posted in: Fall, Sports | 0

The men and women’s golf teams wrapped up their fall season at the NWC Fall Classic in Sunriver on Oct. 10 and 11.

The women’s team ended up in 7th for the tournament, while the men finished in 9th place.

Both teams had high expectations coming into the fall season after showing a lot of signs of improvement last spring.

“The effort for both teams was beautiful,” said head coach Richard Warren. “They worked hard and were diligent at what we were trying to get accomplished.”

The men’s team had great play from junior Kelekoilo Moore, who shot a season low 71 the first day of the Pacific Fall Invite and finished 9th at the NWC Fall Classic with a two day score of 157.

For the women’s team, Warren was impressed with the play of freshman Jessica Dang, who earned a season best with 10th place at the Whitman Woman’s Invite. Warren was also impressed with senior Erin Heath performance, who showed much improvement from last season.

“Dang, as a freshman, played a little better than what we expected. Her consistency was pretty sharp through much of the season,” said Coach Warren.

“Heath, has come back this year and has shown some real resiliency and consistency.”

The boxers are now looking forward to the spring season where they will hope to improve on their course management, as well as their day-to-day consistency.

“I want us to be able to handle ourselves better on the golf course,” Warren emphasized. “We would play not as well on the second day as we did on the first and that should be reversed. I want us to be more consistent.”

Although they didn’t shoot the scores that they expected, both teams had a lot of positives to take from this fall season and will undoubtedly improve come spring time.
