WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Men's Golf Coach Tommy Hunter honored his team, and specifically his team's seniors, at a season-ending banquet recently at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md.
The Hoyas enjoyed a strong 2011-12 season, with five top-five finishes and seven among the top-10 overall, including a second place finish at the Princeton Invitational and a fifth place effort at the BIG EAST Championship.
Hunter honored a trio of seniors - Brian Czarnecki (Greenwich, Conn./Greenwich), Brian Dorfman (Greenwood Village, Colo./Cherry Creek) and Taylor Hall (Roswell, Ga./Trinity Catholic) - at the banquet.
"Those three young men were a great part of this program and their contributions will be missed," Hunter said. "On and off the course, they were great examples of what we look for in golfers at Georgetown."
All three seniors were recipients of the team's Hoya Award, which recognizes leadership and commitment on the golf course and in the classroom. Dorfman was the recipient of the team's Most Valuable Golfer Award for the fall season, while Hall was the recipient of the Most Valuable Golfer Award for the spring season.
Dorfman and Hall, who were members of the 2010 BIG EAST Championship team that advanced to the NCAA Southwest Regional, were selected to the All-BGI EAST team as a result of their accomplishments.
Dorfman capped off a brilliant career on the Hilltop by leading the team in stroke average at 73.48 for the season. He posted four top-10 finishes this year and six among the top-20 in 10 tournaments. Dorfman won two tournaments during the fall, firing a 7-under par 206 to capture the individual title at the Maryland Intercollegiate and then shooting a 3-under par 210 to win the Bearcat Invitational. In 98 career rounds, Dorfman posted a career stroke average of 74.84 and had three career wins, seven top-10 finishes and 12 among the top-20.
Hall, meanwhile, finished second on the team in stroke average at 74.21. He saved his best for last, leading the Hoyas with a sixth place finish at the BIG EAST Championship, firing a 2-under par 214. A consistent player all season, Hall had four top-20 finishes this year and four among the top-30 during the spring. In 84 career rounds, Hall had a career stroke average of 75.98, with two career top-10 finishes and five top-20.
