Senior Drew Russ Grabs First Team All-NESCAC Pick

October 3, 2006

AMHERST, MA – Amherst College senior Drew Russ (Maui, HI) received First Team All-NESCAC plaudits for his seventh-place finish at the NESCAC Men’s Golf Championships, hosted by Bowdoin College last weekend.

Russ fired a two-day score of 78-77-155, finishing just eight strokes back of the individual champion and 2006 NESCAC Player and Rookie of the Year, Trinity College's Reid Longley. This marks the second time that Russ has taken home All-NESCAC honors; he got a second-team nod three years ago after tying for sixth place as a first-year.

The Jeffs finished sixth as a team at the NESCAC Championships. They will wrap up their fall slate on Sunday, Oct. 22, when they travel to Cape Cod, and the New England Intercollegiate Golf Association Championship.
