ATHENS, Ohio - The Battle for the Bell hits the links before the football field this week, as the Ohio University men's golf team opens its 2013-14 season on Monday at the 44th annual Marshall Invitational.
The Guyon Country Club in Huntington, W.Va., will play host to the two-day event, beginning with two rounds of action on Monday. The final 18 holes will be played Tuesday. The par-71 course plays at 6,523 yards.
Ohio, a participant in every Marshall Invitational to date, will compete along side in-state foes Bowling Green, Cincinnati, Cleveland State, and Dayton, as well as Eastern Kentucky, High Point, Loyola (Md.), Northern Kentucky, Richmond, Western Kentucky, William & Mary, Wright State, Xavier and host Marshall.
The Bobcats will look to improve upon a fifteenth place finish at the Marshall Invitational last season. Ohio will send six student-athletes to Huntington including returning seniors Bradley Lucas (Worthington, Ohio) and Phil Gieseker (Saline, Mich.).
Incoming freshmen Ty Herriott (Brandywine, Md.) and Peyton White (Huntersville, N.C.) will compete in their first collegiate tournament for Ohio.
The players will tee off at 8:30 a.m. Monday morning. Recaps of both days' action can be found right here on OhioBobcats.com.
