COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The Maryland men's golf team has released its five tournament fall schedule, head coach Tom Hanna announced Thursday morning. With the return of all players from last year's competing squad and the addition of the Bosdosh brothers, Stephen (20) and Sean (18), Maryland is set for great heights in the 2010-11 season.
Maryland's upperclassmen ranks have a solid lineup headed by seniors Tom Hanna III and Andrew Kay. In the junior class is Terrapin standout John Popeck who led the team five times last year and earned five top-20 finishes, two in the top-10. Sean Bosdosh claimed the crown in this year's 89th Maryland Amateur this past weekend on the Golf Course at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md. He is now the youngest champion in Amateur history. Bosdosh turned 18 in May.
To start off the year the Terps travel to the College of Charleston Invitational September 13 and 14. Four days later the team returns to their home state of Maryland for the Maryland Intercollegiate at the Hyatt River Marsh Golf Club September 18 and 19. Last year junior John Popeck and Sean Brannan finished top-20 in the challenging field which included multiple Atlantic Coast Conference members.
At the end of the month, the Terrapins look to keep their winning streak going as they return to Rehoboth Beach, Del. During the spring Maryland took the title for the second straight year. Popeck led the Terps with a second place finish at the one-day tournament with a one-under-par 141.
October has Maryland taking a trip to ACC country in Raleigh, N.C., for the Wolfpack Intercollegiate on the 4th and 5th. The following weekend the Terps close out their fall slate in Akron, Ohio, at the Firestone Invitational. Last fall Maryland competed only as individuals. Senior Andrew Kay was the team's top performer coming in fifth.
