April 23, 2006
Vernon, New Jersey - Brown University sophomore Larry Haertel (Greenwich, CT) shot a four-under par 68 for a three-round total of four-under 212, to capture the individual Ivy League title by a five-shot margin, and lead Brown to a third place finish at the Ivy League Championship at the Ballyowen Golf Club.
Haertel, who earned first team All-Ivy honors, is the first Brown golfer to capture the individual Ivy championship. He is the first Brown player to earn first team All-Ivy honors since Rob Swain in 1996.
Brown came into the final round of play in fourth place and shot a team score of 292 in round three to jump ahead of Penn in the standings and place third with a three-round 917, equaling its best finish ever. The Bears also placed third in 1994. Princeton shot a three-day 895 to capture the Ivy championship by a one-stroke margin over Columbia, followed by Brown (917), Penn (918), Yale (929), Dartmouth (940), Harvard (940) and Cornell (960).
Brown's third round 292 was the second best score of the day. In addition to Haertel's sizzling 68, senior Donny Mowlds (Sacramento, CA) shot a two-under par 70 to finish with a three-round 240. Freshman Conor Malloy (Rye, NY) came in with 75 for a three-round 232 to place 16th overall. Senior Danny Wallis (Los Gatos, CA) finished the tournament at 234 to place 18th individually after shooting a final round 77. Junior Lanny Benson (St.Louis, MO) posted a tournament score of 251 after shooting 82 for the Bears on Sunday.
