Both the women’s and men’s teams had banner seasons taking home silver and bronze medals respectively at the ACAC conference championships in early October. This meant a birth at the CCAA National Championships in Oshawa, Ontario for both squads, marking a first in the history of the golf program.
On the women’s side, the torch was carried by two first year players in Danielle Blackmer and Catherine Proud. The tandem managed to play steady all season long, putting together a string of three consecutive 2nd place finishes. Their steady play did not go unnoticed; on week three of the season they cracked the CCAA Top Ten rankings as a solid 7th in the country. They gained plenty of experience at the National Championships and with both players eligible to return next season, it remains to be seen what is in store for the team in 2013.
The men’s team got off to a slow start; however they managed to get stronger each week as the season progressed. The team relied heavily upon the experience and patience of a veteran laden lineup consisting of Zach Zubrecki, Mitch Kurtz, Brett Griscowsky and Landon Desharnais, all of whom played on the squad last season. The 8-man squad was rounded out by a strong supporting cast of newcomers in Matt Taylor, Zach Hay, Jesse Florkowski, and Mason Rabinovitch. Both Rabinovitch and Florkowski saw tons of action as first year players and were looked upon to contribute each week. Rabinovitch provided steady play all season long, while Florkowski – who started as the teams 6th ranked player – steadily gained confidence and moved his way up to take on the role as the teams 1st ranked player heading into the National Championship at season’s end. With a solid season of play and experience at the national level under their belts, the team finished off the season on a high note and many players are already looking forward to the 2013 campaign.
