Simon Fricano (Union Springs, NY) carded his second consecutive 79 this afternoon to complete his first appearance at the NJCAA National Golf Championship, finishing 49th overall in the individual category. With the third round washed out, the course still presented challenges on the day with standing water in many of the fairways and rough. Fricano struggled off the tee all day, but was able to scramble to save par on most of the par 4's and 5's.
"Simon hit every par 3 in regulation and had a couple of birdie attempts that could have dropped. I think all in all, he was happy with his overall performance and represented Cayuga in the highest standard with his demeanor and approach to the tournament and its challenges all week long," said Coach Renaud.
"Unfortunately Simon did not capture All American status (top 18 individual finishers), but given the talent and experience in the field, his overall finish is something to be proud of," continued Coach Renaud.
Vincennes College was the team national champion, followed by Sandhills Community College. Ethan Chamineak from Georgia Military College was the individual National Champion, posting a 216 for three rounds, which was even par for the tournament.
