Penn State Altoona Golf Defeats Wilson in Dual Meet




4/17/2017 — CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Penn State Altoona golf picked its 2016-2017 season back up on Monday afternoon, facing non-conference Wilson College in a dual meet at Chambersburg Country Club. The Lions prevailed comfortably, winning 349-470.

The event was Penn State Altoona's first since the final day of the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Championships on October 10. It also marked the first half of a home-and-home dual meet series with Wilson this spring.

Adam Osborne (Tipton, PA/Bellwood-Antis) shot a 78 on the par 73 course. The score was his second-best of the season, leading the Lions and all nine players in Monday's meet.

Chris Michelone (Altoona, PA/Bishop Guilfoyle) was second on his squad with an 88, and Carl Gelardi (Middletown, NY/Minisink Valley) shot 89 to rank third. Clayton Hagenbuch (Latrobe, PA/Greater Latrobe) carded a 94, and Matt Krupa (Huntingdon, PA/Huntingdon) rounded out the Lions' five with a 96.

In women's golf action, Claudia Ochoa (Fairfax, VA/Robinson Secondary) competed for Penn State Altoona and shot 105. The event marked her sixth round of the season and her first since the AMCC Championships on October 10.

Penn State Altoona golf has one more spring date to finish off its 2016-2017 season. The men's and women's golf squad will host Wilson next Tuesday, April 25 at the Lions' home course, Sinking Valley Country Club. That dual meet is scheduled to begin at 1:00 p.m.
