Saints Golf Team Preparing for Conference Championship

HELENA -
Larchmont golf course is no stranger to the Carroll Saints. On Monday morning the Saints will be playing on course that isn't their home, but it feels close.

"We've all seen the course several times now, I think it's going to be big," said Saints junior golfer Connor Hausauer. "It's just, we'll have that sense of comfortability on the course and I think that's going to be a huge advantage."

"When you feel familiar with something you're comfortable, you're at ease," added Saints head coach Ben MacIntyre. "And then you can get into the rhythm of your own game and I think that's key."

"We're all mostly from Montana here," noted Saints junior golfer Taylor Ratliff. "We actually have a kid on our team from, his dad's the head pro at Larchmont so hopefully we have an advantage by playing their a couple of times."

And at least this year's bad weather helped someone. Despite their knowledge of the course this year's team feels that their ability to play in not so great weather may be their biggest strength going into the championships.

"Actually some of our best rounds this year have been in some pretty poor weather conditions and our guys welcome the winds and the conditions, and our girls," laughed MacIntyre. "We're used to it, they don't complain they just go out and play it. So it's it's kind of looking like that's the weather we're going to get."

"The weather has been tough but our team has been so dedicated that we've been out here quite a bit and we got to play early in Los Angeles early in the spring so I think we'll be pretty close to being ready to roll," said Hausauer.

On the women's side Carroll returns the reigning conference champion in junior Jackie Mee, who may be getting overlooked.

"She's a first team All Conference golfer this year," said MacIntyre. "She's ranked fifth in the conference right now, but I think she's flying under the radar a little bit."

"It's definitely a goal to try and get back to that national tournament because I didn't play as well as I would as I would have liked to last year at nationals," admitted Mee.

We'll see if the Saints can get some home away from home cooking at the championships so that Jackie and the rest of the team can go to nationals in May.
