Sports Briefs: Men’s golf
The men’s golf team headed to Greensboro, N.C., for the Division III National Championships on May 10-11.
Junior Alex Fitch won his first tournament on April 22 at Canyon Lakes Golf Course in Richland, Wash., and ranked first with a score of 70, two under par, helping the team place first with a score of only 19 over par.
Once in Greensboro, N.C., Linfield golfers’ season ended on May 11. The team started the tournament in 25th place on May 10, but it dropped to the 30th rank the next day.
Despite ending the journey to nationals early, the team had a rewarding season placing first in three of its tournaments during the season. While the team has three players graduating, it will prepare for next season with a good mix of returning members.
