“Ryan and Matt are both seasoned seniors,” Herron said in a release. “Both qualified for the State Open and Amateur this summer, and both are proven competitors on varied courses. They each represented Bentley at the NCAA Division 2 regionals this past May in Erie, Penn.”Over the course of 14 rounds this past spring, Daly recorded a 79.86 stroke average for the Falcons. He was fifth of 21 in a tri-match with Assumption, placed fourth of 14 in a dual with Assumption, and tied for 17th among 35 golfers at the Saint Anselm Spring Invitational.
During his sophomore campaign in 2019, Daly had a 77.3 average and was recognized as a Cleveland/Srixon All-America Scholar.“I look forward to working with both as they lead us to more success,” said Herron, whose squad opens the fall portion of its season Sept. 12-13 at the Franklin Pierce Fall Invitational at Keene (N.H.) Country Club. His teams have competed in the last 10 NCAA Division 2 East/Atlantic Regional tournaments and tied for fourth last year.Daly was also an all-star tennis player and captain during his time at Beverly High.||||
