Glf takes second in tournament

By Brent Beadling

The varsity golf team turned <>

in their best performance in the Greater Boston League Golf Tournament in many years with a second place finish.

This Greater Boston is the only collegiate tournament in the United States in which 36 holes are played in one day. Not only was the format demanding, but rain and cold weather further added to the stress.

MIT held up well and though they could not catch the strong Boston College team, succeeded in nosing out Harvard by two strokes for second place. Excellent 18-hole rounds were turned in by sophomores Thomas Shea, Sadruddin Hilal, and Wataru Yamagouchi with scores of 81, 82, and 84, respectively. Good overall performances by freshmen Trey Valdez and Erik Norton (with 172's) also helped contribute to the Engineers' strong showing.
