Golf—2009-10 Season Overview
2010 Season Outlook
The golf team may have made more improvement than any other fall squad a year ago and have a number of returners to the 2010 roster for head coach Jim Tortorella.
Harry Smith '12, who is also the number one men's squash player at Colby, came out for golf last year and earned All-NESCAC second team honors after taking 10th place at the league tourney. He was just the third Colby golfer since 2000 to earn all-conference honors.
Tripp Huber '13 had the second-best score at the NESCAC league qualifier. Tom Lampert '12 and Taggie Martin '13 also were top five golfers for the Mules.
Colby, after many years of finishing last at the NESCAC qualifier, took sixth place in 2009 out of 11 teams. The Mules also won the Colby Invitational and the Colby Classic.
2009 Season Outlook
The Colby College co-ed golf team got the 2009 season off to a solid start with two victories at the Waterville Country Club.
The Mules, under head coach Jim Tortorella, won the Colby Invitational
and the Colby Classic.
Captains Hans Noering '10 and Sam Rouleau '10 join Maureen Dunn '10 as the only seniors on the squad. Noering and Rouleau were both part of the Colby blue squad which won both tourneys. The seniors lead a team where eight of the 13 players are sophomores or younger.
Tripp Huber '13, Harry Smith '12, and Taggie Martin '13 were the other players on the winning Colby blue squad at the invitational Saturday. Tom Lampert '12 joined those five players to help the blue team win the Colby Classic the next day.
Lampert, Pete Gabranski '13, John Moriarty '11, Sanjay Bahl '12, and Peter Zink '11 were on the Colby white team at the invitational and finished in second place out of six teams.
Charlie Diamond '12 returns from last year's squad and Tracey Tomlinson '12 is a newcomer.
