STOW, Mass.  – The Elms College men's golf team carded a 327 on the final day of action at the 2014 New England Collegiate Conference Championships to claim second overall on the team leaderboard at the Stow Country Club Sunday afternoon.

The Blazers finished with a combined team score of 638 over 36 holes of play. Sophomore Chris Miele (South Hadley, Mass.) posted a 155 across two rounds to finish tied for second on the individual leaderboard. Freshman Mike Fleury (West Springfield, Mass.) was one stroke back at 156 for a share of fourth overall. Senior Nick Smith (Enfield, Conn.) shot a 162 to finish at 11th, while junior Dan Olive (Jefferson Township, N.J.) was tied at 13th with a 165. Freshman Brian Cowles rounded out the Blazers golfers, taking a share of 18th place with a 177.

Miele and Fleury were named First Team All-Conference for their efforts during the tournament. Miele ears First Team honors for the second consecutive season, while Fleury takes home his first award.

Babson College won the event with a score of 623, earning an automatic trip to the NCAA Division III National Championships next spring. Trailing Elms was Newbury College (665), Daniel Webster College (675), Springfield College (726), Becker College (744), and Mitchell College (812).
