CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Harvard Director of Golf Fred Schernecker and head men's coach Jim Burke have added one player to the men's golf program for 2009-10.
With nine returning players from a solid Harvard team, the team's needs were limited and a nearby player will look to join the program and turn in a productive 2009-10 season.
Hailing from Brookline, Mass., Max Campion joins the Crimson by way of Beaver Country Day School in Chestnut Hill. Campion's credentials are impressive:
Campion was a five-time letterwinner and Most Valuable Player for the varsity team and captained the team since his sophomore season.
He was the top-ranked golfer in Massachusetts this past season and completed his career as a four-time Boston Globe All-Scholastic selection as well as a four-time All-Independent League Most Valuable Player.
He represented Team Massachusetts at the New England Junior Invitational in 2007 and was a FCWT All-American in 2005. Campion's grandfather, Harry Pars graduated Harvard in 1954.
Harvard begins its fall season Sept. 18-19 at The McLaughlin Tournament at Bethpage Red in Farmingdale, N.Y.
