BEALLSVILLE, Md. - The Maryland men's golf team finished the Georgetown Intercollegiate tied for sixth place with an 869 (288-279-302). The Terrapins were tied for third coming into Tuesday's final round, however they were unable to match their early success as they finished at 302 on the day.
Junior John Popeck led Maryland with a team-best 209, tying him for second place individually with Matt Moot of Campbell University. Moot and the Campbell Camels won the event thanks to an 847. Miami (Ohio) and first-place individual finisher Austin Kelly finished in second place while Richmond rounded out the top three with an 861.
Popeck's strong performance rounded out an impressive fall for the Washington, Pa. native. Over six weeks, Popeck twice posted the top score, at the Rehoboth Beach Fall Invite and the Wolfpack Intercollegiate.
Freshman Sean Bosdosh followed Popeck for Maryland with an overall 218, good enough for 23rd overall. Transfer Will Wiseman finished tied for 37th at 222 while junior Joey Rice and senior Tom Hanna III finished tied for 45th and 55th, respectively.
The Terps will take a winter break before returning to play in the spring. Maryland's sixth-place finish at the Georgetown Intercollegiate was the fifth-straight top-half finish; the Terps finished in the upper half in all but one event, the season-opening Charleston Invitational.
