Boys of Boca vs. Fighting Knights

By Sean Harvey ’10

Another year has passed and so has another great match between the Boys of Boca Raton and the current Fighting Knights men’s golf team. On alternate years, the men’s golf alumni group of Gary Bates, Jay Slazinski, Bill Downes, Matt Fitzgerald, Dennis Fabbri, Eric Abreu, Marty DeAngelo, Rick Coleman and Bryan Schewitz reunite in Boca Raton to play a friendly match against the current Lynn men’s golf team.

These particular alumni played for the College of Boca Raton (CBR) and during their tenor at CBR, their team was ranked #1 in National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).

This year the match was halved between the two teams, but an enormous amount of fun was had by all. When asked about this biennial tradition, men’s golf coach Chris Greenwood said, “It is great to see current students and graduates from 20 years ago bond through one common connection. There are many positive things that come from that bond.” Over the years this group has built a large network of former players who they still keep in contact with to this day.
