The Benedictine men's golf team placed third at the Culver's-Edgewood College Classic, shortened to just Saturday's 18 holes by rain on Sunday. The Eagles fired a team composite of 311, 27 strokes off of the first place UW-Stout team's score, at the par-71 Glen Erin golf Course in Janesville, Wis. Host Edgewood College - also a member of the Northern Athletics Conference - was second with 299. Benedictine sophomore Ryan Feldman's 76 earned him a tie for 12th place. Junior R.J. Schwalbach was tied for 16th place by carding a 77. Senior Andrew Delaney and freshman Dan Langerstrom each turned in scores of 78 (tied for 20th). Jon Price and junior transfer Tim Walters each fired 80's, good for a 29th place tie out of 86 total golfers. For more Athletics News, visit the Athletics Web site.
