Emory Golf Looks To Defend Title At UAA Championships

Emory Golf Looks To Defend Title At UAA Championships

After opening its spring season at The Club of Savannah Harbor Classic, the No. 1-ranked Emory golf team turns its attention to this weekend's (Mar. 9-10) University Athletic Association Championships. Hosting the event will be the Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast, Florida.

For the fourth straight year, the Championships will feature a match-play format with top-seeded Emory taking on No. 4 seed Rochester on the opening day, while second-seeded Carnegie Mellon squares off with No. 3 seed New York University.  The winners advance to Sunday's title match with the losing teams competing for third and fourth place.

Emory enters this year's action as the three-time defending champ, registering a 3.5-1.5 decision over Carnegie Mellon in the 2018 Championships.  The graduated Keenan Hickton was named the Outstanding Player of the Championships while Matt Organisak garnered a spot on the Championships All-Tournament Team.

Emory ended the Savannah Harbor Classic tied for fourth place out of 18 teams, posting a 36-hole score of 598 (305-293).  Sam Galloway (75-73) and Eric Yiu (77-71) paced the Emory effort with scores of four-over par 148 that tied for 13th place in the 90-player field.
