Lions win 2nd straight title

JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. The Penn State men’s golf team dominated the Bank of Tennessee Invitational, as the Nittany Lions claimed their second straight tournament title after beating all other teams by at least nine strokes.

“Winning the Windon (Memorial Classic) and the Bank of Tennessee takes one heck of an effort,” coach Greg Nye said in a news release.

PSU finished Sunday with a three-day total of a 31-under 833 at the Blackthorn Club at The Ridge, which far surpassed runner-up Missouri’s 22-under 842. Fifteen total teams competed in the tournament, with other scores ranging from 21-under to 40-over.

Penn State’s JD Hughes finished second overall at 14-under, while Charles Huntzinger finished third at 11-under. The individual winner, Missouri’s Hayden Buckley, was 17-under.

The Nittany Lions will resume competition in the spring, in February.

Field hockey

PSU falls in 2OT

COLLEGE PARK, Md. In an evenly matched contest Sunday, where both teams were within one shot on goal of one another, Maryland upset No. 5 Penn State 2-1 in double overtime.

The Terps, who had 12 shots on goal, struck first with a goal by Lein Holsboer. But PSU, which had 11 shots on goal, followed up less than three minutes later with a goal by Abby Meyers.

It took nearly 43 minutes for the next goal, when the Terps’ Carrie Hanks found the back of the net after help from Madison Maguire.

Lions goalkeeper Jenny Rizzo tied a season high with nine saves. Penn State (12-3) will next take on Rutgers at 5 p.m. Friday.
