Springfield, Mass. - October 1, 2018 - Following an impressive weekend, Springfield College's Jake Raichle (Bethlehem, N.H.) was tabbed the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) Golfer of the Week.
Thanks to his efforts on the course, Springfield captured the NECC Golf Championship on Sunday at Wachusett Country Club. It marked the third time in program history, and first since 2012, that the Pride earned the championship hardware.
A Sport Management major, Raichle was tabbed the NECC Golfer of the Year at the conclusion of the 36-hole event after he produced back-to-back rounds of 74 to finish +4 for the championship. Raichle totaled seven birdies over the weekend and played the par 4's at +2, both of which were the best marks in the championship field.
