Adam Fuchs '03
Induction Class of 2010
A native of Plainview, N.Y., Adam Fuchs played golf at Binghamton from 1999-03. He earned his bachelor's degree in management with a concentration in finance in 2003.
Fuchs was an elite student-athlete whose individual accomplishments and team impact spurred the golf team's meteoric rise among the top Division I programs in the Northeast. The two-time team captain graduated holding school records for lowest single-season scoring average (74.2), career average (74.7), tournament wins (10) and top-10 finishes (36).
Fuchs made an immediate impact as a freshman, leading the team to five tournament titles and a first Division II national ranking. He produced the lowest scoring average in 41 years of golf at the University and was the top-ranked player in the seven-state district.
As a sophomore, Fuchs and the Bearcats made national headlines by extending their win streak to an incredible seven tournaments - the longest of any NCAA program. The streak was chronicled in GolfWeek and helped earn Fuchs a spot in Sports Illustrated "Faces in the Crowd." One of his three medalist honors came at the prestigious Yale Invitational when he beat a field of 108 golfers, thanks in part to a second-round 67.
His junior year featured two more tournament crowns and ten top-10 finishes in 11 tournaments. In his final event of the spring, Fuchs captured the America East individual title in BU's Division I conference debut.
Fuchs punctuated his senior season by leading BU to an NCAA-best seven tournament wins and an inaugural NCAA Division I Championship berth. He repeated as both an all-region and All-America Scholar selection.
During his tenure, Binghamton won 22 tournaments and posted a remarkable win percentage of 85%.
He was named BU's "Athlete of the Year" as a freshman and as a bookend to his career, was honored with the John Bilos Award for achievement as a senior.
