Golfer Hendrickson leads Northeast Region in scoring average; BU ranks third as team

Binghamton University senior golfer Keith Hendrickson (Syosset, N.Y.) has the lowest scoring average in the entire Northeast Region, according to the fall statistics released by Golfstat. As a team, the Bearcats rank third in the 16-team region, behind only Rhode Island and Yale.

Hendrickson played in seven tournaments and maintained a 73.46 average, ahead of Harvard's Chris Wu (73.88), Rhode Island's Kenneth Fahey (74.36) and the more than 100 individual. He earned top-20 finishes in every fall event, including five top-10 showings and a pair of first-place honors.

"Keith obviously had an outstanding fall season," head coach Nick Lasky said. "His ability to consistently put up low scores has helped the team achieve its high regional ranking. Keith is also working hard in the off-season in preparation for continued success in the spring. We'll need him to continue his outstanding play to achieve our goal of another NCAA regional berth."

Hendrickson captured medalist honors at the ECAC Championship after carding a two-under round of 70. He also tied for first at the Dartmouth Invitational (71-72) and was sixth at both the Cornell and Colgate tournaments. His scoring average is more than two strokes better than his mark from the 2002-03 season, and if he maintained a sub-74 average after the spring season, it would be the lowest in program history.

Other Binghamton individuals among the region's top-10 are senior Joe Kunz (Webster, N.Y.) and freshman Jeff Wolniewicz (West Seneca, N.Y.). Kunz ranks seventh with a 75.18 average, and Wolniewicz is ninth (75.38).

The Bearcats will resume their quest for the second-straight NCAA Division I tournament berth when the spring season opens in late March.
