Team falls short at golf nationals
by Blaine Meller
After capturing both ACAC titles this year, Mount Royal’s golf team was hoping for a repeat performance this past week at nationals. Unfortunately, they came up a little short. Competing at the PING Canadian Colleges Athletic Association Golf Championships in Kamloops, BC, the Cougars finished fourth and seventh re- spectively in the women’s and men’s teams events. Oshawa’s Durham College captured the women’s title while Toronto’s Humber College triumphed on the men’s side. Individually, Lauren Schmidek finished in seventh place with a three-day score of 260. Maddie Pedersen tied for ninth at 266 and Katie Beniot finished 19th at 282. Josee Doyon of Champlain claimed the women’s individual title, af- ter shooting three rounds of 74 for a 222 total.
On the men’s side, Nathan Schurr and Jeremy Vold tied for 19th at 226, Craig Bloom and Gerry MCDonald tied for 26th at 228, Wallace O’Neil was 56th at 235 and Ryan Tofani ended in 84th at 244. David Lang, Mark Hoffman and Adrian Card, all of Humber College, finished first, second, and third on the men’s side.
