The men’s and women’s golf teams have shown significant improvement this spring.
The women’s team, in just their second season as a program, took first at the St. Francis (Ill.) Invite during the last weekend of March. It was the third win for the program after they placed first in two tournaments last fall.
The Lady Tigers are led by sophomore Ashley Miller and junior captain Gwen Holmes. Miller took second at the St. Francis Invitational while Holmes placed seventh.
The team will play this weekend at the NAIA Super Regional in Angola, Ind., and then close out their season with the Robert Morris University Spring Classic in Waukegan, Ill.
While the men’s team has struggled as they finished in the bottom half in three out of their four spring tournaments, they took second at the St. Francis Invitational April 11. They were led by freshman Michael Bork, who took first in the tournament. Senior Austin Mounts tied for eighth place.
The Tigers will end their season with the CCAC tournament in Hammond, Ind., this weekend.
