Linksters Look to Change Fortunes

The Big Red linksters will look to take Binghamton by storm this weekend.

Coming off a less than stellar display at Lehigh last weekend, the squad is searching for redemption. After finishing behind Ivy studs Princeton and Pennsylvania, the Red will be aiming to improve upon its tournament performance in the last match of the fall season.

In order to achieve this interim head coach Matt Baughan has decided to change the lineup, which means that many of the upper classmen will be staying at home, as Baughan tries to get the younger members of the team playing experience.

Leading this group may be junior Ross LeFleur, who shot an 80 on the opening day of play in Bethlehem last weekend and followed it with a 78. The highest placed Cornellian in the Lehigh Invitational, he will need another strong showing to guide the Red. Classmate Tim Roth will also have to rise to the occasion. He is coming of a sound effort, posting a 163 over thirty-six holes.

Diaper dandy Justin Watzka has shown signs of promise. He carded the lowest 18 hole total for the Red with a 75. Another break through performance could bring the squad much needed consistency.

The two-day affair, slated for tomorrow and Sunday is Cornell’s last tournament of the millennium.
