PAINESVILLE, OH – The Penn State Altoona men’s golf team became the first team in the Lions’ short NCAA history to earn a bid in the national tournament by capturing the 2006 Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) Championship. The two-day event at Fowler’s Mill Golf Course concluded Sunday with the Hilbert College Hawks finishing 6th with a team score of 703.
Penn State Altoona’s Quinton Dziabo shot an 82 on Saturday before following up with a 78 Sunday to lead the pack of 49 golfers with a two-round best of 160. For his efforts, Dziabo was named AMCC Golfer of the Week. Lake Erie College’s Justin Brown carded a 162 to finish second overall, but lacked a supporting cast with an incomplete team.
Hilbert was paced by the strong play of Kyle Hiscock (Rochester, NY/Eastridge) who turned in a 166 for 36 holes. Hiscock shot an 85 Saturday, but rebounded with an 81 Sunday to tie him for 7th overall. Teammate Brian Rathke (Buffalo, NY/Bishop Timon) was the Hawks next top performer with a 170 after shooting 83 and 87 respectfully.
After Saturday’s round, the Hawks were tied for fifth place with the University of Pittsburg at Bradford with a score of 354. Sunday’s performance of 349 dropped the Hawks to seventh on the day and their sixth place finish was finalized after Medaille College finished with a 708.RESULTS
