Amherst's Trip Wray Named Second Team All-NESCAC
First-Year Trip Wray was named
to the All-NESCAC Second Team.
Amherst first-year Trip Wray (Walpole, MA) was the lone Lord Jeff to grab honors, as he was selected to the Second Team after finishing tied for ninth place at the tournament.
The Lord Jeffs needed to place fourth or better to advance to the first-ever conference championship round in April, but finished the two-day event in seventh place. Trinity College finished in first place, earning the right to host the championship round this spring.
Wray was a standout for Amherst last weekend, as he was the only Lord Jeff to place in the top 20. His 36-hole total of 153 was a season, and collegiate, low for the first-year, and dropped his scoring average down to just above 6-over par.
Player of the Year honors went to Josh Grossman from Trinity, while Brad Roche of Hamilton took Rookie of the Year honors after being named First Team All-Conference. Bill Detrick of Trinity was named Coach of the Year, as elected by his peers.
Wray and Amherst will have to wait until later in the month to hit the links again, as the next tournament for the team is the NEIGA Championships in Hyannis, held Oct. 21-23.
