RESULTS

When and Where: September 30, 2018 – Endicott, N.Y. (En-Joie Golf Club – Par 72)
Score: Southern New Hampshire University (286), 1st/10

Senior Matt Paradis (Hooksett, N.H.) scorched the course for a 6-under 66 in the first round of the Northeast-10 Championship on Sunday at the En-Joie Golf Club, as both he and the Southern New Hampshire University men's golf sit in first place through the opening 18 holes.

INDIVIDUAL SCORERS

  • Paradis, who is going for his second straight NE10 title, is two strokes ahead of Bentley University's Tommy Ethier. The 66 equals the single lowest NE10 Championship round, matching Le Moyne College's Neil Reidy (1998), SNHU's Chris Rivard (2002), Adelphi University's Ryan Snouffer (2013) and former Penmen teammate Jake Nutter (2014).
  • Junior Ryan Anderson (Beverly, Mass.) is tied for fifth after an even-par 72.
  • Freshman Matt Conti (Walpole, Mass.) is 1-over following a 73 that has him in an eighth-place tie.
  • Junior Garret Olivar (Manchester, N.H.) rounded out the Penmen scorers with a 75 and is tied for 18th.

NOTES

  • Junior Drew Kane (Scarborough, Maine), who did not factor in the scoring, turned in a 78.
  • Southern New Hampshire, which is in search of its first conference crown since 2015, is two shots ahead of Bentley with a 2-under 286.
  • In the Northeast-10 Championship Coaches' Poll that was released last week, Bentley was picked to win, with the Penmen slotting in second.
  • Paradis has registered a tournament-best seven birdies through 18 holes.
  • The Northeast-10 Championship is comprised of 50 student-athletes from 10 institutions.
