A pair of local colleges (York and Gettysburg) captured conference golf titles over the weekend. Here’s more on each:
— The York College men’s golf squad shot a Day 2 total of 309 to cruise to the Capital Athletic Conference championship Sunday at Wild Quail Golf & Country Club in Dover, Del.
The Spartans finished with a two-day total of 613 as they won the tournament by 23 strokes. The tournament championship is York’s second in the six-year history of the CAC tournament. The Spartans last won the tournament title in 2009 at Piney Branch Golf Club in Hampstead, Md.
Kevin Long closed out his season with a four-over-par 76 on Sunday, good for a third-place finish.
Spartan head coach Matt Hunter was selected by his peers as the CAC coach of the year. It is the third time a Spartan head coach has earned the honor, as retired coach Jeff Gamber was honored in 2009 and 2012.

— Gettysburg College’s Kara McNulty defeated McDaniel’s Morgan Koopman in a playoff Sunday to capture the Centennial Conference women’s golf championship at Hanover
Both had finished with a two-day total of 161, before McNulty took the victory on the first extra hole.
The Bullets shattered both the 18- and 36-hole tournament records, firing a 331 on Saturday en route to a two-day total of 677. The first-round score was eight strokes better than any other team round while the 36-hole score was 14 shots better.
Congratulations to both teams!
