Carroll Golf Holds Steady After Day Two

Sophomore Greg Jones hit a team tournament-best 76 to help Carroll cut 14 strokes off of their team total and remain in fourth place after two rounds of the Frontier Conference Championship in Tempe, Ariz.

The Carroll women remain in third place after shooting a second round team score of 345, five strokes off of their first-round total.

Jones led a team improvement that helped hold off a hard-charging Montana Tech team. The Diggers sit just one stroke behind the Saints in fifth place.

"I am happy to see the guys team improve the way they did today," head coach Bennett MacIntyre said. "Greg jones really stepped up and was nice to get a solid scoring round from him. I think will have our best round in the third and final round tomorrow."

Rachel Miles led the way for the women with a second-round 84. Lexi Pyette overcame some early struggles to score a second-round 85, she sits in fifth-place overall with a two-round total of 164.  Katie Goings is in seventh place overall with a two-round total of 170. Miles jumped into ninth place, up from 13th.

"We have three girls in the top 10 and hopefully we can finish with another strong showing tomorrow as a team," MacIntyre said. "Lexi battled out there today and was in the feature women's group, I was happy with the way she responded and hung in there when she wasn't having her best day"

The Saints close out the championship Wednesday with the shotgun start beginning at 8:30 p.m. MDT.

UGF's Kuntz Two Strokes Behind Leader

Taylor Kuntz is two strokes behind the leader while Gina Kowalchuk moved from T-8th to 6th at the conclusion of the second round of the Frontier Conference Championship. While Kuntz played well in round two, his teammates didn’t fare as well, with the Argo men dropping from tied for second to third on the team leaderboard.

After finishing day one in a five-way tie for 4th with a round of 76, Kutnz hit an even better 72 on his second time through the course to finish with a total score of 148. The sophomore is the tournament’s best golfer on Par 4 holes, averaging a score of 4.05 on Par 4s and has shot 22 pars and four birdies throughout the first two rounds.

Kutnz’s was joined by two other teammates in toward the top of the leaderboard when the day started, but unlike Kuntz, sophomore Paul Brannan and freshman Cody Babinecz couldn’t manage to stay there. Brannan dropped from 3rd to T-9th after a round of 80, while Babinecz dropped from T-4th to 14th with a round of 82.

Babinecz now sits just in front of UGF senior Garret Adair who moved up four spots to 15th after hitting a 75 that included an eagle on the first hole, one of three eagles so far in the tournament.

Brannan’s and Babinecz’s struggled puts UGF in third, nine strokes behind 2nd place Lewis-Clark State College with a total team score of +46 (614).

For the women, Kowalchuk, the reigning conference Player of the Year made up some ground after finishing T-8th after the first round. The sophomore improved on her opening round 85 but five strokes to move into 6th with a total score of +20 (164). While the progress is good, she still remains well behind Rocky Mountain College’s Kyla Clancy who leads with a +10 (154).

The Lady Argo team remains in fifth place with a team score of 799.
