Cobleskill Golf Team Ranked 4th in Pre-Season Poll

Written By Editor on 9/4/17 | 9/4/17

Cobleskill, N.Y.: At the SUNY Cobleskill men’s golf team’s annual “President’s Cup” intra-squad competition contested at the Cobleskill Golf & Country Club, the Fighting Tigers home course, a number of questions were asked about the upcoming season. Much like previous years the Fighting Tigers started the three-day Ryder Cup formatted event in which roster is split into a pair of teams designated “Team USA” and “Team International” with the knowledge that they had been ranked fourth overall in the 2017-18 North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) Pre-Season Coaches Poll.  
After  a 2016-17 season that saw the Orange & Black win four invitational titles while placing fifth overall at the 2017 NEAC Championship Tournament and 13th at the 2016 Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Mid-Atlantic Championships the point of concern among fans is if the team can weather the  loss six letterman to graduation and transfer and remain competitive.
After watching the competition which saw “Team USA” retain the cup Fighting Tiger Head Coach Joseph McCarthy enters his eighth season at the helm of the program with a guarded optimism.
“Clearly we are going to do some rebuilding this year with our losses to graduation and transfer but we also have some experienced players returning and some talented newcomers who can help us get to where we want to go.”
Returning this year for the Orange & Black will be a pair of veterans who are NEAC Championship Tournament tested in long hitting senior Dylan Mulvihill, Clifton Park, N.Y., Shenendehowa High School, and crafty junior Nate Stanton, Somers, Conn., Somers High School.
Among the new comers a pair of junior college transfers could play a major role in the team’s success this year as junior Colin Hizny, Endicott, N.Y., Union-Endicott High School/Broome Community College, and junior Cody Latimer, Mayville, N.Y., Chautauqua Lake High School, Jamestown Community College, looked good in the opening season workouts.
The Fighting Tigers will open the 2017 season when they host their own Cobleskill Jug Classic on Friday September 1st at the 6361 yard/par 70 Cobleskill Golf & Country Club in Cobleskill, N.Y. beginning at 12:00 p.m.
