Fifth Place Finish For Bears At Ivy League Championship

April 18, 2005

Hamburg, NJ - Bears' head coach Ed Hanley thought the Bears would make progress at this year's Ivy League Championship after finishing eighth a year ago. Hanley was correct in his assessment as the Bears put together solid second and third round scores to place fifth at the 2005 Ivy Championship at the 6,711-yard Ballyowen, Golf Club.

Brown shot a three-round 899, with scores of 313, 299 and 287. Both the second and third round scores for the Bears were the second lowest for the day in the eight team field. Princeton captured the Ivy title with a three-round 862, followed by Cornell (893), Penn (894), Columbia (895), Brown (899), Dartmouth (916), Yale (919) and Harvard (927).

The future of the Brown program looks extremely bright following the play of sophomore Lanny Benson (St. Louis, MO) and freshman Larry Haertel (Greenwich, CT), who both finished tenth overall with a three-day 224. Benson's (77, 77, 70) two-under par 70 in the final round was the fourth best score of the day, while Haertel's (79, 71, 74) one-under par 71 in the second round was the round's third best score.

Brown's solid play didn't stop there. Senior captain Robert Chen (Orangeburg, SC) placed 11th in the field of 40 players, shooting a three-day 227 on rounds of 77, 74, 76. Senior James Hahn (Rumford, RI) also came through for the Bears with a 22nd place finish individually on rounds of 80-77-72-229. Sophomore Aaron Telch (Palo Alto, CA) also scored for the Bears with a three-round 240 (85, 84, 71). His final round 71 was the seventh top score of the day.
