Golf ends season

Carnegie Mellon saw both golf teams in action this week, with the women finishing off their season and the men playing their penultimate regular season tournament.

The women’s team finished its inaugural season as a club team with a fifth-place finish at the Grove City Invitational. Playing at the Grove City Country Club, the Tartans shot a 438 for the 18-hole event and were led by senior Ali Nichols and her fourth-place overall score of 91. Junior Brooke Kuei and sophomore Yoon Hee Ha both finished strong shooting 100 and 102, respectively.

Next season, the women’s team will start intercollegiate play as an official varsity sport.

Over at the Vulcan Invitational, the men came home with a second-place finish with a consistent team effort.

The tournament was hosted by eventual winner California University of Pennsylvania at Cedarbrook Golf Course. Senior Ian Bangor and first-year George Qian tied for ninth overall, each shooting 154 over 36 holes.

Sophomore Ben DuCarme and junior Cameron Low both came up big for the Tartans as they finished one and two strokes, respectively, behind Bangor and Qian. DuCarme went home tied for 12th individually, while Low tied for 14th.

The Tartans will finish their regular season on April 30, when they host the Carnegie Mellon Invitational at Longue Vue Country Club.
