The lone NCAA Division II school in the field at Towson University’s Whiting-Turner Invitational, the IUP golf team more than held its own on the first day of play Sunday.

Zack Kempa and Sean Sweithelm shot 1-over-par 73s to lead IUP and end the first day in a four-way tie for fifth place in individual play.

After three straight bogeys put him at 3 over after hole No. 11, Kempa birdied three of his last seven holes to recover.

In the team standings, the Crimson Hawks sit in a fifth-place tie with Fairfield at 17-over 305. William & Mary leads the 24-team field at 3-over 291, nine strokes ahead of Rutgers.

Rounding out IUP’s top four were Kenneth Sames, who is one of 12 players tied for 35th at 5-over 77, and Derek Baker, tied for 86th at 10-over 82.

The top four individual scores count toward team scores. Also competing for IUP is Jack Owen (T-121st, 20-over 92).
