With four IC players in the top eight at the end of the two-day competition at Blue Heron Hill Country Club in Rochester, Ithaca beat St. John Fisher, Elmira, and Nazareth at the first-ever Empire 8 Conference championship. IC’s Amanda Failla ’14, who posted a team-best two-day total of 175, finished in third place overall and was named Empire 8 Rookie of the Year. This marks the second consecutive year the Bombers have taken the Rookie of the Year award. “Our golfers have worked hard to improve over the last year, and they deserved IC’s first Empire 8 title,” says head coach Dan Wood, who was recognized as Empire 8 Coach of the Year. “We now are setting our sights on closing the gap with some of the strongest teams in New York State.”
