Chargers Take Eleventh at Egypt Valley

April 12, 2011

ADA, MI – The Ancilla College golf team finished eleventh at the Grand Rapids Community College Invitational, held at Egypt Valley Country Club on Monday.

The Chargers shot 385 as a team, led by freshman Zach Schumacher’s round of 88, nine strokes behind medalist Ty Nunn of Grand Rapids Community College.

Golfers found the conditions very challenging on the day, as winds ranged from 30 to 40 miles per hour on an Egypt Valley course that is over 7,000 yards in length.

“Seven thousand-plus yards of any golf course in 30 to 40 mile per hour winds is going to cause a lot of havoc for even the great golfers,” said Ancilla golf coach Marc Hayden.

Tyler Jackson finished with a score of 98 on the day, followed by Nic Caban with 99 and Skye Shaneyfelt with 100.

“Nic, Skye, Ty and Zach are staying positive and know better rounds lie ahead as the weather improves and they continue to get more golf played,” said Hayden.

Oakland Community College took top team honors, shooting 327 on the day.  They were followed by Mott Community College (328), Grand Rapids Community College (328), Saint Clair County Community College (335), Kalamazoo Valley Community College (339), Schoolcraft College (343), Jackson Community College (351), Muskegon Community College (356), Henry Ford Community College (369), Kirtland Community College (383), and Ancilla.
