Alex Baum of Monroe defended SUNY Delhi’s title in the two-year division of the Turf Bowl at the New York State Turfgrass Association Conference in Rochester on Nov. 16 and 17. Baum is pursuing an associate’s degree in Golf and Sports Turf Management at SUNY Delhi.

As part of the annual conference, SUNY Delhi students competed in two-year and four-year divisions in the Turf Bowl, which tests their ability to identify various types of turf, weeds and insects and complete a written exam. Students and their faculty spend hours preparing for the competition.

“There’s a lot of pride involved,” said Marvin Seaman, Assistant Professor of Applied Sciences and one of the coaches of the Turf Grass teams.

SUNY Delhi students went into the competition as defending champions in both divisions, maintaining their two-year title. The winning team consisted of students Edgar Magana, Andre Kepler, Alex Baum and Mario Magalsi. James Carlton, Tyler Warren, Ryan Jeskie, and Patrick Vibbard made up the four-year team.
