Habeeb is one of 15 golfers honored in the Northeast Region and one of 96 across six regions in NCAA Division III. The all-region award is his first with the Continentals.

Habeeb led the Hamilton men with an 18-hole stroke average of 72.67 for nine competitive rounds last fall. He tied for first place at the Williams College Fall Invitational with a two-day total of 141, including a career-best round of 69, and the 36-hole score was also his best with the Continentals. He was runner-up at the St. Lawrence University Invitational (142) and tied for sixth place at Middlebury College's Duke Nelson Invitational (144).

Habeeb helped lead Hamilton to third place at the 13th NESCAC Men's Golf Championship Qualifier and advance to the 2020 NESCAC Men's Golf Championship. The tournament was to be held at Taconic Golf Club in Williamstown, Mass., on April 25 and 26 before the COVID-19 pandemic cancelled the majority of the spring sports season. He shot no worse than 76 in any of his nine rounds last fall.
