Ian Lynch, the Colgate-bound East Hampton High School senior and class valedictorian, made the all-state golf team as a result of his 15th-place finish in the state tournament played on Cornell University’s course last weekend.
It was the first time that Lynch, who also was the recipient of Suffolk golf’s sportsmanship award, had made the all-state team.
Claude Beudert, who has coached Lynch on East Hampton’s varsity since his seventh-grade year, said he shot rounds of 76 and 82 at Cornell “in trying conditions. There was a thunderstorm Sunday with torrential rain, and on Monday it was 60 degrees and the wind was blowing 25 miles per hour. . . . He’s had the greatest impact on our program of any player I’ve ever coached.”
