Belles head to Florida
Observer Sports Staff | Tuesday, March 4, 2014
Saint Mary’s will look to replicate its fall success during the spring season. In the fall, the Belles finished second overall in the MIAA.
Saint Mary’s last competed Oct. 12, when the team traveled to Bedford Valley, Mich., for the MIAA End of Season Weekend Jamboree. In the second round of the tournament, junior Janice Heffernan shot a 75, which was the lowest score in the entire competition. In fact, Heffernan’s score was the fifth-lowest conference competition score in Belles’ program history.
In the fall, Heffernan and senior Paige Pollak earned All-MIAA First Team honors, while freshman Ali Mahoney garnered All-MIAA Second Team honors.
This spring, Saint Mary’s will chase its seventh MIAA title. To claim the title, the Belles need to top Olivet, the reigning conference champion. This season, the Comets will look to claim their fourth consecutive MIAA title.
Under the leadership of first-year head coach Kim Moore, the team will begin its spring season March 13 at the SMSU Spring Invitational in Daytona Beach, Fla.
