Holy Cross Golf in 2019-20
During the 2019-20 season, Napoli led the Crusaders to their first tournament victory against Division I competition since 1998, when they captured the title at the Lehigh Invitational.
Holy Cross posted three top five team finishes on the season, while improving its individual scoring average from the previous year by over two strokes per 18 holes.
For the first time in program history, every student-athlete who saw action averaged less than 76 strokes per round, including five of the school’s nine lowest single-season scoring averages of all-time.
