The women’s golf team has failed to place above third place out of 13 schools in their first two tournaments of the season.

Their third place finish at the Furniture City Classic in the beginning of September was recently followed by a ninth place finish in last weekend’s Olivet College Kyle Campbell Classic. Calvin finished fifth in the overall MIAA conference standings last year

In their first tournament, Calvin was led to a third place finish by senior Jennie Poole, who had a second day finish of eighth place with 85 strokes. Poole also had the best score for Calvin at the Kyle Campbell classic. Overall, however, it was only good enough for a 15th place finish.

Calvin had a round total of 383 the first day and countered with a better performance the second day, finishing with 365 strokes for a total of 747. Poole shot 86 on Saturday and 88 on Friday.

Other Saturday round totals from Calvin include 92 from sophomore Emily Short and 93 from seniors Sarah Anderson and Casey Harkema.

Hope College (last year’s MIAA champion) placed first in the Kyle Campbell Classic.
