Women’s golf dominates the course, placing first at Cavalier Fall Invite


Tuesday proved to be a good day for the Gannon University women’s golf team, as the Knights traveled to Canton, Ohio, and placed first in a five-team field at the Cavalier Fall Invite, hosted by Walsh University.

As a team, Gannon shot 657 over two rounds of golf. The Knights beat the second-place team, host Walsh, by four strokes. Their first-round score of 326 was the best single-round score of any team throughout the event.

The Knights were led by Sarah White, who tied for first place individually in the tournament with Walsh’s Isabelle Castro. Both players shot a 158 over two rounds.

It has been a strong start to the season for White, as she placed second individually in the team’s first event of the year.

Her consistency carried her to the top of the leaderboard, as she was able to finish in the top five for scorers on par 3’s, 4’s and 5’s.

Gannon had three other top 10 finishers in Madison Gardner, who placed third after shooting 80-81-161; Ana Maestro (T-7th, 84-85-169) and Manuela Rincon (10th, 85-85-170).

It was the first top-10 finish for both Gardner and Rincon.

Roxanne Garceau also competed for Gannon and wound up tied for 15th after shooting 97-83-180.

Rounding out the top five teams were Mercyhurst University (693), Ohio Dominican University (714) and Walsh’s other team (781).

This was the second event for the Knights this fall, as they placed third in the Cumberland Trail Golf Classic earlier this month.

The team will be in action next Monday and Tuesday at the William Beall Fall Classic in Findlay, Ohio.
