Jeffs Close Regular Season with Second-Place Finish at Little Three Championships

FROM A WILLIAMS COLLEGE RELEASE

April 27, 2005

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA - The Amherst College men’s golf team wrapped up its regular-season slate with a second-place finish at the Little Three Championships, hosted by Williams College on Wednesday. Amherst junior David Litt (Bethesda, MD) and sophomore Andy Bruns (Eaton, OH) swept their singles matches, while senior captain Justin Sharaf (Danvers, MA) and rookie Jesse Corradi (Cold Spring, NY) teamed to win a pair of alternate-shot matches as the Jeffs topped Wesleyan University 11 ½-½, but fell to Williams 8-4.

Litt and Bruns were the only Jeffs to earn singles victories over Williams as Litt defeated Matthew Slovitt 2 & 1 in the No. 2 match, while Bruns downed Will Sirignano at No. 4 in similar fashion (2 & 1). Senior Gifford Sommerkamp (Bethesda, MD) halved with Williams’ Zach McArthur in the No. 8 match. In alternate-shot play, Sharaf and Corradi teamed for a 1-up win over the Ephs’ No. 2 team of John Kildahl and Alex Mallory, while Bruns and junior Keith Zalaski (Simsbury, CT) halved their No. 3 match with Sirignano and Kevin Kellert.

Amherst swept all four team matches against Wesleyan and won seven of eight singles tilts, halving the No. 3 match between Amherst sophomore Sean Jules (Chicago, IL) and Wesleyan’s Adam Stone, leaving the Cardinals winless on the day.
