North Collins, NY – The Hilbert College golf program hosted their own Invitational on October 3 at Gowanda Country Club on a cool and wet Sunday. The 48 degree temperature made it challenging for all participants, but Medaille’s John Haberman and Penn State Behrend’s Marc Neiswonger were able to knot the score at 78 each on the par 72 course. Haberman was the top individual medalist based on match cards with Neiswonger taking second place.  He held a 3 stroke lead over the next closest competitor.

Penn State Behrend captured the team event with a 333 total score, 5 strokes ahead of Medaille College. Rounding out the scoring was D’Youville College (369) and Hilbert College (395). 
Junior John Nowak (Hamburg, NY/Frontier) was the top Hawks golfer (92). Junior Patrick Brooks (Orchard Park, NY/Orchard Park) was 5 strokes behind with a 97. Finishing the Hilbert scoring quad were junior Jim Pernick (Tonawanda, NY/St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute) and freshman Mike Werner (Orchard Park, NY/Orchard Park). Both men swung for a 103 score. Also competing for the Hawks – although their scores did not count in the team total – were freshmen Joe Pernick (Tonawanda, NY/St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute) – 110 -  and David Grigsby (West Valley, NY/West Valley) - 116.
