Portsmouth, RI - Freshman John Giannuzzi (Wellesley, MA) placed second individually at the Northeast Invitational to help Brown to a sixth place finish overall in the 11-team tournament held at the par-72 Green Valley Golf Club in the final competition of the season for the Bears. The Bears finished with a 27-hole score of 455, with URI winning the tournament at 446, followed by Sacred Heart (449), Harvard (453), Quinnipiac (453), central Connecticut (454), Brown, Dartmouth (461), Army (468), Bryant (471), Fordham (482) and Wagner (495).
