Hamilton College has four golfers on the 2021 NESCAC Women’s Golf All-Conference Team and Head Coach Lauren Cupp ’07 was selected the NESCAC Coach of the Year.
Emily Moy ’22 (Cohasset, Mass./Cohasset High School) earned a spot on the first team and Maddie Hong '23 (Glastonbury, Conn./Loomis Chaffee School), Allie LeeHoffman ’23 (McLean, Va./Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School [D.C.]) and Sofia Weinstein ’24 (Dallas, Texas/The Episcopal School of Dallas) made the second team. The all-conference honors are the first for all four student-athletes.
Cupp is the conference’s coach of the year for the first time. She guided Hamilton to third place in the combined team standings for the NESCAC title this spring — the team’s best finish in the history of the event. On April 30 the Continentals appeared in the Women’s Golf Coaches Association Division III Top 25 poll for the first time at No. 20. The Hamilton women ended up third in the final NCAA East Region rankings posted on May 3.
The 36-hole combined scores for each golfer from the NESCAC #1 and NESCAC #2 events were used to determine the all-conference team. The first team comprised the top five golfers and ties with the lowest 36-hole totals. The next five lowest 36-hole scores, including ties, made the second team.
Moy finished the two rounds at 160 after carding a pair of 80s. Lee Hoffman ended up at 162 including a 78 in the first round, and both Hong and Weinstein were at 166 for the 36 holes.
