The Cayuga Golf Team finished up the weekend tournament play this afternoon, in Cortland, NY, at the Elm Tree Golf Course. The team posted a score of 365, with Ryan Killian (Southern Cayuga, NY) taking low honors for the 6 Spartans competing, shooting an 83 and locking up his slot in the NJCAA Region III tournament May 13th and 14th. With Killian's qualifying score, the Spartans now have 4 qualifiers and Coach Renaud is optimistic Phil Tabone (Weedsport, NY) will lock up the team's fifth qualifier over the course of this coming Friday and Saturday tournaments, hosted by MCC (Wildwood CC) and Genesee CC (Batavia CC), repsectively.
Simon Fricano (Union Springs, NY) continued his consistent play, and 5/6 men Russ Chappell (Union Springs, NY) and Dan Ellingwood (Oswego, NY) both improved on their prior tournament scores.
"Ryan and Simon are going to be our 1 and 2 golfers for the remainder of the season. They have great composure on the course, and are able to keep their hole to hole play at birdie,par and bogie level. Jake Dechick (Weedsport, NY), Gavin Dennis (Weedsport, NY) and Phil (Tabone) just need a little more consistency in their approach shots to the green, and then over their putts once on the greens. I am confident they will get there, and our group of 5 will be putting up rounds in the 70's and low 80's over the course of this weekend, leading into the regional tournament," said Coach Renaud.
Tee times at Wildwood CC (Fri, 5/3) and Batvia CC (Sat, 5/4) are still to be determined at the time of this article.
