Canisius golf in 13th place after day one at Bucknell


Mike Donner
BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Freshman Mike Donner shot a career-low 73 and sophomore Matt Genaway also carded a 73 on Monday as the Canisius golf team took part in the first round of the Bucknell Invitational at the Bucknell Golf Course in Lewisburg, Pa. As a team, the Golden Griffins recorded a team score of 299, which places the team in 13th place in the 18-team field.
Both Donner and Genaway are tied for 35th in the field after the first 18 holes in the 36-hole tournament. Genaway's 73 on Monday ties his season-low round for the fall campaign, as he also shot a 73 in the second round of the Little Three Championship back on Sept. 11.
Donner's three-over par score of 73 on Monday came after the freshman posted a pair of birdies on the front-nine, making the turn at just one-over for the round. Genaway had three birdies on the day in his round, with two of those birdies coming at the par-5 ninth hole and par-5 15th hole. Junior Jaret Chipman is tied for 60th in the field after he shot a six-over par score of 76 and senior John Dantonio shot 77 on Monday, which places him in a tie for 73rd.
Canisius' team score of 299 is 19 strokes back of first-round leader Temple, after the Owls posted a team score of 280, which stands at even-par in the team event. Wayne State (283), host Bucknell (284), Monmouth (205) and Fairleigh Dickinson (286) round out to top-five teams in the field.
Temple's John Barone is one of 10 players in the tournament to shoot under-par on Monday. He leads the tournament after round one after he carded a four-under score of 66.
The Griffs close out their trip to the Bucknell Invitational on Tuesday when the Griffs return to the course for the second and final round of the two-day event. Canisius' first golfer is set to tee-off at 9:15 a.m.
