The Drew University women’s golf team opened its 2022 spring season on March 20 by earning a team-record of 338 on the first day of The Ruckus, held at the Williamsburg National Golf Club.
The Rangers sliced seven strokes from the previous program standard, most recently this past September in the team’s season-opening round at the Elizabethtown Invitational. Drew finds itself in second place among three teams, trailing York (Pa.) College (313) but leading Arcadia University (368).
Kayla Diaz (’24) picked up where she left off following an outstanding fall, leading the Rangers with a 4-over 75. She was just one stroke behind leader Jordan Koller of York.
Nyah Sanders (’24) was the Rangers’ second-best finisher on Saturday, March 19, carding an 85. She is in sixth place in the field of 18. Cassidy Conklin (’22), who has 88 and tied for eighth and Natalie Stilo (’22) who has 90 in 10th rounded out the team scoring while Arielle Detorres (’25) with 120 in 17th was also in action.
Kayla Diaz (’24) broke one school record and tied another while capturing medalist honors at The Ruckus. This was the fourth consecutive individual title won by Diaz dating back to the fall. Diaz took four strokes off the previous school record for best 36-hole score set by Lucy Lamb (‘21) at the 2019 Landmark Conference Championships. With her 73 on Sunday, which included 13 pars and a pair of birdies, Diaz also tied Lamb’s team record for the lowest 18-hole round.
Lucas Artigliere (’22) shot a 78 to lead the Drew University men’s golf team in its spring opener on Saturday, March 19 at The Ruckus.
As a team, the Rangers carded a 325 and are in fifth place among 12 teams. McDaniel College leads the way with a 298 and is followed by Stevens (311), Penn State Altoona (312), and Bridgewater (319).
Artigliere is currently tied for 15th in the field of 63, which is led by McDaniel’s Chuck Csejka (70). Matvey Pangan (’24) is second for the Rangers with an 80 (T-25th) while Myles Cherry (’24) is tied for 29th with an 82. Mike Ford (’25) completed the team scoring with an 85 while Brandon Talaska (’22) was also in action, shooting an 89.
The golf team will continue its schedule on April 4-5, when both teams will return to the Williamsburg Golf Club for the Historic Triangle Invitational.
