Jeffrey Schaller led Bronxville's Concordia Clippers golf team with an opening-round score of 75, tied for the overall lead, and the team placed third after the two-day Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Championship Tournament Wednesday at the Whitemarsh Valley Country Club.
After finishing the opening round seven strokes behind the leader, Concordia ended day two with another solid round to finish in third place overall, 15 strokes off the lead.
Schaller shot a 79 in the second round to finish with a 154 and a top-five finish in the field of 55 golfers. Sam Deitte finished the tournament with a top 10 finish as he shot an 80 in the first round and rebounded to shoot a 75 for a 155.
Eutimio Fernandez-Meade tied for 12th with a 160 while Kyle Grandilli shot a 161 as Concordia placed four of their five players in the top 15. Wilmington College (De.), the champion of the tournament, was the only team to also place four players in the top 15 in scoring. Will Deitte shot a two-day total of 175 to round out the teams scores.
Prior to the opening round, the CACC held the annual golf banquet to award the top players in the conference based on the GolfStat ratings. Sophomore Sam Deitte was one of 10 players to be chosen to the All-CACC team.
The Clippers host the Concordia Classic April 23-24 at the Hampshire Country Club in Mamaroneck. The tournament will be the last regular season event as the Clippers look to receive an at-large bid to the NCAA Regional Tournament this May.
