NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- The Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) has released its 2016 All-CACC Men's Golf All-Conference Team and major award winners.
Concordia College sophomore Chartpetch Bangpetch (Chonburi, Thailand) and junior Juan Roa (Cali, Colombia) were named to the team after their impressive performances this regular season while head coach Nicholas Osso was named the BSN Sports Coach of the Year.
The all-conference, player, and rookie of the year awards are determined from the current Golfstat rankings while the coach of the year is voted upon by the league's sports information directors.
Osso led the Clippers to an impressive 2016 campaign thus far as the program has finished in the top-3 within five of the nine tournaments they have participated in. Two of these were team victories as Concordia won the Philadelphia U. Tri-Match at The ACE Club in Lafayette Hill, Pa. in March and the Clippers just earned 1st at the Mike Bello Invitational at the Timber Banks Golf Club in Baldwinsville, N.Y. on Monday afternoon.
Bangpetch was also named to the 2015 All-CACC Men's Golf All-Conference Team in his freshman season as he has finished in the top-10 in four tournaments this academic year. Roa is fresh off an individual medalist at the Mike Bello Invitational as he also placed 2nd at the Charger Challenge in the fall and has five top-10 finishes this season. Seven of the 10 spots on the 2016 All-CACC Men's Golf All-Conference Team belonged to Wilmington (Del.) who also captured the CACC Player and Rookie of the Year Awards. Concordia will next participate in the CACC Championships which are set to begin on Tuesday, April 19th. The two-day event will take place at the Back Creek Golf Club in Middletown, Del. as the Clippers look to capture the program's first CACC Championship Title.
