Warrior Golf Finish 2nd At CACC Tournament

BLUE BELL, PA - The 2014 Central Atlantic Colligate Conference Men's Golf Championship was contested on April 8th - 9th at the Blue Bell Country Club, Blue Bell, PA. This is an annual two day, thirty-six hole contest hosted by the CACC.

Going into the tournament, Nyack College was ranked third among the conference's ten teams. After the first round, the warriors were in second place, behind  number one ranked Wilmington University and ahead of second ranked  Concordia College. The team finished  with a score of 320 facing the challenges of rain, wind and cold tempts on a difficult Arnold Palmer designed track. Alejandro Sanchez (Madrid, Spain) led team scoring with a five over par 76 followed by Sean Lawrence (Monroe, NJ) and Elliot Wakefield (Liverpool, England) with rounds of 79. 

The second day of the event proved to be a grind for the team.  A final team score of 327 was this Spring season's highest round, but low enough to secure the second place tournament finish. Wilmington University won their fourth consecutive CACC Golf Championship with a two-day team score of 624. Nyack College finished in second place (647), followed by Concordia College (653), Chestnut Hill College (668) and Dominican College (677) to round out the top five. Philadelphia University took sixth place (684) with Goldey-Beacom College (695), Post University (702), Felician College (711) and University of the Sciences (741) finishing in seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth place.
