ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – St. Bonaventure University golf head coach Ryan Swanson has announced the addition of Lance Sininger to the program with the signing of a National Letter of Intent to join the Bonnies next fall.
"We are thrilled to welcome Lance to the Bonnies golf family," Swanson said. "He is a great player and has proven to be one of the best in the state of Ohio. He will come on to a team that lost four seniors to graduation, so he will look to make his mark, and have the opportunity to do so immediately."
A native of Georgetown, Ohio, Sininger will graduate from Georgetown High where he has posted a nine-hole scoring average of 34 to lead the Cincinnati area in scoring the past two years. He currently owns his high school's record for nine and 18-hole low scores of 29 and 67 respectively.
He has won the Southwest Ohio High School sectional championship three times and has also captured Southern Buckeye Conference Golfer of the Year honors on three occasions. Also a three-time selection to the Cincinnati Enquirer All-City Team, he's won three Southern Ohio Junior PGA events as well. This past fall, he earned a bid to the Ohio state tournament with a second place finish at the Division III district tournament. At states, he placed 14th with a score of 159 in the field of 72 competitors.
"I chose St. Bonaventure because it made me feel like home," Sininger said. "I was very impressed with the academic structure of the Univeristy and its small class size for students."
Also a National Honor Society member, he plans to major in sport management.
The Bonnies have won six events under Swanson's leadership the past two seasons.
