Carroll, UGF Prepare for Conference Golf Tournament

Posted: Updated:

Carroll will be looking for a solid showing to get themselves back to the national tournament. The Saints were back in season last week at the Lewis-Clark State Invite after about a five month hiatus from the season. Carroll was happy to have a chance to get back in the groove at the LC Invite, and they just hope that five month break doesn't make them too rusty.

"Sometimes coming off a break is almost better for some of us just because you're not overthinking it, you just go back into what feels normal," said Saints junior golfer Katie Goins. "But some more practice time would be more beneficial.

"Spring golf can be tough shaking the rust off," said Saints junior golfer Justin Galiher. "That was our one and only tournament leading into Arizona, but you can always find some positives to build on."

As for UGF, the Argos feel they have plenty of momentum going into the tournament. Sophomore Gina Kowalchuk was named the 2016 golfer of the year, and the men's team placed third at their recent meet in Idaho. Some of the golfers traveling to Arizona include Kowalchuk, former CMR Rustler Easton Enott, and former Bison Cody Babinecz. And the teams are team is hungry after their last strong performance.

"The guys that we have this season are far more talented than they know," said Argos head coach Nick Jankiewicz. "They have all the potential to be a dominant force in this conference and it will come with time. Every one of those guys is capable of shooting 66."

"Course management and playing smart is definitely going to help," said Kowalchuk. "They got third in their last conference event. Pushing for first is something that's definitely in their minds so they just have to do what they know how to do."
