Seniors Danny Harcourt and Dane Sethre-Hofstad were each named to the All-Centennial Conference Men’s Golf First Team with Harcourt also taking home the Player of the Year award.
Harcourt earned the top individual award after claiming medalist honors at the CC Championship last weekend. The senior shot 225 (73-79-73) over the three days to win by four strokes and become Gettysburg’s first CC Player of the Year since Peter Ruymann ’11 in 2011. Harcourt is also the first Bullet to earn both CC Rookie of the Year and CC Player of the Year recognition.
The award is the culmination of a record-breaking season for Harcourt, which has seen him claim medalist honors at a conference-record five events and post a league-low scoring average of 72.8. He is currently on pace to break his own program record for single-season scoring average as well as the Centennial mark of 73.9. Harcourt did not shoot above 80 in 21 rounds of competition and carded five rounds in the 60s, including a record-tying 67 on day two of the Rosemont Ravens Invitational.
For his career, Harcourt is well on his way to smashing the program’s career scoring mark at 74.3 strokes per round. He has won 13 tournaments and placed among the top 10 in 39 of 51 events.
Sethre-Hofstad joins Harcourt as the most formidable 1-2 punch in program history. The senior from Minnesota finished runner-up to Harcourt at the CC Championship to claim all-conference accolades for the second year in a row. He has turned in his best season to date, posting a career-best average of 74.7 over 19 rounds of competition and finishing among the top five eight times. Sethre-Hofstad recorded the lowest final round in conference championship history with a 68. He posted the same score while shooting three-under on the way to a win at the Elizabethtown Fall Invitational and he notched a 69 to win the Moravian Spring Invitational.
Harcourt is the only Gettysburg golfer with a career scoring average better than Sethre-Hofstad, who is second all-time at 75.5 strokes per round. He has won medalist honors seven times and owns 24 top-10 finishes in 36 total events. Appropriately, Sethre-Hofstad and Harcourt share the program’s single-round record at 67.
Additionally, head coach Nate Davis was named the CC Coach of the Year after guiding Gettysburg to its first conference title in 17 years in his first season at the helm. The Bullets erased a 15-stroke deficit on the final day of competition, finishing the round with a 295 and beating out runner-up McDaniel College by six strokes with a three-day tally of 937 (319-323-295). On the year, Gettysburg set a new program record with nine tournament titles and its team scoring average of 302.5 is 5.3 strokes better than the previous program mark set in 2015-16 (307.8).
This is the second CC Coach of the Year award for Davis. In 2017-18, he was named the women’s basketball Coach of the Year after guiding Gettysburg to the league title.
Sophomore Quinn Greene was tagged to the CC All-Sportsmanship Team. Greene posted a career-low scoring average of 78.6 and logged five top-10 finishes this season. He shot a season-low 72 on the second day of the Carnegie Mellon Fall Shootout and tied for fifth at the Gettysburg Spring Invitational.
As the conference champion Gettysburg receives an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Championships set for May 14-17 at the Keene Trace Golf Club in Nicholasville, Ky. It will be the Orange and Blue’s first national appearance since 1994.
