Western steps into high gear
Layin' the spike down
Western sinks Lakehead's hopes
It was a hole-in-one for the Western Mustangs men's golf team, Oct. 14 and 16 at the OUA Championships at St. Andrew's Golf Course in Toronto.
The Mustangs used a balanced attack to bring home the hardware. Russ Armstrong finished with a cumulative score of 155 over two rounds, while Luke McGoey, Ryan Pope, Pat Lindsay and Erik Bradley tallied 157, 158, 159 and 161 respectively. Head coach and OUA coach of the year, Jim Waite, said the prowess of his squad lays in their overall depth.
"We only had one player on the second team all-star squad," Waite said. "But we were the only team with no results above 80 in the finals, therefore our balance was definitely a key."
Waite said the future is filled with promise. "Every player is only in their second year, plus I was forced to make a decision between four players for two spots in the finals. The future looks terrific."
