Pacific golfers finished up their season this past weekend in Woodburn, Ore. at the Northwest Conference Championships.
Five athletes from the men’s team and five from the women’s team took to the course in hopes of ending the 2013 season on a high note.
Head Golf Coach Richard Warren talked about the kind of preparation the team was working on coming into the final tournament.
“We worked hard on our short game and course management,” he said.
From the women, seniors Emily Throud and Jayme Hall did all they could to create a lasting moment in their careers at Pacific. After day one, Throud finished 14-over-par with a score of 86. This put her in 12th place.
Hall ended the day tied for 18th place with a score of 89.
As they played into day two, Throud continued to lead the women by shooting an 89. And Hall finished in 19th place after a second score of 88.
Overall, the Boxer women came home with a sixth place finish out of eight teams.
The George Fox Bruins took the championship.
On the men’s side, sophomores Nick Johnson and Josh Mau contributed with their performance both days of the tournament:
Mau shot eight-over-par with total of 152 on the weekend, putting him tied for 13th. Johnson finished by shooting a total of 157, tying for 22nd.
Despite their efforts, the team ended the season with an eighth place finish.
“I would say as a team, both men and women, we did not meet the expectations and goals we set for ourselves,” Warren stated.
Next season will be a fresh start with new opportunities to accomplish what the team has planned.
