The Quinnipiac University Golf team finished up the spring 2008 season with a 9th place finish at the NEC Championships on May 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in Hershey, PA. The team scores for this tournament are calculated by adding together the best (lowest) 4 scores from each day. The Bobcats finished with a total of 912 over the 3-day, 54 hole tournament, with their scores being 311 on Day 1, 300 on Day 2, and 301 on Day 3.
Sacred Heart won the team portion of the competition with a score of 870. Long Island University and Central Connecticut State followed. 11 teams in total participated. The individual winner was Monmouth University’s Anthony Campanile, (who has his roots in the Jersey golf scene) who shot a 54 hole total of 212, 4 under par. He defeated Sacred Heart’s Patrick Fillian by one shot. In total, only 4 players finished under par.
Individually for the Bobcats, they were led by Ian O’Connor, who tied for 14th place overall with a total of 224. Brady Giroux followed with a 54-hole total of 225. Rounding it out for Quinnipiac were Ryan Reynolds, Charlie Niland, and Jayson Loranger, who all had scores of 235.
That concludes the spring 2008 golf season, and 2007-2008 school year for the Bobcats. That also concludes the college golf career for Kyle Chumas, who graduates in the coming week. The rest of the Bobcats’ now have the summer to work on their games and make themselves better for the upcoming fall season that will be here before we know it.
