Men's golf team stays unbeaten

By Frank C. Popp266-9272

The men's varsity golf team continued their unbeaten streak Tuesday by obliterating Worcester State College and Assumption College. The Beavers fired a 405, well ahead of Worcester State's 443 and Assumption's 450.

The match was highlighted by a great play from Michael A. Leabman '95 and Michele G. Lombardi '95. Coach Jack Barry was elated. "The makes me very happy because it proves we have depth. A couple of our veterans had off days, but our freshmen were there to pick up the slack," he said.

Leabman shared medalist honors with Erik S. Norton '92, both carding 80's. Lombardi was close behind with an 81. Heath J. Hawker '94 and team captain Wataru Yamaguchi '92 rounded out the scoring for MIT by shooting 81 and 83 respectively.

The Beavers picked up most of their strokes on the back nine, with Norton firing a staggering even par 36, and Lombardi and Leabman each shooting a two over par 38.

The two wins, along with the lashings of Merrimack and WPI Sunday, raise the Beavers overall record to 16 wins, 0 losses and 1 tie.
