Calvin Women's Golf Takes Third at MIAA Jamboree at Trine - Inch Closer to Second Place in MIAA Standings

ANGOLA, Ind. - Calvin played through soggy conditions Wednesday afternoon to post a school record team score at an MIAA Jamboree hosted by Trine University.

The Knights posted a school record team of 334 strokes at the Zollner Golf Club on the campus of Trine University. Wednesday's MIAA Jamboree was the third of the fall season and leaves Calvin in fourth place in the overall team standings.

In Wednesday's MIAA Jamboree, Calvin finished tied with Trine for third place and just one stroke behind second place Hope.

Calvin trails Hope for third place in the overall MIAA team standings by just two strokes and is now seven strokes within second place Olivet.

Saint Mary's took first place at Wednesday's competition at 312 and continues to lead the overall team standings.

Sophomores Kaylee Hirschman (Grand Ledge, Mich./Grand Ledge HS) and Emma Dykhouse (Byron Center, Mich./South Christian HS) had strong afternoons with rounds of 83.

Junior Linnea McDonnough (Pentwater, Mich./Pentwater HS) and freshman Jericha Sharphorn (Hudsonville, Mich./Hudsonville HS) had rounds of 84. Junior Meredith Bult (Wheaton, Il./Wheaton Academy HS) had an 89.

Competing individually, junior McKenna Smith (Bridgman, Mich./Bridgman HS) had a 98.

COACHES COMMENT: "We had a solid day of play from all players in the lineup," said Calvin women's golf coach Jerry Bergsma. "No one went really low but we needed everyone to do their part today. We had tough conditions with a very wet golf course but we stayed positive and played well enough to stay in the race for second place at the half-way point of the league schedule."

NEXT UP: Calvin will compete at an MIAA Jamboree on Thursday hosted by Olivet at the Medalist Golf Club at 1 p.m.
