Special guest Vincenzo Salina, a senior at Georgetown, joins Ringler and Wildman to discuss conference championship madness.
Towson is back in the postseason.
The Tigers won their first Colonial Athletic Association Championship on Sunday and will make their fourth trip to the NCAA postseason and first since 2005.
Towson, No. 151 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings, closed with a 21-over 301 on the Cascades Course at The Homestead in Hot Springs, Va., to finish at 45-over 885.
William and Marry finished second, 12 strokes behind the Tigers. Defending CAA champs Virginia Commonwealth was third at 897.
Wind that reached 35 mph affected scores all weekend.
Towson placed four golfers in the top 15, led by junior Nyasha Mauchaza and senior Chris Scialo, who tied for fourth at 10-over 220.
Towson’s previous best finish in the CAA Championship was a runner-up showing in 2005.
It was their seventh top-5 finish this season.
Delaware junior Justin Martinson won the individual championship at 3-over 213. It was his second consecutive victory and his third of the season. Martinson became the eighth Delaware Blue Hen in school history to win a conference championship.
