Gannon’s Michael Marsico advances out of NCAA golf regional at Totteridge

Bill Beckner

Gannon sophomore Michael Marsico grabbed the final individual qualifying spot Saturday for the NCAA Division II Golf Championships with a 54-hole total of 4-over-par 220 at the Atlantic/East Regional tournament played at Totteridge Golf Club near Greensburg.

Marsico, a Fox Chapel graduate, shot 73, 74 and 73 over the 7,154-yard layout to take the fourth spot. He is Gannon’s first player to advance to nationals since Matt Barto (Leechburg) in 2015. Matt Paradis of Southern New Hampshire was medalist at 5-under 211 (67-70-74), while Owen Elliott of Shepherd finished second at 214 (71-74-69) and Wilmington’s Ryan Rucinski was third at 219 (74-73-72).

Three teams also advanced to nationals: Southern New Hampshire (899), Bentley (901) and Wilmington (903).

Gannon posted its best regional finish in program history (fourth).

The national tournament will be May 20-22 at The Resort at Glade Springs in Daniels, W. Va.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
