Packer competed in eight tournaments last year, posting a season-best 73 three times, including the second day of the NESCAC Tournament to finish in a 16th-place tie. He also carded a pair of 77s for a 154 at the NEIGA Championships in October to garner a season-best eighth-place effort.
Junior Jordan Bessalel and sophomore Chris Thompson had solid years on the course for the Panthers. Bessalel competed in the fall season, highlighted by a two-day score of 146 (74-72) during the NESCAC Qualifier to finish in a fourth-place tie. Thompson competed in six tournaments during his first collegiate year for the Panthers. He recorded a season-best 72 on the opening day of the Saratoga Invitational, followed by a 79 to wind up with a 151 and a tie for 16th.
Other returning Panthers who will compete for spots this season are senior John Stenovic, junior John Mikus and sophomores David Ball and Kenneth Dieker. Each has seen playing time in the lineup during their careers, while first-year players will also compete for spots.
