The York College men’s golf squad made history on April 25 as they won the Middle Atlantic Conference Commonwealth title at Iron Valley Country Club.
They became the first York College program to earn a Commonwealth crown as the Spartans are in their first year in the league. Not only did the Spartans win the team title, but sophomore Riley Rohlfs captured the individual title, and along with that, the Player of the Year award in addition to the MAC Commonwealth Rookie of the Year honor. Head Coach David Boslough earned the league’s Coach of the Year award, his second conference men’s golf Coach of the Year honoree.
The Spartans will now participate in the NCAA Division III Men’s National Championship tournament in Wheeling, West Virginia, May 11-14. It’s the sixth NCAA tournament appearance for the Spartans.
The York College women’s golf squad also made history when they captured their first MAC Championship tournament as they came back to beat Stevenson in an exciting final round at Golden Oaks Country Club on May 2.
The Spartans finished the tournament with a two-day total of 647, beating Stevenson by eight shots as the Mustangs finished the tournament with a score of 655. The championship and the NCAA tournament automatic bid that goes along with it comes in the Spartans’ fourth year as a varsity program.
Not only did the Green and White capture the team championship, but sophomore Natalie Robson won the individual title as she was named the MAC Player of the Year and the Rookie of the Year. Robson finished with a two-day total of 153 and is the first Spartan in school history to earn the conference Player of the Year honor while she is the second Spartan to earn Rookie of the Year. Robson’s teammate Anna Moore was the CAC Rookie of the Year in 2019 for the champion Spartans.
Head Coach David Boslough earned the MAC Coach of the Year as he is now a two-time women’s golf conference Coach of the Year.
