Women’s Golf Expects Great Year

With last season’s competition at conference championships the Eastern women’s golf team was ready to start this season off right. This year is the Eagles’ fourth season as a team. They are expecting a great year for the Eastern women’s golf team.

The members of the team along with head coach Jason Badecki have been hard at work this fall playing in both games and tournaments. Beginning with a two-day tournament in Erie on September 12, the team began to see what this year will be all about. Since then they have finished third at both Alvernia and Stevenson.

Most recently the team played another two-day tournament in Cortland where they managed to drop 21 strokes on their second day. Senior Kaleigh Boreman led the Eagles that weekend with a score of 185 in the two days, finishing 31st overall.

With golf being both a fall and spring sport, these tournaments this fall serve to set the team up rather well for the spring season. Senior Melissa Wylie had this to say about the tournaments and the team thus far this year: “We’ve been constantly improving. I think that playing against tougher teams has also made us stronger as a team than we were at this point last fall. Travelling has allowed us to bond and become closer as a team. Golf is an individual sport, but for us it’s a team sport and we truly support each other on and off the course.”

The team’s last scheduled game is on Sunday, October 5th at Delaware Valley College. From there the Eagles will be hard at work practicing and preparing for the spring season. All signs seem to be saying that this could be a very special season for the women’s golf team. This team could truly challenge for the conference championship.
