career and further his education.
