San Antonio, TX—Binghamton held put on Wednesday, finishing in seventh place at the America Sky golf conference championships at the Dominion Country Club. With a 54-hole total of 900, the Bearcats fell 29 strokes behind the conference champions from Houston Baptist. Junior Bryce Edmister couldn’t hold on to a second round lead as he finished alone in 10th place with a score of 218 (+2).
BU shot a final round 299 (+11) at the par 72 course in San Antonio; remaining in 7th place the entire duration of the round. The Bearcats bested five schools at tournament’s end, but fell short of qualifying for the NCAA team bid which went to the Huskies of Houston Baptist. The Huskies trailed second round leaders Southern Utah by a mere stroke and rallied on Wednesday besting the conference newcomers by four strokes on the day and three overall. Individual medalist honors went to Sacramento State’s Jordan Weir. Weir stayed a stroke clear of Houston Baptist’s Preston Stanley with a 54-hole total of 213 (-3).
Edmister started the round off in shaky fashion, bogeying the second hole, birdying the third and recording a quadruple bogey on the par 4 fourth hole. The ‘quad’ knocked him from first place to seventh place. The junior went on to play the next 11 holes at one-under, including back-to-back birdies on 14 and 15. Unfortunately, the Webster, NY native was unable to knock down his score any further as he recorded bogeys on two of his last three holes. Despite a 77 on Wednesday, Edmister still racked up his sixth top-10 finish of the season. He finishes 2012-13 with a team-best scoring average of 74.5
Senior David Cellura turned in a good tournament to finish up a successful four-year career at Binghamton. Cellura shot a 78 on Wednesday, earning a 27th place finish at the Dominion, tying with three others at 226. He ends his career with four top-10 finishes and ten in the top-20.
Sophomore Jack Sedgewick had BU’s best round on Wednesday with a final round 73 (+1). Sedgewick made three birdies on the front on his way to a 35 (-1) and closed out his round with a birdie at the par 5 18th—a hole he recorded a four on two of the three days.
Freshman Jesse Perkins shot a 74 to finish tied in 43rd place with teammate Josh Holling. Perkins played brilliant golf, playing the Dominion at one under through 17. However, on the 18th hole, the freshman failed to stay in red numbers as he took an eight on the par 5 last hole.
The Bearcats had a terrific 2012-13 campaign, winning three events and placing in the top-5 in six. They finished with a team scoring average of 229.8—- good for fourth lowest in program history. Edmister led the way with six top-10 finishes, followed by four from sophomore Josh Holling who was the individual medalist at the Cornell Invite this past fall.
