Diplomats Cruise to ECAC Crown
LEBANON, Pa. – Cameron Warner shot 78 on Saturday for a 36-hole total of 152. His effort was good enough to capture the ECAC Mid-Atlantic Championship and pace Franklin & Marshall to the team title. All five of F&M's golfers placed in the top six spots in the 18-golfer field. Only second place finisher, Alvernia's Casey Osborne, broke up the Diplomats' sweep of the leaderboard.
Osborne shot 155 (77+78) over 36 holes on the par 72 Lebanon Country Club course. He was four strokes ahead of Brendan Mohler (80+79=159). Jeremy Rubin (81+79=160) took fourth, while Danny Liebowitz took fifth to round out the scoring contingent with a two-day total of 632 (81+80=161). F&M held 32 strokes on Alvernia (340+324=664). Centenary (N.J.) rounded out the scoring with a 693 (354+339=693).
Warner's victory is the second of his career. He has finished in the top five in seven of the 26 tournaments he has played in his career. The tournament victory was the third in as many events for F&M. It also closes the fall season for the Diplomats.
