New York, N.Y. - Farmingdale State has been selected to win its fifth consecutive Skyline golf championship in voting conducted by the league’s seven head coaches.

Farmingdale State returns juniors Rich Kelly (Oceanside, N.Y.) and Adam Larkin (Bellmore, N.Y.), who finished second and fourth, respectively, at the 2011 Skyline Championship.
