BATH, Mich. – The Huntington women’s golf team wrapped up the year Tuesday at the Crossroads League Championships at Eagle Eye Golf Club where they finished ninth by firing a 1206 (392, 413, 401) over the two-day 54-hole event.

Betsy Schroeder paced the Foresters with a 269 (86, 91, 92) to finish 26th overall out of ## golfers. Leah Thompson finished in a tie for 30th by turning in a 276 (91, 88, 97). Sophie Frazier contributed a 325 (104, 122, 99) while Sarah Scott carded a 344 (111, 120, 113) and Alayna Steely added a 349 (122, 114, 113).

“This was a rough two days for our young team,” said Coach Pete Schownir. “I thought the morning round wasn’t too bad Monday but the afternoon round was awful.

“The weather turned and Eagle Eye is a tough enough course anyway. Tuesday was in the 40’s and windy, which led to high scores all over. When no one in the field breaks 80 in the final round, conditions are indeed difficult. Even though our team had nothing to play for, they still tried their best and their conduct was exceptional. I truly believe this program will jump up in the Crossroads League in the next couple of years.”

Sitting in third after the first round, Taylor came back to claim the league title by posting a 1007 followed by Indiana Wesleyan (1011), Marian (1012), Saint Francis (1014), Bethel (1048), Grace (1064), Spring Arbor (1119), Mount Vernon (1142) and HU (1206).
