LAWRENCE, Ohio – The Capital University men's golf team opened up its season at the Gatorade Intercollegiate Classic, hosted by The College of Wooster, over the weekend. Saturday kicked off the two-day tournament, and Capital put up consistent numbers despite battling tough breaks and weather. Out of 10 competing teams, Capital finished seventh and was led by Capital's top placer, Jake Barstow.

Barstow, a sophomore from Logan, Ohio, finished tied for 12th after putting up back-to-back 75 scorecards over the weekend. With his total 36-hole score of 150, Barstow served as Cap's top placer by one stroke.

Junior Logan Holbrook (Logan, Ohio/Logan) turned in the second-lowest score among Capital's weekend lineup. He matched his teammate on day one but put up a 76 on Sunday afternoon, good for a total score of 151 and a share of 14th place.

Junior Noah Iovino (77-75-152) finished inside the top 20 overall and one off the pace of Holbrook. The Dublin, Ohio native finished with a share of 17th overall.

Freshman Billy Rosemeyer (Gibsonia, Pa./Bishop Gates Golf Academy) debuted with a 79-79-158 line to place 38th.

Senior Justin Dearth filled out the Capital lineup, placing 50th (80-84-164).

Allegheny College (Pa.) finished first in the team standings with a 291-297-588 total over the two-day tournament. They pulled out the victory by 10 strokes over second place Lynchburg College.

Capital (306-305-611) beat out Adrian College (624) for seventh and was just three strokes off the heels of sixth place Heidelberg University.

The event was held at Zoar Village Golf Course in Lawrence, Ohio.
