Hartford, Conn. – The Trinity College golf team, coached by Matt Greason (5th season), looks to once again compete for the New England Small College Athletic Association (NESCAC) Championship Trophy in 2017-18 after a tie for second-place last year. The title quest, which stretches over both the fall and spring semesters, begins on September 9 and 10 as the Bantams host the annual Bill Detrick Invitational at Indian Hill Country Club in Newington. Trinity will also host the NESCAC Qualifying Tournament at Indian Hill on September 30 and October 1 where the top-four teams will advance to the league championship tourney in the spring.
After losing just one golfer to graduation, Trinity returns a host of talent that will look to vie for the conference crown, led by seniors Nate Choukas (Hanover, N.H.) and Kole Kelly (Belmont, Mass.). Trinity junior Will Rosenfield (Baltimore, Md.) was a Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA)/Ping Division III All-Northeast All-American Honorable Mention and a GCAA All-Northeast Regional linksman who will pace the program once again this season. Choukas, a two-time All-NESCAC performer and 2014 NESCAC Rookie of the Year, returns for his final season and looks to finish his career on a high note.
Juniors Jack Junge (Winnetka, Ill.) and Taylor Kay-Green (Needham, Mass.) were both 2016 Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA)/Ping Division III All-Northeast Region Team honorees, while Kelly, who shot 75 in both rounds of last year's NESCAC Championship and finished tied for sixth place, provides stability among Trinity's top six. Trinity junior Joseph Ladd (San Francisco, Calif.) and sophomore Cameron Chottiner (Houston, Texas) also have quality varsity experience.
