Golfers Clinch Conference Title With Final Regular-Season Win

The Pennsylvania College of Technology golf team finished its regular-season matches Tuesday with a victory at the Links at Spring Church in Apollo. The team shot a total of 314, which was 21 strokes better than the closest competitor: Penn State New Kensington. The score allowed the golf team to secure first place in the Western Division of the PSU Athletic Conference.

Five of Penn College’s golfers finished in the top seven of all the competitors. The team was led by senior Shaun McQuay, of Watsontown, who was medalist with a 2-over-par 74. He was followed by junior Ryan Nornhold, of Enola, at 78; and sophomore Matt Winder, of Montgomery, who fired an 81 along with freshman Dean Bell, of Schwenksville. Freshman Eric Schall, of Jersey Shore, shot an 82; and junior Doug Wagner, of Huntington Mills, shot a 91.

Coach Chet Schuman noted it was great to see some of the players shoot low rounds at the end of the season, adding that Nornhold, Bell and Schall shot very well for being on the course for the first time.

“The course was a tight course with some blind shots into greens and you needed to place the ball real well in order to score,” Schuman said. “It was a very warm day in the 90s and not knowing the course made it a real challenge for these young golfers … and they rose to the challenge. PSU is a very competitive team and to go to their home course and have us play well is a real testimony to our golfers.”

The team will finish the season when it travels to Penn State University for a two-day tournament (Oct. 10-11)at which theWildcatswill play against the remaining Penn State teams from the eastern division.
