THE RECORD STAFF
The CSB golf team had a historic weekend at the MIAC Championships Oct. 7-9. After a battling cold weather and fierce competition, the golf team came in second place overall. With a total score of 943, the team set the school record for a 54-hole competition.
Leading the way for CSB was Natalie Amudson and her sister Bridget Amundson. The two both scored +17 after the three days were completed. This was best for a tie in fifth place. The individual MIAC Champion went to Ziyi Wang from Carleton finishing +8 on Monday.
Close behind the Amudson sisters was senior Madeline Pagle. She finished +20 on the last day which was good enough to tie for ninth place. All three golfers finished in the top 10 at Pebble Creek which placed them on the All-Tournment team.
The team finishing first in the MIAC was Carleton with a score of 924, just 19 shots ahead of CSB. The St. Ben’s golfers found themselves fighting off rival St. Thomas all weekend. After Sunday’s round, the Tommies were just three strokes behind CSB. The championship round came to a bitter end, but CSB was able to hang on to second place, with the Tommies finishing nine strokes behind in third place.
Last year, St. Kate’s took home the trophy but this year they fell into fourth place with a team
total of 966. Overall, CSB golf had a historic fall season, with the best three-day score in their history. The golf team will pick things up again in March when they head to Arizona.
