Chase Blaich Leads Field After Day One of the Fred B. Kravetz Invitational

ROCHESTER, N.Y. --- Senior Chase Blaich leads the field with an opening round four-over par, 76, as Huntingdon College's men's golf team finished the first round of Fred B. Kravetz Invitational in third place, 330, at the Oak Hill Country Club on Friday.

The Hawks finished three-strokes behind McDaniel in third place with a 330.

Huntingdon's Blaich led the Hawks and all individuals with a first round four-over par, 76. Blaich will attempt to win his second tournament of the season in the final round on Saturday. Senior J.P. Kircher finished with a 11-over par, 83, tied for 13th place while freshman Cates Culpepper trailed Kircher by one-stroke tied for 16th place with a 12-over par, 84.
