Bitter-sweet end for some Cardinal golfers

The Saint Mary’s University men’s and women’s golf teams competed in the MIAC Championships in early October to conclude their seasons, marking the last round for team seniors as Cardinals.

Both Cardinal teams finished 10th in the conference.

Despite the disappointing end, seniors feel that they put forth their best effort and had a good season, said senior Lauren Ulbrich.

“For me, I had my record best this year which was an awesome way to end."

Offering insight to up-and-coming freshman golfers, Ulbrich said, "Practice in the off season—it pays off. Then go out there and have fun."

The men's team had a group that hit well and got along with each other, said senior David Borgen. “We could have done better in the MIAC for our senior year, but we each improved our average team score over the course of the season.”

Defeating Carleton College last year during former coach Jeff Stangl’s final season was one of Borgen’s favorite golf memories. Taking third in the Wartburg tournament was an overall team high on the season.
