The 10-man Skidmore golf team has gained national recognition for its achievements during the fall season. The Golf Coaches Association of America voted the Thoroughbreds the No. 15 team in all of Division III in the GolfWeek/Nike Golf Division III Poll. Oglethorpe University was voted No. 1, with Methodist coming in at No. 2.
The Skidmore golf team competed in four tournaments throughout the months of September and October, coming away with two wins. The team's first-place finishes came at the Tim Brown Invitational, on their home course, and at the Liberty League Championship qualifying tournament.
The team also finished second out of 25 at the Middlebury Duke Nelson Invite and then ventured down to Florida where they finished a respectable ninth out of 18 at the GolfWeek Invite. Anthony DiLisio '13, with three top-five finishes, and John McCarthy '13, with three top-ten finishes, have helped lead the charge for the Thoroughbreds. For more information, click here.
