    NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Three UConn golfers finished in the Top 25 as the Huskies captured a seventh-place finish Sunday after the final round of The MacDonald Cup at the Yale Golf Course.

    Junior Dane Rosa (Mansfield, Conn.), playing as an individual, followed up his 3-under par 67 in Round 2 with a 1-over 71 in Round 3 to finish 76-67-71-214, good enough for a tie for 18th place in the 74-player field. The 67 was Rosa's first sub-70 round of his college career.

    Sophomore Zach Zaback (Farmington, Conn.) was just one stroke behind Rosa, finishing 762-70-73-215, which placed him in a tie for 21st place. Zaback also recorded one of just five eagles during the three rounds of competition.

    UConn sophomore John Flaherty (Glastonbury, Conn.) was a stroke behind Zaback, 73-73-70-216, finishing in a deadlock for 24th place.

    Also for the Huskies, freshman Eric Dietrich (Cheshire, Conn.) finished in a tie for 35th place with a 75-72-73-220, junior Chris Wiatr tied for 45th place with a 78-73-72-223, and sophomore Corey Birch (Ridgefield, Conn.) finished 65th with a 75-75-82-232.

    UConn's aggregate 295-288-288-871 was seventh in the 14-team field, the fourth straight Top 10 finish for the Huskies. The University of Illinois won the MacDonald Cup with a 269-270-268-807, while Illinois' Brian Campbell was the individual medalist with a 13-under par 64-67-66-197.

    UConn finishes the fall portion of its schedule on Oct. 14-15, when it hosts the 5th annual Connecticut Cup at Ellington Ridge Country Club in Ellington, Conn.
