Ancilla’s Schumacher 25th, Shaneyfelt 27th at Western Conference Championship

May 2, 2011

COLDWATER, MI – Ancilla College golfers Zach Schumacher and Skye Shaneyfelt finished 25th and 27th, respectively, at the MCCAA Western Conference Championship.

The tournament concluded play on Friday with the final two rounds held at The Golf Club of Coldwater.  The first two rounds of play were held one week earlier at Bedford Valley Golf Club in Battle Creek, MI.

Schumacher struggled in his final two rounds, shooting 86 and 88 to fall short of a top-20 finish.

His overall score of 343 for the tournament put him at 55-over-par, 39 total strokes behind medalist Alex Fleming of Grand Rapids Community College.

Shaneyfelt struggled with his opening round on Friday, shooting 92.  He came back with a season-low score of 86 on the final 18 holes to finish with a total score of 362.

“Skye and Zach didn’t play as good as they were capable of, but competed well,” said Ancilla golf coach Marc Hayden.  “They’re using those two rounds to prepare for the state tournament play.”

Tyler Jackson, who missed the opening two rounds at Bedford Valley, returned to the links on Friday for the Chargers.  He struggled in his opening round with a 103, but shot much better in the afternoon with a career best 87.

“That was very rewarding to see out of T.J., because he has that ability,” said Hayden.

Grand Rapids claimed the Western Conference championship with a composite score of 1,249.  They were followed by Jackson Community College (1,254), Kalamazoo Valley Community College (1,271), and Muskegon Community College (1,277).
