The Colonials' co-captain competed in 14 tournaments during the 2004-05 season, placing among the top 10 seven times, including four second-place finishes. He also had three top-20 finishes. He led GW with a 74.59 stroke average over 30.5 rounds. He matched his season low round of 70 three times, including one at the Princeton Invitational to help George Washington to the team title.
