All was quiet last night at the Stowe Flake Inn in Stowe (where else?), Vermont, where the Harvard golf team spent the evening before the North district qualifying round for the ECAC Championships.
But amidst the tranquility, Crimson linksters were making plans to earn one of the top two spots and win the right to travel to Lancaster, Pa., for the championship October 18.
The team's practice round, shot in ski country's chilling rainfall yesterday, raised hopes for a triumph in today's tournament.
The team shot well all-around yesterday, with co-captain Carroll Lowenstein '82 shooting an especially fine one-over-par 73 on the Stowe Country Club course.
The Stowe course is "not as tough as Brookline"--the team's home course at The Country Club in Brookline--freshman Chet Nastala said.
Sixteen teams are included in the lineup for the divisional tournament. The top two finishers in today's 18-hole match will meet the six finalists from three other ECAC divisions at the championships, hosted by Franklin and Marshall College.
Edward P. Markey, director of athletics for St. Michael's College which is hosting the tournament, said that he is "not aware of any early favorites." But Nastala predicted Harvard could take the honors. "Dartmouth and Salem State are probably our toughest competitors," he said.
Tee-off time is 8:07 this morning, with fog predicted to obscure much of the Stowe Country Club's scenic 18 holes. However, Carroll Lowenstein, who will hit Harvard's first shot of the day, is known to have attempted instrumental navigation in the past.
