The ECC Championship is determined by a combination of team’s finish in the ECC Preseason and Postseason Tournaments as well as victories in head-to-head dual meets against conference opponents. The 2016 ECC Tournament is scheduled for Sept. 29 at Glenview Golf Course.

 

Individually, the Eagles feature two of the league’s top- ranked golfers in seniors Nathan Arnold (1st-37.5 average) and Aaron Wade (4th-38.5).
