The men’s golf team traveled home from Brunswick, Maine this weekend with a third place finish under their belts and a spot in the NESCAC Golf Championships. This was the team’s strongest showing in the season thus far, finishing with a team two-round total of 619.

Sophomore James Line ’16 paced the Jeffs with scores of 77 and 75 on days one and two respectively. Josh Moser ’15, with a two-round total of 155, and Jarvis Sill ’15, with a two-round score of 157, were right behind Line. Harrison Marick ’17 took nine points off his day one score to help lower the team total and tied senior captain Nicholas Koh for 25th overall.

“I’m really proud of James, Jarvis, Josh and Harrison for the way they hung in there,” Koh said. “We were coming from behind after day one and Coach Arena put us in the exact frame of mind that we needed to be. This weekend was a very rewarding and satisfying experience as a captain.”

This is the team’s first bid since the 2010-2011 season. They will compete with Middlebury, Trinity and Williams for the Championship.

The women’s golf team placed fourth of nine at the Middlebury College Invitational this past weekend posting a team total of 677. First-year Jamie Gracie ’17 lead the Jeffs once again, shaving seven strokes off her day one score to tally an 81 on day two.

Senior co-captains Kristen Lee and Sooji Choi and Devyn Gardner ’16 were right behind Gracie, tying for 16th overall with two-round scores of 170.

“I think we were really close to reaching our goal of a top-three finish,” Lee said. “But anyone who plays golf knows how difficult and unpredictable the game can be. As much as I wish we could’ve done better, I couldn’t be prouder of the team for being individuals that other teams want to play with. We have the potential, it’s just about the execution which I think will come on the right weekend.”

The Jeffs return to action this weekend at the Williams Fall Classic.
