2011-12 YEAR IN REVIEW Playing with a roster of mostly newcomers, the Saint Joseph’s golf team struggled to find consistency in 2011-12. With a combined six freshmen and sophomores on this year’s squad, the Hawks relied on returning scoring leader Jimmy Bea to lead the way. Opening the season at the Navy Fall Invitational, Bea and freshman Connor Garrity carried SJU to a 10th-place finish. Bea posted one of his seven top-20 finishes at the season-opening tournament, tying for 13th, while Garrity finished six strokes back to tie for 29th in his first collegiate match. The duo of Bea and Garrity would finish one-two for Saint Joseph’s at the next two events as well, but the Hawks, as a team, couldn’t find consistent scoring throughout the lineup. Facing talented opponents at the Adams Cup, Saint Joseph’s finished in 17th place, and followed with a 12th-place finish at the Cobra-PUMA Invitational, despite Bea’s tie for 19th. The Hawks would get three strong performances from Bea to cap the Fall portion of their schedule. After finishing tied for 25th at the Big 5 Classic, Bea came on strong tying for seventh at the Georgetown Hoya Intercollegiate and tying for 15th at the Old Dominion/Outerbanks Collegiate. Despite three solid outings by the Hawks’ senior, Saint Joseph’s continued to struggle with steady scoring from its youthful roster as it finished toward the bottom of the field. After a tough outing at the C & F Bank Invitational to start the spring, Bea posted three stellar showings, finishing 15th at the Villanova Wildcat Invitational, 10th at the Princeton Invitational and tying for fifth at the Navy Spring Invitational. Saint Joseph’s steadily improved over the course of the Spring, with the Hawks posting their best performance at the Navy Spring Invitational with a tie for eighth place. The Hawks finished the season with their most balanced effort. Competing for the Atlantic 10 crown at the Heron Bay Golf Club, Saint Joseph’s opened the tournament in the middle of the pack, just eight shots back of fourth place. With torrential rain during the second round, the Hawks slipped back to ninth place, but all five SJU golfers remained competitive, ranging just seven strokes between them. Unfortunately for Saint Joseph’s, the third and final round was called off due to the rain, leaving the Hawks in ninth place, while Bea capped his collegiate career tying for 31st and fellow senior Andrew Jaskel tied for 40th two shots behind.
