Anania Earns First Collegiate Victory
“I am really proud of Brian [Anania],” said coach Matt Grobe. “He has been waiting a long time to get his first college victory. He has put himself in position several times, and I am so glad he finally broke through.”
Anania shot a career-tying 68 in his final round. The 4-under score put his total tally one stroke ahead of Mitchell Thomas (Tenn. Tech) and Baxter Reeves (Cincinnati) for the victory.
The Herd finished second overall with a three-round score of 3-over 867 – five strokes shy of tying first-place school Austin Peay State.
“I am proud of the team for hanging in there and finishing second,” Grobe added. “This was a really good field, so even though we are not happy with second it is still a good finish for us.”
The 7,100-yard course gave the Herd trouble in the final round, causing three members of the team to shoot a combined 12 strokes over par.
Despite the struggle, the Herd had three top 10 finishes – including Anania. Sophomore Logan Lagodich (Canton, Ohio), who shot the first two rounds identical to the victor, completed the last round with a 2-over 74 that put him in seventh place with an even-par score. Senior Jeremy Rogers (Buckhannon, W.Va.) also shot a 2-over 74 final round to total his three-round score to a 1-over 217 for an eighth place tie.
The Marshall squad will see action once more this fall season. The OBX/ODU Collegiate at Kilmarlic will take place Oct. 20-22 in Powells Point, N.C. to round out the front-end of the Herd’s season.
After completion of the Bearcat Invitational, the Herd stood:
Brian Anania: 1 (72-70-68-210)
Logan Lagodich: 7 (72-70-74-216)
Jeremy Rogers: T8 (70-73-74-217)
Will Evans: T57 (73-78-80-231)
Clark Robinson: DQ (73-71-DQ)
