Cupp earns NESCAC honor


New Hartford native and Hamilton College men’s golf coach Lauren Cupp has earned a top honor from the New England Small College Athletic Conference. 

Cupp was named the conference’s Coach of the Year on Wednesday.

She was the NESCAC Women’s Golf Coach of the Year in 2021.

This is the first time that Cupp has won the coaching honor for the men’s side.

She helped guide Hamilton to its fourth NESCAC men’s golf title and first since 2003 with a 12-stroke win May 1 at the Yahnundasis Golf Club. 

Hamilton also earned the conference’s automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Men’s Golf Championship. The team competed in the tournament this week in Florida and finished 32.

It is the latest accolade for Cupp, who set the world record for women’s Speedgolf in 2021. She’s also won several tournaments locally and is among the top golfers in Central New York.

Hamilton junior Billy Geach also earned the NESCAC men’s Golfer of the Year honor. Geach is the second Hamilton College golfer to earn the honor, joining Brian Williams who won the award in 2003 and 2004. At the NESCAC championship, Geach finished third overall. Teammates Jack Hamilton and Jacob Zeng earned second team honors.
