The Hamilton College Continentals finished in fourth place out of four teams at the 2019 Ekwanok Sap Bucket Men's Golf Challenge on Tuesday afternoon.

The 18-hole tournament was held at Ekwanok Country Club in Manchester, Vermont. Hamilton will pick up things again in the spring. The Continentals have qualified for the 2020 NESCAC Men's Golf Championship at Williams College's Taconic Golf Club in late April.

Jack Habeeb '22 led Hamilton in 10th place out of 32 golfers with a 76. All nine of Habeeb's rounds this fall were 76 or better, and he came into this event with an 18-hole stroke average of 72.25.

Jason Healy '22 tie for 13th place with a 78 and Billy Geach '23 tied for 17th at 79 in his third collegiate round for the Continentals. Brent Schoeller '21 and Ben Coffey '23 carded 80s and tied for 19th place.

Hamilton's six-man team score was 476. Williams, which received votes in the latest Division III Top 25 coaches poll, took home the Sap Bucket as the team champion with a team score of 447. Nationally ranked No. 22 Trinity College was runner-up at 460 and Middlebury College was third at 464.
