MANCHESTER, Vt. - In the annual one-day Sap Bucket Invitational at Ekwanok Country Club, the Williams College men's golf team finished third behind winner Trinity and second-place Middlebury.
Unlike most of the Ephs' events, the Sap Bucket features eight players from each team, with the lowest six scores from each team counting toward the team's total. The Ephs eight-man lineup at Ekwonak on Tuesday included a perfect symmetry of two players from each class: freshmen David Brewer and Jimmy DeLano, sophomores Beau David and William Conyers, juniors Sam Goldenring and Ben Beiers, and seniors Jake Foehl and Will Beischer.
Beau David showed he had no trouble dealing with the firm, fast greens at Ekwonak by turning in a brilliant 2-under 68, his lowest ever round as an Eph. Goldenring came in with the second lowest Williams score with a 2-over 72. Trailing David and Goldenring were Beiers and Foehl, who added another solid pair of scores with a 77 and 78, respectively. Conyers finished with 80 on the number, and the Ephs scoring was rounded out by an 84, the number with which both Beischer and Brewer finished. DeLano shot 87.
The Ephs finished with a total of 459, two shots behind second place Middlebury, at 457, and 12 shots behind winners Trinity, at 447. Hamilton finished in fourth with a total of 472.
David's 2-under round gave him his first individual victory of his college career, by a margin of three shots over Trinity's Will Rosenfield. Goldenring finished in solo third, one shot behind Rosenfield.
The Ephs are back in action at this weekend's Skidmore Invitational at Saratoga National Golf Course in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

Mount Greylock Committee Hears Concerns About Turf Field Plan

Rubber infill from the turf field at Weston Field adheres to a reporter's leg after a minute lying down on the surface to take a photo.
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock School Committee last week declined to slow plans for installing an artificial turf field at the middle-high school but members noted that there is still time to weigh health and environmental concerns before shovels go into the ground.
The full School Committee earlier in the spring authorized the Phase 2 grounds subcommittee to put the turf field out to bid this summer.
Since that time, committee members have heard from a number of residents concerned about studies that have linked "infill" materials in used in turf fields to higher rates of cancer and environmental contamination due to runoff from those fields.
"Some of the chemicals found in crumb rubber are known to cause cancer," a fact sheet from the Toxics Use Reduction Institute at University of Massachusetts at Lowell reads in part. "Because of the large number of chemicals present in the infill, as well as the health effects of individual chemicals, crumb rubber made from recycled tires is the option that likely presents the most concerns related to chemical exposures."
