Women's Results

The Carroll College golf team closed the Carroll College Classic with a strong showing to finish third in both the men’s and women’s competition. The Carroll women scored a two round total of 645, the best in the two-round score in Saints history.

The Carroll men passed up Rocky Mountain to move into third possession in the final standings.

“The women did an awesome job,” head coach Bennett MacIntyre said. “Jaylin Kenney, Gabrielle Jones, and Lexi Pyette all had career low scores and as a team to break the school record after losing Jackie Mee, the best female golfer in school history, to graduation is pretty exciting.”

Pyette scored a 76 on the second day to finish with a 159 to pace the Saints. Kenney had a day-two 80 for 162. The two put up career performances considering they both are active in their other sports.

Pyette had a game-winning goal and an assist for the Carroll soccer team this week. After her round Tuesday, she immediately left for soccer practice. Kenney missed Sunday’s practice round to play fall softball with the Saints in Missoula.

“I am blown away with what they were able to accomplish without a lot of practice,” MacIntyre said. “We have a lot of room to grow and improve but I was impressed with what they did and the potential that we have.”

Pyette finished tied for Eighth. Kenney finished with tied for 11th and Rachel Miles finished in 12th with a score of 162.

Lewis-Clark won the team title and the Warriors Karina Davila won the individual title with a 147.

The Carroll men improved in each round with Tuesday’s score of 293 the Saints best round of the tournament with a score of 894 to finish third behind Lewis-Clark (853) and Montana Tech (892) and just in front of Rocky Mountain (896).

Justin Galiher tallied a three round 218 to lead the Saints and finish in eighth overall. Austin Egan tied for 16th overall and second for the Saints. Freshman Bryce Samwel finished 14th but was not on the Carroll varsity team so his team score did not count toward the team score.

“The comeback that our guys had was huge,” MacIntyre said. “From a slow start to a great third round I am excited to see the improvement. We improved every round of the tournament and I think we sent a message to the rest of the conference that we are going to be competitive.”

The Saints have one remaining tournament in the fall, the MSU Billings Fall Invitational on Oct. 8-9 in Billings.
