The UR golf team continued its successful season, finishing in a tie for first place at last weekend’s nine-team St. John Fisher/Nazareth Fall Shootout, giving them their third top-five finish in a row.UR was paced by sophomore Robert Sherman, whose two-day total of 154 was his best finish of the season and tied him with classmate Stephen Goodridge. Sherman’s ability to step it up when his team needed it was extra special.”It felt great to be able to contribute two respectable rounds to the team,” Sherman said. “I feel happy about the way I played, especially in the first day’s conditions.”The weather was a mix of rain and cold that made an already harrowing course all the more challenging.”It’s difficult to keep warm in such conditions and to repeat the same golf swing when you’re cold,” Sherman said. “It was also a very narrow and difficult golf course. Any round under 80 in those conditions was very respectable.”Sophomore Patrick Shanahan led the team with a nine-over 152 total, tying him for third place. Sherman and Shanahan were the only two UR golfers to break 80 on both days of the tournament. Sophomores Colin Quillinan and Joe Derrigo rounded out UR scoring with a 162 and 172, respectively. This weekend’s competition is at the Washington and Jefferson College Southpointe Invitational and is the last tourney of the season. “There’s no doubt in any of our minds that we are the best team out there,” Sherman said. “We have the ability to be one of the top 10 Division III teams. Our final tournament of the season is a very important one for us to win.”Allard can be reached at
