Mike McCarthy

Scoreboard: 7th of 7, Patriot League Championship, Hamilton, N.Y., April 24-25
Schedule: Season has completed. 

  • The Holy Cross men's golf team rounded out its 2009-2010 campaign with a seventh place finish at the 2010 Patriot League Championship, held at the Seven Oaks Country Club in Hamilton, N.Y. Lafayette won the 2010 title for the first time in school history riding an individual title performance from sophomore Rob Robertson and placing two others players in the top six of the field
  • The Crusaders had two players finish in the top-10 individually, as freshman Steve Zychowski (Mendham, N.J.) was named to the first team All-Patriot League for his fourth place finish. He led the team with a three-round score of 224, his best performance of the spring. Zychowski was the team's best overall performer twice this season, as he also led the team with a season-best 221 at the MacDonald Cup back in October. Zychowski's honor was the first time a Holy Cross player has been named to the first team All-Patriot League since Matt Czarnecki won the tournament outright in 2007.
  • Classmate Michael McCarthy (Tolland, Conn.) earned second team All-Patriot League honors after he tied for 10th place in the Patriot League Championship. He tallied a final three-round score of 229, placing amongst seven other league players. His three-day total was his second-best performance in a three-round tournament this season, as he marked a career-best 225 at the George Washington Invitational earlier. McCarthy ends his freshman campaign as the team's top performer in four total events, the most of any performer on the 2009-2010 Holy Cross roster. He also ends the season with the team's lowest stroke average (76.2) and tied for the most rounds played with 20.
  • The Holy Cross men's golf team finished its campaign with four top-five team finishes, three coming in the fall portion of the schedule. Junior Colin Andrade (Assonet, Mass.) won one individual title for the team, winning the Lou Flumere Invitational held in early April. Andrade also had the team's lowest round of the season, a career-low 68 at the New England Championships. He finished the season third on the team in stroke average (77.4).
