Hamilton College finished in fourth place out of four teams at the 2018 Ekwanok Men's Golf College Tournament held at Ekwanok Country Club in Manchester, Vermont, on Tuesday afternoon.

Trinity College captured the Sap Bucket that goes to the tournament champion with a team score of 447. Middlebury College was runner-up at 457, Williams College took third at 459, and Hamilton was at 472. The top six out of eight rounds counted towards each team's score in this 18-hole event.

Andrew Watson '19 led the Continentals as he tied for sixth place out of 32 golfers with a season-best 74. Jack Habeeb '22 and Tom Graham '21 tied for 18th place with 79s, and three Hamilton players carded 80s. Habeeb didn't shoot worse than 80 in 11 rounds this fall and Graham posted just one round in the 80s out of the nine he played.

This fall the Continentals captured the Hamilton Invitational team title, were runners-up at the St. Lawrence Invitational, and advanced to the 2019 NESCAC Championship by taking third place in the conference's championship qualifier. The Continentals' spring season will begin in March.
