Golf Finishes Fall Season with Tournament Win
The Skidmore golf team won their final tournament of the fall in dramatic fashion last weekend at the Manhattanville Fall Classic. Led by Mitchell Campbell, who claimed the tournament's individual title, the Thoroughbreds pulled out a narrow one-shot victory to win their second tournament of the year. The win leaves them feeling confident that they will continue in their winning ways once the spring season begins.
Until then, the golf team will take advantage of some time off from the season and tournaments. Throughout the winter, the team has access to indoor facilities where they can practice, so they will be as prepared as possible when the spring season rolls around. In addition, the boys will work hard in the gym to get stronger so they can play better and avoid injury in order to have the best chance at winning the Liberty League come April.
Overall, the team is happy with how well the fall season went, but still they understand that they have not yet reached the top of the mountain. As senior captain Mackenzie Nelson said, “We had a lot of success this fall with winning two tournaments. We played some really good golf and are beginning to establish ourselves as one of the best teams in the northeast. However, there is also a lot of room for improvement. Our goal for the spring is to develop some more consistency throughout our starting five and make a statement in the big national events we will play in.”
The Thoroughbred golfers are certainly ambitious, and therefore will never be satisfied. They hope that winning the two tournaments this fall marks only the beginning of their success.
