NORMAN, Okla. – St. Bonaventure senior Danny Gianniny continues to put himself into exclusive territory when it comes to the Bonnies golf record books as he earned another honor for his career resume by garnering a spot on the Golf Coaches Association of America Division I PING All-Northeast Region squad.
Gianniny becomes the first Bonnies golfer to earn PING Division I All-Region status since Nathan Peck did so in 2010.
Already an Atlantic 10 All-Conference selection, Gianniny joined Rhode Island's Chris Francoeur on the Northeast Team as the only A-10 players picked to any of the six region teams.
In a spring-only season, Gianniny shined for the Bonnies. He posted a stroke average of 72.6 over 13 rounds across six events, including three rounds in the 60s and five rounds of 70 or lower. During the year, he logged three top-five finishes and four top-10s and did not finish outside the top-25 in any event.
He finished the season playing at his best. He helped the Bonnies to a victory over rivals Canisius and Niagara by finishing tied for fourth in the Little Three Championship, then earned back-to-back second-place finishes in the Lafayette Collegiate and the Upstate Spring Escape. At Lafayette, he played The Steel Club in 3-under 139 (70-69), matching his own career-best 36-hole total and ranking fourth-lowest in program history. In the next event at the Upstate Spring Escape, he helped the Bonnies to victory over Rhode Island and Colgate. He played Seven Oaks Golf Club in a career-best 5-under 67 which was one off the program record for a low round and best by a Bonnies player since 2018-19. He finished the year with a tie for 25th at the Atlantic 10 Championship at Orlando's Reunion Resort (76-74-74).
Gianniny earned his undergraduate degree earlier this month and plans on returning to the program for a fifth year of eligibility this fall.
