Spartan Golf Enjoys Best Weekend In Program History

Spartan Golf Enjoys Best Weekend In Program History

Cayuga's golf team earned two tournament championships this weekend at Onondaga Community College (Timber Banks Golf Club) and Tompkins-Cortland Community College (Elm Tree Golf Club). 

Both wins came after opening the season with a second-place tournament finish at their home course at Highland Park Golf Club.

On Saturday at Timber Banks, sophomore Hunter Hubel (Fulton, NY) earned men's medalist honors, shooting a 72. Spartan women's golfer Jenna Fields (Skaneateles, NY) earned the women's medalist by shooting eight strokes better than the next best female competitor. 

Freshman EJ Townsend (Port Byron, NY) finished second overall with a 74. 

At Elm Tree Golf Club on Sunday, the Spartans edged Niagara by one stroke with a 312 total. Hunter Hubel finished individual runner-up with a 74, while fellow sophomore Ryan Chalupnicki (Auburn, NY) shot a 76 to help the cause. 

Fields again earned female medalist honors, separating herself from the field by five strokes.

The Spartans began the weekend on Friday hosting their own tourney at Highland Park, finishing in second to champion Niagara. Hubel (83) led the way for the men's team in windy conditions and quick greens that led to higher scores. 

Fields won her initial tourney in the women's division by two shots.

Cayuga travels to the Mohawk Valley tournament on April 19 and the Herkimer tourney on April 20 prior to the Easter holiday.
