Orange Golfers Compete at National Tournament

Monday, June 13th, 2016

CHAUTAUQUA, N.Y. - Coach Joe Detz had a feeling that it might be a good week on the links for the Colts. SUNY Orange returned two golfers to the NJCAA Division III Golf Championships this year. Sophomore's Marcus Cigna and Dan Pavlu both knew the course well from the previous year and it showed. The pair of Orange golfers played well. Marcus Cigna shot in the 70's all four rounds and was in contention the entire week to medal. His low round was an even par 72 on the third day which placed him firmly in contention for All American status. Cigna's 306 total for the four days was 18 over par and placed him alone in 15th place, qualifying him for All American status. Dan Pavlu shot in the 80's the first two days, but showed a lot of toughness by bouncing back with a pair of 79's to finish the week. Pavlu's performance put him just outside the top 50.

It was a great season for these two golfers as they both made the All Mid-Hudson Conference Team and the All Region XV Team while Marcus was also the Mid-Hudson Conference Player of the Year. Congratulations on a great season!
