My name is Zach Wolansky, I am a junior at Southern Connecticut State University studying sports management. I have been playing club golf for 5 semesters now and look forward to the next 3!
The Metro Region was founded in the Spring of 2013 when the Northeast Region split and more teams in the New Jersey, New York and Delaware area joined the NCCGA. The Metro Region has now made it easier for teams in the Northeast area to expand and compete with other teams in their region. The Metro region had its first regional tournaments in New Jersey, Fall 2013 at Sand Barrens Golf Club and Minebrook Country Club. The Metro Region now consists of Central CT, Yale, Fairfield, Marist, and many others. In the fall of 2017, Yale made an appearance in the first ever NIT. This past spring of 2018, Central CT St accepted an invite to the second ever NIT at Bogey Hills. CCSU and SCSU will continue to battle out for the top spot in the region but don't forget about the likes of Fairfield, Marist and Yale. Fairfield accepted an invite to 2018 fall NIT in Myrtle Beach and turned in a team score of 829 to finish in the middle of the tournament field. CCSU reclaimed the Metro regional title in the spring and took their talents to the Trophy Club for the NIT. They will look to defend this fall with some new teams in the region. Fairfield made a strong return this fall winning both regional's and qualifying for the National Invitational in Oklahoma. This growing region will have some new faces this spring as Fordham and New Haven will look to push for the regional title.
