Senior Day Wesleyan Men's Golf

Class of 2020

The 2019-20 Wesleyan men’s golf team played in four tournaments this fall but was unable to hit the links during the spring portion of its schedule due to the global pandemic. Below, we will honor the two graduate students – George Blinick and Chris White – and two seniors – Walker Harris and Elliot Witdorchic – who have recently graduated.

"These now graduates of Wesleyan have been members of the men’s golf team through many seasons. They are all now set for future greatness. I mean that from my heart. The team has hung in there for all obstacles. I know this group of men will shine the WESLEYAN mantra wherever they go and show how they played the game of golf to it’s highest intensity here at WES!!" | Head Coach Jeff Gilarde

George Blinick

George was a graduate student from Lawrence Township, N.J. He majored in Physics for both his undergraduate and graduate degrees. His Master’s research was focused on improving the efficiency of solar cells and he intends to work in the renewable energy sector – ideally photovoltaics. George was also a three-year member of the men’s ice hockey team. He was named to the NESCAC All-Academic Team five times and was a two-time recipient of the NESCAC All-Sportsmanship Team as a member of the golf program.

Walker Harris

Walker was a senior from Boulder, Colo. He was a two-year member of the program and a four-year member of the men’s ice hockey team. Walker excelled on the ice and will go down as one of the greatest Cardinals in program history. He is the only Wesleyan men’s ice hockey player to earn two All-America honors and this winter he helped guide the team to its first-ever NESCAC Championship. Walker was also a two-time All-NESCAC First Team selection, a two-time NEHWA Div. III All-Star, and was the winner of the 2020 Joe Concannon Award which is given to the top American-born collegiate hockey player in New England at the Div. II/III level.

Chris White

Chris was a graduate student from Poughkeepsie, N.Y. He majored in Neuroscience and Biology as an undergrad and Biology for his Master’s of Arts degree. Chris volunteered in the ED at Middlesex Hospital, was the student coordinator for WesReads/WesMath, and volunteered with “Wesleyan Tutoring”. A two-sport athlete who played three years on the men’s ice hockey team, Chris earned six NESCAC All-Academic awards as well as the Graham Prize and Phi Beta Kappa. This summer, he will be working in an orthopedic surgical department before starting medical school at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in the fall.

Elliot Witdorchic

Elliot was a senior from New York, N.Y. An Economics and Government major, Elliot excelled in the classroom and earned three NESCAC All-Academic Team selections. He was a four-year member of the program and one of the most consistent golfers on the team throughout his career.
