Farley received his fourth career All-ODAC citation, earning first team laurels as a sophomore, second team honors as a first-year and senior, and third team status as a junior.  The mathematics major has posted a 74.81 stroke average across 16 rounds this year and he has registered a 75.41 average for his career (75 rounds).  Farley finished in a tie for 10th overall at ODAC's this spring with a 74-70-80—224 (+8).
