MacAulay leads ACM at nationals

CUMBERLAND — SCOTTSBORO, Ala. — Following a dominating performance at the Pittsburgh National Golf Club to win the NJCAA Division II Region XX championship, Allegany College of Maryland started strongly over the first round before stumbling in the final three to place 16th in a field of 18 teams at the Division II National Golf Championships at the Goose Pond Colony in Scottsboro, Ala.

Allegany finished the four-round championship with a score of 1,249, ahead of Independence (Kan.), which finished with a team score of 1,267. Lackawanna College (Pa.) played the first three rounds, but did not participate in the fourth and finished with an incomplete score.

Arizona’s South Mountain Community College was the only school to shoot in the 200s all four days and the only team to finish below par, ending 13 strokes under at 1,139. They beat second-place Walters State (Tenn.) by 32 strokes after the Senators posted a team score of 1,171.

Third place went to John A. Logan (Ill.) at 1,183, Kirkwood (Iowa) was fourth at 1,185 and Black Hawk (Ill.) shot a 1,188 for fifth.

The low individual score went to David Keenan of Parkland (Ill.), with an 8-under par 280 in four rounds. Champion South Mountain had three of the five lowest scores in Jake Argento, Ben Seward and Will Twitty all coming in at 3-under par.

Joe MacAulay had ACM’s best showing by shooting an 11-over 299 to tie for 35th. Jake Bond placed 87th with a 313, and Andrew Medovich was the only other Trojan to finish in the top 100, shooting a 319.
