Men’s and women’s golf set for spring

Union’s women’s golf team recently placed fourth in the Ninth Annual Start to Finish Classic hosted by Webber International in Lake Wales, Fla.

Lindsay McRee, a freshman athletic training major from Murfreesboro, finished seventh overall in the two-round tournament.

Katie Smith, senior nursing major, placed 18th, while freshman athletic training major Kara Glover placed 19th.

Freshman business major Ann Elizabeth Lynch placed 21st, and junior business administration management major Rachel Clardy placed 25th.

“The overall experience of the tournament was wonderful. It has been one of my favorites so far,” Clardy said.

Both the men’s and women’s golf teams competed Monday and Tuesday in the Spring Hill Invitational in Mobile, Ala. The men are in second place, and the women are in fifth place after the first round.

“When you play golf, there’s always something that can be improved [on at] your next game,” Clardy said, adding that by pinpointing one to two things that need improvement, each player should excel at the invitational.

In addition, the men had high expectations for the Spring Hill Invitational.

“I’d be lying to you if I said I didn’t expect to win, especially from a team perspective,” said senior sports management major Brett Barry. “We have the best team that I’ve had in my four years here. We’re more talented and consistent than any team I’ve been on.”

“Even if the national championship was in the fall, we still have a lot to prove in the spring. There may not be a prize at the end of the road but, ultimately, we still have something to prove and still need to set the program off on a good foot.”
