BOOTHBAY, MAINE --- The surging Colby College golf team is in third place after one day of the Maine State Intercollegiate Golf Championships and the Mules have two golfers in the top five heading into Saturday's final round at Boothbay Country Club.

The Mules are in third place out of 10 teams with a score of 324. University of New England is first at 315 and Husson University is second with a 322. The Mules just won the Colby Classic and Colby Invitational last weekend.

Pettengill did have a hole-in-one for Colby on the 17th hole. Steve Carroll, a first-year golfer for the Mules, also had an ace during the Colby Classic last Sunday at Waterville Country Club.

The rest of the standings after day one include: 4. Maine-Farmington 328, 5. St. Joseph's 332, 6. Bates 337, 7. Bowdoin 341, 8. Southern Maine 342, 9. Maine-Presque Isle 359, and 10. Maine-Machias, no card.
