Edison, NY - After falling one shot short of a MAAC Championship in 2016, the Manhattan Golf Team was tabbed to finish second this year in the annual preseason poll according to a vote by the league's nine head coaches.

Siena, which captured the 2016 MAAC Golf Championship, was picked to repeat in 2017 after earning seven first place and 78 total votes.

"It is nice to be recognized by the MAAC Golf Coaches and we look forward to another great MAAC Championships at Disney World," said Head Coach Frank Darby.

The Jaspers, who return five letterwinners, notched one first-place and 68 total votes in being slated to finish second.

Leading the returners for Manhattan is junior Ryan Lynch (Boynton Beach, FL / Park Vista), who placed second at last year's MAAC Championships. In the fall, Lynch paced the Jaspers in three of their five events.

Fairfield came in third with 54 points, followed by Iona (53 points), Rider (39 points), Saint Peter's (37), Monmouth (31), Niagara (27) and Canisius (18).

Manhattan opens the spring season at the Snowman Invitational in Goodyear, AZ on Saturday, February 25.
