Men’s Golf ties for first at Rhode Island Invitational
Much like the women’s rowing team, the men’s golf team enjoyed a successful week in their lone home contest of the week. The Rams tied with Rollins for first place in the Rhode Island Invitational at Quidnessett Country Club in Warwick, Rhode Island. It was the team’s second team title of the season. The Rams were led by Dawson Jones who was one of three golfers to finish two rounds under par. The Rams now enjoy some time off as they prepare for the Atlantic 10 Championships which starts on April 27 in Orlando, Florida.
Cerrato Notches Career Win 100
