Saint Mary’s finished tied for second place in the Manchester College Fall Invitational, its last tournament before the MIAA Championships next weekend.

The Belles were led by sophomore Emily Gore, who shot an 82 for the one-day tournament, finishing fifth. The Manchester Invitational was only her second tournament of the year.

The Belles’ second-best round came from freshman Natalie Matuszak, who finished tied for sixth with an 83.

The scoring was rounded out by another sophomore, Rosie O’Connor, who shot an 87 and finished in 12th place, and by the Belles senior captain Perri Hamma, who finished in a tie for 16th after shooting an 89.

The Belles are now set to compete in the MIAA Championships, which will take place this Friday and Saturday at Bedford Valley Golf Course in Battle Creek, Mich.

They will enter the tournament in third place in the conference, only one stroke behind second place Hope College. The Championships will determine the season’s champion for the MIAA.
