The Muhlenberg mens golf team began what it hopes will be a return to
prominence in the Centennial Conference in 2006.
Walach played 50 rounds as a Muhlenberg golfer, averaging 82.7 strokes. He
shot in the 70s 15 times.
The Mules, who won the CC title in 2004 but slipped to seventh place last
year, improved two places to fifth and were just two strokes behind
Two newcomers gave the team much reason for optimism. Freshman Bill
was the teams top finisher at the CC Championships, coming in ninth,
averaged 82.3 strokes per round for the year. He had six rounds in the
70s, including a team-season-low 73 at the Franklin & Marshall Fall
Invitational. Sophomore transfer Garrett Carpenter led Muhlenberg
82.1 average, tying for second with a 74 at the New York University
The two new players joined three seniors Chris Walach,
and Tim Johnston in the Mules starting five. Walach had
round (a 79 on the first day) at the CC Championships, Farrelly improved
his average from last year by more than two strokes, and Johnston shot a
career-best 79 at the McDaniel Spring Invitational.
Muhlenberg changed its scheduling philosophy for the 2005-06 year, with
three two-day invitationals and one three-day competition among its 11
tournaments. The Mules finished second at their own tournament and tied
for fourth at F&M in the fall.
