In a battle with teams from both the East and the Atlantic Regions, the Wilmington University golf team sits in a tie for third place at the Dr. Edwin B. Cottrell Invite hosted by West Chester at the Penn Oaks Golf Club on Sunday afternoon.

Freshman Joey Russo led the Wildcats with a 73, sitting in a tie for third individually. Junior Andreas Lunding shot a 75 in the first round, good enough for a tie for 10th overall.

Junior Jordan Lamb posted the third best score of the round for the Wildcats, shooting a 78 to sit in a tie for 19th overall. Senior Alexander Lautenschlaeger rounded out the Wildcats 305 with a 79, sitting in a tie for 28th overall after the first round.

Sophomore Sam Clark closed out the day for the Wildcats with an 81, now in a tie for 37th overall after the first day.

Russo trails the leader by four strokes heading into Monday's round as Indiana (Pa.)'s Kenneth Sames posted a 69, the lone sub-par score of the round. Millersville's Conor Gilbert is second after shooting a 72 in the first round.

The Wildcats look to make up the four-stroke difference on Monday, starting with a 9 a.m. shotgun tee-off to conclude the tournament at Penn Oaks.
