Three men's golfers on 2014 all-NESCAC team
Three Hamilton College men's golfers earned spots on the 2014 NESCAC All-Conference Team based on their performance at the NESCAC Golf Championship Qualifier held at The Skenandoa Golf Club on Sept. 27 and 28.
Riley Burgess '18 (Woodside, Calif./Menlo School) and Joe Tigani '18 (Hockessin, Del./Tatnall School) were two of six golfers that made the first team. Mac Pivirotto '15 (New Canaan, Conn./St. Luke's School) was one of eight on the second team and helped lead the Continentals to second place out of 10 teams in the NESCAC qualifier.
Burgess and Tigani tied for fifth place out of 49 golfers with 36-hole scores of 148. Tigani fired a 1-under-par 71 on Sunday for his best round this season and Burgess carded a season-best 73 on Saturday.
Pivirotto posted a 74 in the final round and tied for ninth place with a 151. Pivirotto earned a spot on the 2012 NESCAC All-Conference Team for finishing in sixth place at that year's qualifier.
Hamilton advanced to the 2015 NESCAC Golf Championship on April 25 and 26. Middlebury College will host the event on its campus at Ralph Myhre Golf Course. The Continentals qualified for the championship for the sixth time in eight years.
