Men's Golf set for first-ever Atlantic East Conference Championships

LANCASTER, Pa. – On Friday, the Atlantic East Conference will hold the first-ever Men's Golf Championship at the Country Club of Scranton, Pa. The two-day event tees off Friday morning with the champion hoisting the trophy by the end of Saturday.

The Wesley College men's golf team were predicted to finish fifth at the championships, according to the pre-championship poll released by the conference on Thursday. Wesley tallied 10 points in the poll. Cabrini enters the championships as the favorite with 25 points and four first-place votes. Marymount collected the final first-place vote and 20 points. Marywood and Neumann were slated to finish third and fourth with 16 and 13 points respectively. Immaculata rounded out the poll in sixth place with six points.

Wesley will lean on the experience of upperclassmen such as seniors Cody Simet and Kevin Polk and junior Josh Covey to score low at the two-day conference championships Covey has carded rounds in the 80's in all four of Wesley's spring tournaments leading up to the conference tournament with his low of 80 coming at the Swarthmore/Neumann Invitational on March 23. Simet scored the team's lowest 18-round score of the spring season when he shot a career-low 78 at the Moravian Spring Invitational on April 11.
