Golf - Tue, Sep. 27, 2011
Rain or shine, Georgetown College men's and women's golf
teams stayed focused in their own fall tournament to take third in both
competitions. A five-hour delay stalled the first day, but all 76 golfers got
in 18 holes each day.
"Fall or spring, elements can play a factor, but overall
I thought this tournament went really well," said Tiger coach Flash Williams. "I
was very pleased with both of my teams and while it is a long couple of days,
it is always a great event."
Lee University won for the females and Reinhardt University
won for the males, each team was led behind medalists Geandra Almeida (LU) and
a tie Zach Lindsey and Justin Osborn (RU).
J.T. Ross, Marcus Lake and Jordan Bell all scored 152
over the two days to lead GC and finish eighth overall. Casey Mingua shot a 158
to tie for 18th place, while Dylan Underwood shot a 159 to come in 21st, rounding
out the Tigers scoring golfers.
Lauren Kohake finished eight for the women with a 171,
while Marlene Nall was 10th with a 180. Katie Jones (tied for 16th) and Corri
Collins (tied for 18th) gave GC a third and fourth scorer in the top 20 with a
197 and 204, respectively. Deanna Johnson finished just a few spots back at 23rd
with a 209.
Williams played a few independent scorers for both his
men's and women's teams. Lauren Von Ohlen shot a 184 to finish 13th, while
Sydney Mosko and Shay Graham shot a 220 and 281 through two rounds.
Jacob Flora's 157 put him 15th on the men's side. Morgan
Reed and Riley Williams shot 164 for 28th. Michael Eichberger (165), Tanner
Mahoney (166) and Brett Doggett (167) finished in the 30s, while John Hunter
(174) and Kyle Bobrowski (178) finished in the 40s to round out the Tiger
Both teams return to action Oct. 5-7 in the fall
Mid-South Conference tournament and each got a chance to play against some league
foes. The men finished four strokes back of St. Catharine and finished 25
strokes ahead of Shawnee State and 37 ahead of University of Pikeville.
The women were 71 strokes off Campbellsville University
and 55 ahead of Pikeville.
