Myles Altorelli

Junior / New Milford

Altorelli earned a nod on the All-South-West Conference team for the first time in his career. The junior carded an 86 at the SWC tournament and his differential of plus-4.86 - the average above the course rating - qualified him to play individually at the state tournament, where he shot an 87.

Kyle Fera

Senior / Danbury

The Danbury senior closed out his high school career with his finest season. His 1.28 differential was the lowest among all golfers in the Division-I state tournament. Fera missed a place on the All-Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference by one spot but garnered All-West Division honors.

Jake Gorelick

Senior / Ridgefield

The four-year starter for the Tigers closed out his high school career with a spot on the all-state team. Gorelick fired a 78 at the state tournament to lead Ridgefield to a 12th-place finish. Gorelick also earned a spot on the All-Central Division team in the FCIAC and he will play at Lehigh University next year.

Kelly Rose Kronen

Senior / Danbury

Kronen won medalist honors at the state and FCIAC tournaments to close out her illustrious high school career. Her even-par 35 at the FCIAC tournament beat out the second-place finisher by four shots and she tied two others for the lowest round at the state tournament. She also qualified for the New England golf tournament for the third year in a row.

R.J. Ochs

Junior / Danbury

For the second year in a row, Ochs earned a spot on the all-state team. He also was the only junior to place on the All-FCIAC team. Ochs' 74 at the Division-I state tournament was the team's lowest, as the hatters finished 14th. The junior also qualified for the Holohan tournament, which determines the individual FCIAC champion, and shot a 77.

Sam Pelletier

Sophomore / Pomperaug

Pelletier placed in the top three at both the SWC and Division-II state tournaments. He was second at the state tournament with a 72 and his 73 at SWCs placed him third. Pelletier, who finished the season with a 2.8 differential, is the first Pomperaug golfer to qualify for the New England golf tournament.

Alex Rocque

Senior / Pomperaug

The senior placed fourth at the SWC tournament with his 80. He later carded a 79 at the state tournament to help the Panthers to a third-place finish in Division II. Rocque's 5.0 differential was good enough to earn him a spot on the SWC All-Colonial Division team.

Jen Tierney

Senior / Danbury

The Sacred Heart University-bound golfer garnered spots on both the all-state and all-conference team. She finished third at the FCIAC tournament with a 41 and her 86 at the state tournament was the seventh-best score. Tierney qualified to play in the New England golf tournament but declined the invitation.

Jim Widman

Sophomore / Pomperaug

The sophomore landed a spot on the All-SWC team. He fired a 77 at the SWC tournament to place second and he finished the season with a 3.7 differential. Widman also carded a 77 at the state tournament to help Pomperaug place third.

Coach of the Year

Rich Szymanski

Pomperaug

In what was supposed to be a rebuilding year, Szymanski led Pomperaug to a second-place finish in the SWC and third at the Division-II state tournament. Szymanski coached the Panthers to a 10-3 record despite graduating five golfers from last year's team.
