Reigning NESCAC Champion Trinity Men's Golf Opens 2018-19 Campaign With Annual Detrick Invitational

Hartford, Conn. - The Trinity College golf team, fresh off its second New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) crown and trip to the NCAA Division III Championship Tournament in the spring, should be more than ready for a repeat performance in 2018-19 with five accomplished veterans still in the fold.  Under the direction of 2018 NESCAC Coach of the Year Matt Greason (6th season), the Bantams open with the annual Bill Detrick Invitational on September 8 and 9 at Indian Hill Country Club in Newington.  The Detrick Invitational honors the memory of legendary Trinity golf coach and Central Connecticut State University men's basketball coach Bill Detrick, who passed away a few years ago.  Trinity will play several more tournaments in September before beginning its conference title defense in the NESCAC Qualifying Tournament at the end of semester at Wesleyan, and can host the championship tournament in the spring with a win in the qualifier.  Senior tri-captains Jack Junge (Lincolnshire, Ill.), Taylor Kay-Green (Needham, Mass.), and Will Rosenfield (Baltimore, Md.) will lead the charge as captains.

Rosenfield returns for one more year to cap off a fantastic career on the links that has included back-to-back All-American honors and the 2018 NESCAC Player of the Year award.  Kay Green has collected all-league honors twice in his first three seasons, while Junge was an All-American as a rookie and an All-NESCAC selection as a sophomore.  Fellow senior Joseph Ladd (San Francisco, Calif.) has been a starter in the Bantam lineup and returns from a semester abroad to bolster the lineup, while classmates Nick Branchina (Summit, N.J.), Ace Ensign (Acton,Mass.), Owen McGowan (Norwalk, Conn.) provide quality depth.  Junior Cameron Chottiner (Houston, Texas) has emerged as a regular in the lineup, and sophomore Ricardo Paes Leme (Lake Villa, Ill.) showed promise as a rookie last season.
