Tuesday October 2, 2012

CLARKSBURG -- Drury golf coach Don Dagnoli said that Matt Lawrence has been a real leader for the Blue Devils this year.

On Monday, Lawrence led the Blue Devils with a career-best round as Drury beat Wahconah 159-186 at the North Adams Country Club.

Lawrence shot a 1-over-par 35 and birdied the ninth.

"He’s been playing great all year," said Dagnoli. "He’s leading our team and showing why he’s No. 1."

Drury (7-3) needs one more win to qualify for the Western Mass. Division II tournament. Wahconah is now 5-4.
