BU golf beaten in playoff for America East Championship
Hartford wins title on first sudden-death hole

Final Results

APALACHIN, N.Y. - Binghamton University golf came up just shy in its bid for a third America East Championship in the last five years, losing to Hartford in sudden death Sunday at The Links at Hiawatha Landing. The two teams came in at 608, with the Hawks (306-302) making up a nine-stroke deficit from Saturday's opening round. Hartford then claimed the team title on the first playoff hole. Binghamton (297-311) was second and Boston University was third at 656.

Senior Aaron Ungvarsky (Wilmington, Mass.) capped his collegiate career in style, winning medalist honors after shooting 73-70=143. Ungvarsky, whose 2-under final round featured a hole-in-one on No. 6, finished four strokes ahead of runnerup A.J. Oleksak of Hartford. Ungvarsky used a six-iron to ace the 182-yard par-3 hole - recording the first hole-in-one of his career.

Junior Zach Vinal (Syracuse, N.Y.) placed fourth (70-82=152), senior Jeff Wolniewicz (West Seneca, N.Y.) was fifth (77-78=155), senior Thomas Hackett (Binghamton, N.Y.) placed eighth (77-81=158) and sophomore J.J. Shearer (Binghamton, N.Y.) tied for 11th (82-83=165).
