After 36 holes at this weekend Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championships, the medalist honor had yet to be decided. To some, the pressure of a playoff situation is just too much, but freshman Yellowjacket golfer Stephen Goodridge relished the opportunity.”I love playing in playoffs – I really enjoy the head-to-head battle where it is one on one,” Goodridge said.Although he came up short in the one-hole playoff, Goodridge did not second-guess his performance.”I can’t be ashamed of losing in that playoff because I didn’t make any mistakes,” Goodridge said. “I nearly holed my 50-foot putt for birdie and my opponent hit three perfect shots to beat me.” The rest of the UR golf team shared in a similar fate. The team achieved a second-place finish, just nine shots behind Skidmore College, after taking the leading going into the final round. The team was paced by Goodridge’s two-over 146, securing his position in the medalist playoff. Sophomore Patrick Shanahan improved on day two to tie for seventh place with a score of 156. Breaking 80 on day two placed sophomore Colin Quillinian in the tournament’s top 25. Fellow sophomores Robert Sherman and Joe Derrigo rounded out UR’s scoring with 165 and 172, respectively.The UR golfers look for continued success as they travel to Blue Heron Hill Country Club to participate in the Nazareth-St. John Fisher Shootout this weekend.Allard can be reached at
