Three Honored by Ivy League in Men's Golf

PHILADELPHIA - The Ivy League has announced its postseason honors for the 2010 men's golf season, and Penn was well represented.

Freshman Colin St. Maxens was named the Ivy League Rookie of the Year by the league's eight head coaches. St. Maxens enjoyed a stellar first year, picking up four top-10 finishes and being Penn's low scorer at three different tournaments. He had a 74.3 stroke average over 19 tournament rounds -- second lowest on the team -- and shot a school-record 65 at the Philadelphia Cricket Club this fall in the Big 4 Championship. St. Maxens placed 22nd overall at the Ivy Championships this past weekend

The All-Ivy teams are based on finish at the Ivy League Championships; the top five and ties are first-team honorees, while the second five and ties are second team. This year, sophomore Scotty Williams -- who was medalist at this year's event -- earned first team while senior Chance Pipitone earned second-team recognition. Williams shot 72-69-73--214 at the par-70 Baltusrol course this weekend and tied Columbia's Clark Granum for first place in the 40-player field. Williams then defeated Granum on the first playoff hole to become Penn's second medalist at the Championships in three years. Pipitone, meanwhile, carded 76-74-75--225 to tie for seventh place overall.

The All-Ivy first team featured five players from five different institutions, while the second team had seven players representing six different schools. Yale's Tom McCarthy was voted the Ivy League Player of the Year by the head coaches.
