West Middlesex, PA – After a two day tournament at the Oak Tree Country Club, the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Golf Championship wrapped up on Monday, October 11 with the team championship being awarded to Penn State Altoona. Phil Keilman from Mount Aloysius College shot a tournament low 75 on day-two to capture the individual medalist.

Altoona lead both days with low scores (316, 322) on their way to a 638 finish giving them their fourth title in five years. Medaille College tied Altoona’s day two score, but the Mavericks shot a 334 on day one which put them too far back to be competing for the crown.
Altoona’s Chris Perry held a one stroke led after day one (75) but dropped to 82 on day two removing him from contention for the leader board. La Roche’s Mike Sliman finished in the number two slot both days and was overtaken by Keilman in the final round losing by 2 strokes. Keilman was tied for 6th place on day one (79) before his 75 shot him into first place to take away the individual championship.
Hilbert’s squad finished in ninth place after shooting a combined 785 over the two day tournament. Junior John Nowak (Hamburg, NY/Frontier) finished tied for 25th with a 178 score (86, 92). Junior Jim Pernick (Tonawanda, NY/St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute) improved over the two days as he dropped 23 strokes from day one (113) to 90 on day two. He dropped from 44 to 39th place but his overall score for the tournament tied his fellow team mate Michael Werner (203). Werner (Orchard Park, NY/Orchard Park) was consistent in the two days shooting a 100 and then a 103. Hilbert’s final golfer to count in the scoring was freshman Joe Pernick (Tonawanda, NY/St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute) who shot 101, and 111 for 41st place. Junior Patrick Brooks (Orchard Park, NY/Orchard Park) played the course both days (106/107), but his 5th place team finish did not count towards the overall team score.
