SMC Golf: Belles win conference Jamboree

Observer Staff Report | Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Led by a course record in conference play by senior Mary Kate Boyce, the No. 5 Belles came out on top in the second MIAA Jamboree.

Saint Mary’s set a team course record as well, shooting a 321 on the day, six strokes better than the previous record held by Olivet.

Boyce tied for first individually for the tournament, shooting a 78 and earning medalist honors.

Three Belles finished the day with a score of 81, good enough for third place in the Jamboree hosted by Calvin. Senior Rosie O’Conner and freshman Marin Beagley and Paige Pollak finished in a three way tie for second best on the Belles squad.

Freshman Doyle O’Brien was the other Belles golfer whose score was eligible for team play, but shot 91, which put her in 18th place.

Freshman Alexi Bown and juniors Christine Brown and Megan Ryan competed individually in the tournament. Brown finished with an 87, Bown with a 93 and Ryan with a 94, earning them 12th, 27th and 32nd place, respectively.

The Belles return home and will host the O’Brien National Invitational Sunday and Monday at Warren Golf Course, where the top finishers from last year’s NCAA Division III Championship will compete.
