The Community College of Allegheny County’s successful 2021 spring golf season ended with one of its own winning the CCAC Wild Cat Invitational held at The Links at Spring Church on May 17 and 18. Competing against golfers from other regional institutions, sophomore Dominic Achille, from South Park, finished in first place as the invitational medalist with a score on both days of 81 and a total score of 162, beating the runner-up by six strokes.

The CCAC mathematics major also competed for national honors and All-American status at the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National Championship hosted by Jamestown Community College at Lake Chautauqua, New York, June 7–11. He had a strong finish, placing 25th out of 45 golfers, with scores of 86, 79, 83 and 82. His 330 total was 100 fewer strokes than the final golfer in the tournament.

Achille has received Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference (WPCC) All-Academic High Honors, and he could receive Region XX and NJCAA academic honors in the coming weeks. He will continue his golfing career this fall at Robert Morris University, where he will study mathematics.

“I have had the pleasure of knowing and coaching Dominic for the past three years, and I couldn’t have asked for a better student athlete to represent our golf team and CCAC on the national level,” said Robert Keslar, golf coach and student development specialist/intramurals and recreation. “Dominic is an Academic All-American and a great golfer, but how he handles himself off the golf course is what impresses me the most. Dom will be missed at CCAC; however, I know he is going to succeed at Robert Morris, and I wish him the best of luck.”
