RESULTS

When and Where: October 6, 2019 – Endicott, N.Y. (En-Joie Golf Club – Par 72)
Score:  Southern New Hampshire University – 293 (2nd/10)

Senior Garret Olivar (Manchester, N.H.) fired a 1-under par 71 on Sunday and the Southern New Hampshire University men's golf team finished second at the 2019 Northeast-10 Championship, which was held at the En-Joie Golf Club in Endicott, New York. The championship was shortened to a one-day, 18-hole event after inclement weather forced the cancelation of Monday's final round.

INDIVIDUAL SCORERS

  • Olivar's round of 71 was good for a tie for third place, and earned him a spot on the All-Championship Team.   
  • Sophomore Matt Conti (Walpole, Mass.) turned in a one over-par 73 on Sunday to finish in a tie for ninth place.
  • Freshman Jeff Liss (Port St. Lucie, Fla.) shot a 74 to tie for 13th. 
  • Senior Ryan Anderson (Beverly, Mass.) and freshman Jared Mscisz (Danvers, Mass.) rounded out the Southern New Hampshire contingent with a 75 and 78, respectively.

  • Assumpton College (292) captured the team title over the Penmen by one shot. Le Moyne College checked in one stroke behind Southern New Hampshire, while Franklin Pierce University, College of Saint Rose and Saint Michael's College tied for fourth with a 298.
  • Matt Johnson and Brendan Locke, both of Saint Michael's College, turned in the best rounds of the championship, with a 68 and 70 respectively. 
  • Southern New Hampshire has now finished in the top-two four times in the past five Northeast-10 Men's Golf Championships. The Penmen captured team titles in 2015 and 2018, and have been runners-up in 2016 and 2019 – both times by one shot.
