The Flames finished the first day of the George Washington Invitational in a two-way tie for ninth place as Liberty and Lehigh carded rounds of 17-over par 305 at the par-72, 6,761-yard Bear Trap Dunes Golf Club on Saturday.

Pennsylvania leads the field of 26 teams as the Quakers fired a four-over par 292 and hold a three-stroke lead over Delaware (seven-over par 295) and a five-stroke lead over Villanova (nine-over par 297).

Seton Hall's Kyle Morris is the clubhouse leader after the first 18 holes of competition as he carded a four-under par 68, which is two strokes ahead of George Washington's Brian Carroll who is in second after a two-under par 70.

Pacing the way for the Flames are Albie Powers and Andrew Turner as both golfers carded rounds of four-over par 76 and are tied for 37th place. Jay Calvo followed and is tied for 62nd after a six-over par 78, while Peter Horstman was one shot behind Calvo with a seven-over par 79.

Sam Nelson, who is competing in the event as an individual, also finished the first round with a seven-over par 79, while fellow teammate Parker McKoy's score was disqualified.

The Flames will conclude the tournament tomorrow with another 18 holes of competition at the Bear Trap Dunes Golf Club.
