There were a couple of firsts for the Lancers Women’s Golf team at the Waterloo Invitational last weekend at the Cambridge Golf Club.
Lancer Meaghan Pototschnik fired her lowest competitive round to date, a two-under-par 70 that was also the low round of the day and gave the Stratford, Ont. native a second-place finish after the final day of competition.
The 2011 OUA champion opened with a first-round 79 and finished with a 149 total, one stroke from leader Devon Rizzo of the University of Waterloo.
Lancer Megan Whelan played a strong game with rounds of 83 and 84 for a 167 total.
She also recorded her first career hole-in-one on the 129th yard seventh hole.
Waterloo finished second as a team at the tournament, 18 strokes behind the University of Toronto.
On the men’s side, the eighth-place Lancers team were led by Mike Ayotte who shot a 69 on the second day of the event at Grey Silo Golf Course.
Ayotte finished tied for 13th overall with a 146 total. Also, Jeff Dent shot a two-day 150 total, Scott Reed carded 155, Connor Teno totalled 159 and Mike Duramakos shot 161.
The Lancers golf team competes Thursday at the McMaster Invitational then wraps up the OUA season this Sunday-Tuesday with the provincial championship in Waterloo at Grey Silo.
