Gingras, Johnson lead men's golf at 77th NEIGA Championship





BREWSTER, Mass. -- The Bates men's golf team shot a second day score of 331, eight strokes better than Monday's score, to finish 32nd out of 34 teams at the 77th annual New England Intercollegiate Golf Association Championship at Captains Course, ahead of Suffolk University and Worcester State College.

Junior Corey Gingras (Eastford, Conn.) shot a second-day score of 82 led the Bobcats with a two-day score of 166, tied with four other players for 114th best out of 169 overall. Sophomore Garrett Johnson (Lexington, Mass.) led the Bobcats with his second-day score of 81 to finish in a five-way tie for 119th.

Junior Jared Quenzel (West Hartford, Conn.) came in at 170, while first-year Garret Bonney (Sudbury, Mass.) shot an 84 on Tuesday to finish at 174.

In Monday's portion of the tournament, senior captain Lee Smith (Lexington, Mass.) shook off the injuries that have kept him out of action for most of this season to lead Bates. Unfortunately, an injury kept Smith from continuing on to play on Tuesday. Smith, a one-time NESCAC All-Conference selection, shot an 11-over-par 83 on Monday, putting him in a nine-way tie for 108th place among 168 individuals.
