Yellowjackets Tee Up for Spring Season

With four top-five finishes in five outings last fall, the men’s golf team heads into the NCAA Division III spring season with a Top 25 ranking, according to the national computer rating service Golfstat.

The Yellowjackets averaged a 302.1 team score in five fall tournaments in the first half of the 2005–06 season. Head-to-head, Rochester was 44–16–1 against all schools and 36–11 against Division III opponents.

Stephen Goodridge ’08, the 2005 Division III Freshman of the Year, led the team with a 72.4 average.
Coach Rich Johnson says Rochester’s scoring average and consistency provide encouraging signs for the spring, when the team will try for a third straight NCAA championship appearance.

The spring season opens April 1 and 2 with the Peter C. Rossin Memorial Classic hosted by Washington & Jefferson.
