PSUD Golfers Take Third in the PSUAC Championships
The Penn State DuBois golf team completed another extremely successful season by taking third place in the PSUAC Conference Championships as well as a 16th place finish in the USCAA National Tournament on October 13th and 14th.
PSUD was lead by PSUAC All-Conference selections freshman Tyler Woodard (Smethport HS) and sophomore Vinnie Montanari (Redbank Valley HS). Woodard led the team will an 85/87 for a two-day total of 172. Montanari carded 86/91 for a two-day total of 177. Woodard and Montanari were both name to the PSUAC All- Conference team.
Mitchell Gilmore (Ridgway HS) and Kristy Hanes (Elk County Catholic) rounded out the PSUD scoring. Gilmore turned in a 96/90 for a total of 186 and Hanes was close behind with an 89/98 and a 187.
"We lost our top five golfers from last year's PSUAC Championship team and Vinnie was the only golfer back. Tyler, Mitchell, and Kristy all really stepped in and filled the void that was left due to matriculation to Penn State Main Campus," stated head golf coach Pat Lewis. He added, "Tyler and Vinnie really played well at the championship. Vinnie peaked at the right time and I believe that Tyler will be in the 70's next year on a consistent basis. I felt bad for both Mitchell and Kristy because they both have scored so much lower all season long and they both had a couple of off days. They will both be back next year with Tyler to make some noise in the conference."
The Penn State DuBois golfers finished their second season with a final record of (21-7-2). This gives the PSUD Golf Program an overall record of (52-14-2) since the start of the golf program last season.
