Hunter has led the Hoyas to four NCAA postseason tournaments.

The Blue & Gray’s second trip to the NCAA East Regional was in 2004 and was held at The Yale Golf Course. The third trip to postseason play sent the Hoyas to the 2010 NCAA Southwest Central Regional in Bryan, Texas on The Traditions Course at Texas A&M. Most recently, the Hoyas competed in the 2016 NCAA Southeast Regional held at The Vanderbilt Legends North Course in Franklin, Tenn.

Under Hunter’s direction, Georgetown has captured three BIG EAST Conference Championships – 1998 (The TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm; Potomac, Md.), 2010 (The Copperhead Course at The Innisbrook Resort; Tampa, Fla) and in 2016 (The Callawassiee Island Golf Club; Okatie, S.C.).

The Hoyas have finished in the top five of the BIG EAST Championship 15 times since 1990 – first place three times, second five times, third five times, and fourth two separate times. In regular season competition, the Hoyas have captured first place in more than 20 in-season tournaments.
