Ian Simon ’15 Makes "Smashing Collegiate Debut"

The Muhlenberg College sports information office reports that Park graduate Ian Simon (Class of 2015) made a “smashing collegiate debut” at the Moravian Fall Invitational on September 14, 2015. 

The Muhlenberg men’s golf team got its 2015-16 season off to an extraordinary start, winning the Moravian Fall Invitational.

The Mules tied Moravian with a score of 305 and was awarded the championship on the fifth-man tiebreaker. Sophomore Evan Overcash provided the winning margin with an 81, two strokes better than his counterpart from Moravian.

Freshman Ian Simon made a smashing collegiate debut, winning medalist honors with a 2-under-par 70, four strokes ahead of two golfers who tied for second place. Simon birdied the first hole he played, the 400-yard, par-4 18th, bogeyed two of the next four holes and did not miss par again, shooting two birdie 2s.

Since 2000, Simon’s 70 was the lowest score by a Mule golfer in the first tournament of the year as well as the lowest score by a Mule freshman. 

Congratulations, Ian!
