The beautiful Taconic Golf Course in Williamstown, Mass. has seen such prestigious events like the 1996 U.S. Senior Amateur and two NCAA championships, but this past weekend it played host to the Williams Invitational.The Castleton men’s team finished 11th in an 18 team pack, shooting a two-day total of 643 (328, 308).
Senior Eric Slosek paced the Spartans with a 155, good enough for a tie for 23rd. Slosek shot two over par (73) on the first day for sixth on the leader board.
“[Slosek] shot two-over on a very difficult course,” said junior Cam Wood listing the events that have taken place on the course.
Wood said the team was disappointed with the 11th place finish.
“We finished a couple spots in front [of last year],” said Wood. “After [Slosek] it was all downhill for us.”
Freshman Cody Ball had a good performance and finished in a tie for 27th after shooting a 157 (77, 80).
Castleton travels to Stowe, Mass. on Oct. 2 and Oct. 3 for the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championship.
“Last year we came in third in the ECAC’s,” said Wood. “We’re looking to do well there.”
Wood said the team is slowly progressing, and they were looking to improve for the North Atlantic Conference championship and get the bid to enter the National Tournament.

But in the shadows, there are people who work around these institutions so that people can continue to further their education successfully in a pleasant setting.

I remember distinctly the first time I was asked what I wanted to go to college for. My 6th grade science teacher posed it to our class (I guess start ‘em young, right?), and of course I had no idea. Probably for a lot of the same reasons as most of my young peers, but […]
I once was a student mentor for Castleton University. Whether it was doing tours for potential new students on accepted students’ day, or texting incoming students in the months leading up to their matriculation, I thoroughly enjoyed passing on my thoughts on why Castleton University was the right choice. I always told them the same […]
Jay Mullen and Austin Crosier sat next to each other, each holding a notebook. Across the room was one of New York’s candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives, waiting for one of the recent Castleton University graduates to ask the first question. Not long ago, these two reporters sat together in the media […]
