Wolniewicz, Ungvarsky, Vinal and Crawford honored as all-region

VESTAL, N.Y. - After leading the team to its third NCAA tournament berth in the last five years, four Binghamton University golfers have been selected to the New England all-star teams.

Juniors Jeff Wolniewicz (West Seneca, N.Y.) and Aaron Ungvarsky (Wilmington, Mass.) and sophomore Zach Vinal (Syracuse, N.Y.) were named to the second team and senior Kevin Crawford (Lockport, N.Y.) was named honorable mention. All four were repeat selections from a year ago.

Wolniewicz (75.4) and Ungvarsky (75.9) went 1-2 in scoring for Binghamton in 2005-06. Wolniewicz, who also received PING all-region honors this spring, produced five top-10 tournament finishes, including a runner-up performance at the New England Championship (68-73). Ungvarsky was the most steady contributor on the team, with 29-of-30 countable rounds in tournament play. He four top-10 finishes, highlighted by a runnerup finish at the fall St. Bonaventure Keenanm Invitational (69-73).

Vinal earned second team honors for the second straight year. He held down a 76.7 scoring average and collected five top-10 tournament finishes. Vinal placed second at the Rhode Island Invitational (74-75) and was eighth at the Yale Spring Opener.

Crawford, who joined Wolniewicz as a PING all-region selection, had three top-10 tournament finishes and was BU's low man at the 54-hole NCAA East Regional (77-76-76). Crawford also tied for fourth among 60 golfers at the Rhode Island Invitational.

Under head coach Nick Lasky's tutelage, the Bearcats dethroned Rhode Island as New England Champions and sealed their NCAA bid with a team title at the Rhode Island Invitational two weeks later. Binghamton also placed second at the prestigious Yale MacDonald Cup in the fall.
