Lake Buena Vista, FL – Junior Mike Winter and freshman Jeffrey Peters earned spots on the All-MAAC team after both golfers finished in the top-10 of the field at the 2018 MAAC Men's Golf Championship. The Saint Peter's men's golf team ended the tournament with a seventh-place finish.

 

"Mike and Jeff played well all season and that continued this weekend," said head coach Nick Dilio.

 

Winter, ended the three-round championship with a 221 card and third-place finish after shooting a final round score of 72. Peters concluded the tournament with a card of 225, good for an eighth-place tie with Canisius' David Hanes and Iona's Paolo Matti. This marked the fourth time that the Peacocks have placed at least two golfers on the All-MAAC team, also doing it in 2017, 2015, and 2014. Winter became the fourth golfer in program history to be named to the All-MAAC team multiple times, joining Nick Dilio (2014, 2015, and 2016), and Brian Grubbs and Eric Edmunds (2014 and 2015). Siena's Michael Christifulli claimed the individual title after shooting a 218 over the three rounds.

 

Rounding out the tournament for the Peacocks were David Powers (238), Michael Stewart (239), and Stanley Garrant (243).

 

The Peacocks failed to repeat as team champions, finishing the three-day tournament with a card of 310-303-307=920 placing them in seventh. The Iona College Gaels rallied back from second place to claim the MAAC championship, recording an 895 total en route to the programs fourth MAAC crown.

 

"We struggled again to make enough birdies, and had too many big numbers," added Dilio. "It was not the way we wanted to finish this season. But we aren't graduating any of our players, so hopefully we can take this week as a learning experience and use it for next year."

 

The MAAC All-Academic team was also announced, with the Peacocks placing three student-athletes on the team. Jose Cardona, Garrant, and Powers each earned a spot on the team by virtue of owning a cumulative grade point average above 3.20 on a 4.0 scale.
