The men's golf team ended its season on a disappointing note last weekend with a last-place finish at the Colby-Bates-Bowdoin (CBB) Championship. Colby ultimately took home the trophy with a score of 402, as the Polar Bears trailed behind with a 419. Captain Johnny Bohorquez '13 placed fourth overall.

This loss followed Bowdoin's ninth-place finish at the NESCAC Championship qualifier a week earlier. The team's score of 637 placed it 367 strokes out of the fourth place cut-off and the invitation to the spring championship.

"Our season ended on a down note with a loss at CBBs and one bad round at NESCACs," said Head Coach Tomas Fortson. "We have a very young team and this is all part of the learning process. Danny Greene '14 had a great second round at NESCACs, breaking 80 [with a score of 77] for the first time in competition."

The team was led by Bobby Kaminski 14, who finished 20th in the tournament with a score of 153 (79-74) and Bohorquez, who was 27th with a score of 156 (76-80). The Polar Bears will not compete in the spring, but they will use the time they have to gear up for next season.

"We were very disappointed with our performance at the first day of NESCACs. The course was playing very easy and we didn't take advantage of it like many other teams did," said Bohorquez. "We played better as a team on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to get us the finish we wanted."

That being said, Bohorquez considers the season a successful one overall.

"Some of our less-experienced players got a lot of competitive play, and I think that experience will foster further improvement for next year," he said.

"With that in mind, along with the fact we are not graduating any players this year, I have high hopes for next season," said Bohorquez.
