The Top 13 Performances of 2013

The Top 13 Performances of 2013

Castleton student-athletes once again put forth some impressive performances in 2013, too many to name in this section alone. School records once again came crashing down and eight different teams played in a conference championship game during 2013. Three different teams won conference championships and seven different squads went on to postseason play. Throughout the hundreds of contests, 13 different performances managed to stand out.

Leading up to the New Year we will count down these top-13 performances of 2013. Careful consideration was paid to the magnitude of each game, the historical significance of each performance, and the individual’s overall contribution. 

 

 

 

 

No. 13 Zach Temple at the NAC Championships  (10/13/13)

Temple burst onto the scene as a freshman, posting the lowest score among all Castleton golfers in every event, but none were better than his effort at the North Atlantic Conference Championships. Temple was tied for fourth place with a 74 after the first round and came back with a 79 on the second day to move up to tie for third overall with a 153 in the two-day tournament. He was the only freshman to finish in the top nine of the NAC Championships and earned both NAC Rookie of the Year and First-Team All-Conference honors as a result.
