SMC GOLF: Belles take on MIAA rival team Bulldogs

Mike Gilloon | Friday, September 23, 2005

Saint Mary’s will play in the last of three conference jamborees this season at 1 p.m. Saturday. The tournament, to be held at Lewanee Country Club in Adrian, Mich. is a final tuneup for the Belles before the MIAA championships in two weeks.

The team finished second in last week’s jamboree with a 346. Megan Mattia and Katie O’Brien paced the Belles, both shooting an 82 to tie for first place.

Kirsten Fantom and Nicole Bellino finished 19th as both shot 91.

The squad shot a course-record 332 at the first conference jamboree Sept. 14. Mattia finished first in that tournament as well with a 79. Fantom was close on her heels with a third-place 82.

Saint Mary’s carries a 4.5 stroke lead over Olivet through two jamborees. Hope is in third place, 12.5 strokes back.

The MIAA jamborees lead up to the conference championships, to be held Oct. 7-8.
