Peter Scialabba ’15 and Thomas Walter ’14 led the Bison’s two five-man golf teams to a strong finish at the Bucknell Invitational on Sept. 14 and 15. Scialabba and Walter finished sixth and ninth, respectively, earning the Orange and Blue fourth- and fifth-place team finishes out of the 10-team pool.

After posting a 304 team score in the first round, the Orange team fired an impressive 298 in the second round and moved into fifth place. The Blue team posted consecutive team scores of 309, being led by an outstanding one-over-par 71 in the second round by Scialabba.

“We had high hopes heading into the weekend, and we did not play as consistently across the team as we wanted. Several guys had great starts, and others finished well, but only Peter and Thomas appeared to play well the whole weekend,” Nick Geissler ’16 said. 

Both Bison teams went low in the third and final round, moving the Orange team into fourth place and the Blue team into fifth. This strong finish will hopefully propel the Bison to another successful finish this weekend at the Cornell Invitational.
