Chautauqua, NY – Freshman Nick Paschetto traveled to New York this past week to compete in the NJCAA Division III Men's Golf National Championship. There was a total of 85 golfers competing and he finished in third place after shooting 1-under par (71) in the final round. His four-day total was 302.
After consistent rounds of 76, 77 and 79, Pacshetto was tied for 6th place entering Friday's final round. Paschetto's 71 was the low score of the final round and vaulted him into 3rd place finish earning First Team All-American honors.
"Nick had an amazing week of golf. He is a very polished tournament player and his calm demeanor on the course paid dividends during the variety of weather and course conditions during the week," commented Head Coach Molly McNamara. "Nick is a very independent, tournament savvy player and watching him during the week has been a highlight of my coaching career. After his play during his first three rounds, I knew he was due a low round and it was a fun round to have an up close view of. We are all very proud of Nick's accomplishment and cannot wait to see what the future holds for him."
