MOOSIC, Pa. - Three Terrapins golfers finished among the top 10 finishers on Saturday as the Maryland men's golf team captured championship honors among 14 teams at the Temple Invitational. Held at Glenmaura National Golf Club, Maryland took a four-stroke lead into Saturday's final round of competition, and held off host Temple University for the team title.

Temple's John Rusk (68-71--139) won the individual title, but John Moheyer (Lima, Ohio), Corey Brigham (Rumson, N.J.) and Bobby MacWhinnie (Pittsburgh, Pa.) finished in fifth, sixth and eighth places for Maryland as the Terrapins withstood the Owls' late surge.

Maryland shot three-over par as a team on Friday and outdistanced St. John's after the first round of 18 holes on the 6,585-yard, par 71 track at Glenmaura, with Temple in third place and 10 strokes off the pace. But wet and cold weather conditions hampered the field on much of Saturday, with Temple the only school to shoot under 300 on the final day of play. The Owls blew past St. John's and finished just one stroke behind the Terps in the final scoring.

Moheyer (74-71--145) not only led Maryland with a fifth-place finish, but his turnaround was the key to keeping the Terps in the lead. He was the only Terp with a better round on Saturday, and one of only four golfers in the tournament to shoot par or better in Saturday's final 18 holes.

Brigham (70-77--147), a nationally-ranked senior, shot one-under par in the opening round on Friday, but struggled with a second round 77. Senior Pete Toole (Lancaster, Pa.) was one stroke off the lead after Friday's round, but shot 82 on Saturday to finish 14th (69-82--151). MacWhinnie (74-74--148), a freshman, posted the first top 10 finish of his young career.

Toole's first round 69 was the second-lowest round of the tournament. Counting his finish, Maryland's four top scorers all finished among the top 15 individuals.
