MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Senior Michael Veverka (Brunswick, Md.) etched his name in the record books on Monday morning as he shot a three-under-par score of 69 to record the lowest single round total in the history of UMES golf. His effort in the first round of the Myrtle Beach Invitational has helped the Hawks sit in seventh-place with a total score of 305. The team total in the round is also the second lowest in program history.

Veverka is currently tied with Appalachian State’s Casey Komline for first-place. His performance was backed up by sophomore Jon Seward (Ft. Washington, Md.), who shot a three-over-par score of 75 to stand in 30th. The round proved to be three strokes better than Seward’s previous best round that was set last year.

Freshman Norman Blanco (New Orleans, La.) was the third golfer for UMES and he shot a six-over-par score of 78. Blanco now sits in 40th place and is four places higher than senior Paul Cecil (Severn, Md.), who shot an 83 to stand in 44th.

Appalachian State leads the tournament with a score of 285. Presbyterian is second with 287, while High Point stands third with 290.

The Hawks will continue action tomorrow at the par-72, Myrtle Beach National. Cecil will tee off first for the men at 7:38 a.m. and will be followed by Blanco at 7:46 a.m. Seward tees off eight minutes later at 7:54 a.m. and Veverka begins his day at 8:02 a.m.
