The Men’s and Women’s teams are both showing strong signs of improvement as their spring season’s draw closer to an end.

The Boxers just recently returned from a two-day tournament at Whitman

University in Washington where they competed in the Whitman Easter Invite.

The Men’s team was led by junior Kelekoilo Moore, who finished 15th in the field with a score of 156 through 36 holes. T h e team as a whole finished 6th after a slow day two on the course.

The Women’s team as a whole finished 7th at the Whitman Invite, with a strong contribution from junior Emily Penttila.

Penttila finished with a two-round score of 201, which earned her 35th place in the field.

While several golfers stood out and both teams put up good performances the first day, their play suffered the second day.

“The Whitman tournament could have been a little better for both teams,” said head coach Richard Warren. “We played well on day one, but slipped a little on day two. We need to be stronger on the second day.”

Warren said he is pleased with the job that his team has done so far this season. “We are making steady improvement with each tournament played,” said

Warren. “Delaney Morse and Erin Heath have made great improvements in their play from the start of the season till now, and we hope that they can continue.”

After the conclusion of the NWC Spring Classic April 11 and 12, the Boxers have just two more tournaments remaining.

The women came in 9th at the tournament and the men came in 7th.

The teams will travel to Sunriver for the NWC Championship tournament April 25 and 26 to conclude their spring seasons.
