Not much was expected from the UC Davis men’s golf program, as it was supposed to be a rebuilding year.
Sophomore Matt Seramin had other plans for the Aggies for the 2011-2012 season.
Seramin stepped up to the tee in UC Davis’ time of need, leading the Aggies to their second straight Big West Conference title.
The sophomore had only a couple of rounds of college competition from last year, so his talents began to show later in the season as he gained experience.
The San Geronimo, Calif. native fired a three under par over the three-round competition to tie for fourth place individually at the Big West Championship.
Seramin had two individual top-five finishes over the season, both coming in consecutive weeks. The week before he finished fourth at the Big West, he placed second at the Winchester Classic in Meadow Vista, Calif. with a one over par.
