Tracy leads Arkansas to win

Jump to results CAMBRIDGE, MD – University of Arkansas freshman Ethan Tracy made his Razorback debut memorable leading the men’s golf team to victory while earning medalist honors at the Maryland Intercollegiate in Cambridge, Md., Sunday. The Hilliard, Ohio, native fired a course record seven-under-par 64 in the opening round at the River Marsh Golf Course at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Resort Sunday morning. He paced Arkansas into the top spot on the team leaderboard as the teams returned to the golf course for the second round also on Sunday. Saturday’s opening round was washed out due to Tropical Storm Hanna. Tracy paired his 64 with a second round 68 winning his first collegiate event. As a team, the Razorbacks counted back-to-back 12-under 272s for 544 and the team title by 20 strokes. North Carolina State was second with 564 followed by VCU in third with 565. “I was really pleased with the way our guys played today,” said Arkansas head coach Brad McMakin. “We felt like we had a chance to win this event going into it and we just that. I can’t say enough about the start by Ethan. To come out and win your first event as a collegian is a great accomplishment and I look for him to build on that success all year.” Tracy’s victory was four strokes better than teammate David Lingmerth who posted rounds of 69-67 for 136 to tie for second place. Arkansas’ Andrew Landry tied for fifth overall with a 138 (69-69) and sophomore Sam Chavez tied for 13th with a 142 (70-72). Will Osborne rounded out the Arkansas scores tying for 24th with a 144 (76-68). Arkansas returns to the links next week traveling to the Fourth Annual Gopher Invitational hosted by the University of Minnesota Sept. 11-14.
