Women’s Golf Looks to Repeat as NEIGA Champs this Weekend

BOSTON – The Suffolk women's golf team will defend its 2017 New England Intercollegiate Golf Association's title this weekend as the Rams compete to repeat for the NEIGA crown at the Captains Golf Course in Brewster, Massachusetts, Oct. 21-22.

Suffolk women's golf's championship prep did not go as planned as the Rams were rained out after nine holes Saturday.

The New England Intercollegiate Golf Association (NEIGA) is a non-profit organization, which was first organized in 1934 at the Oakley Country Club in Watertown, Massachusetts. NEIGA is believed to be the largest gathering of collective players from all levels of NCAA competing at the same location on a 36-hole layout. There are currently 46 New England colleges and universities as members of the NEIGA.

Two championship golf courses at one location line in the Captains Golf Course. Together, the par-72 Port Course and the par-72 Starboard Course deliver 36 holes.

Suffolk women's golf added more accolades to its short history as year ago as the Rams hoisted the NEIGA Women's Golf Division III Trophy after a two-day tournament at The Captains Golf Course.

Along the way, Nicole Antonucci, Brooke Chapman and McKenzie McGrath all made history as the first-ever Suffolk golfer's – both male and female – to take home All-NEIGA honors and did so in first-team fashion.
