Shniderman Nabs All-NESCAC Second Team Honors

Junior Adam Shniderman earned
Second Team All-NESCAC honors.

AMHERST, MA – Amherst junior Adam Shniderman (Ft. Lauderdale, FL) was named to the 2008 NESCAC Golf All-Conference Second Team this afternoon on the heels of his 11th-place finish at this past weekend's Championship Qualifier.

Shniderman is the third Amherst player in three years to grab the school’s lone honor, as sophomore Trip Wray (Walpole, MA) took Second Team honors in 2007, with Drew Russ (Maui, HI) grabbing First Team honors in 2006.

The NESCAC Golf All-Conference teams, selected based upon individual finish at the championship qualifier, had a total of eight players make the cut for the First Team while nine individuals garnered Second Team recognition.

Shniderman shot 77 at Middlebury’s par-71 Ralph Myhre Golf Course on Saturday to sit tied for 16th place after day one. He followed up his team-leading first round with a 76 on Sunday to vault into 11th place and land on the All-NESCAC Second Team.

Trinity’s Reid Longley took home Player of the Year honors for the second time in three years as the individual title winner, while Lee Smith of Bates took the Rookie of the Year title for finishing tied for 5th. Middlebury coach Bill Beaney was named Coach of the Year by his peers after leading the Panthers to the team title.
