Eger shot a 149 (+7 over par) for a 70 first round and a 79 second round score despite extremely windy conditions. Eger led the Beavers to their first-ever NECC Championship title in their first season of competition.
ROOKIE OF THE WEEK -For the second straight week, Elms College freshman Dave Pianki (West Suffield, Conn.) earned rookie honors. Pianki earned medalist honors in the Mitchell Tri-Match with a one round 82, while breaking the top ten to make the 2009 NECC All-Conference team tying for 8th place with two other freshmen. Despite the three way tie for Rookie of the Year honors, Pianki was one stroke shy of the honors shooting a five on the 6th hole. He shot 79-84=163 at the 2009 NECC Men's Golf Championships.
