Irish travel to Lone Star State for invitational
The Observer | Monday, March 24, 2014
The Irish begin play in the two-day Lone Star Invitational in San Antonio at 8:30 a.m. Monday.
The tournament, which is held at the Briggs Ranch Golf Club, is hosted by the University of Texas-San Antonio and has a 15-team field, including Baylor, Central Arkansas, Houston Baptist, Louisiana Tech, New Mexico, North Texas, Purdue, Rice, Sacramento State, South Dakota State, Southeastern Louisiana, Texas State and UT Arlington.
The Irish are sending senior captains Andrew Carreon and Niall Platt along with junior Patrick Grahek and freshmen Liam Cox and Matt Rushton. Carreon, a San Antonio native, was originally entered as an unattached individual competitor, but moved into the Notre Dame starting five because sophomore Cory Sciupider is ill and unable to compete. This will be the second start of Carreon’s career.
The 54-hole tournament is broken into three rounds, with the first two played Monday and the final round completed Tuesday.
