MACEDON - Saint Lawrence University sophomore Aimee Caligiore of Lake Placid capped her fall collegiate golf season Sunday by winning the inaugural ECAC Division II/III individual championship.
Caligiore's win was her second in five starts going back to a victory in the season-opening St. Lawrence University Invitational.
St. Lawrence finished second behind New York University in the team scoring.
Lake Placid native Aimee Caligiore concluded her sophomore fall season at St. Lawrence University with a victory in the ECAC Division II/III individual championship.
On a beautiful fall weekend in Macedon, outside of Rochester, the former Lake Placid Blue Bomber was the lone player to break 80, posting rounds of 77 and 79 on the difficult, hazard-laden, par 71 Blue Heron Hills Golf Club that played nearly 5,900 yards.
Her 36-hole total of 156 bested Amanda Failla of Ithaca College by six shots.
Caligiore took a four-stroke lead into the final round, only to see Failla trim the margin to a shot after 27 holes. But six pars on the incoming nine Sunday, coupled with some errant shots by her closest pursuer, gave Caligiore breathing room over the final holes. She closed with three consecutive pars.
Caligiore concluded the fall campaign with a 77.6 scoring average for the 10 competitive rounds, placing her in the top 10 of the NCAA Division III rankings.
