W&J CAPTURES 2008 PAC GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS
The 2008 PAC Golf Championships concluded on Monday-Tuesday, April 21-22 at Oak Tree Country Club in West Middlesex, Pa., with Washington & Jefferson College capturing both the men's & women's team titles. On the men's side, W&J fired a four-man total of 302-297-599 to top the field and earn the first-ever PAC automatic bid into the NCAA Division III Championships. Saint Vincent, while ineligible for the PAC title due to its NCAA Division III provisional status, fired the low men's team score in the eight-round championship series with 2448, five strokes ahead of W&J. Medalist honors went to Brad Cieslinski of W&J, who edged Tyler Fitch of Grove City in a one-hole playoff for the title. The women's standings saw W&J post a 357-350-707 to easily outdistance second place Westminster. W&J sophomore Leslie Walker earned medalist honors for the second consecutive year, while President first-year head coach Blake Tyson was named 2008 PAC Men's & Women's Golf Coach of the Year.
