The Voyageurs Men's Golf team, and lone female member, headed to eastern Ontario to begin the 2017 season and came home with a number of medals.
The weekend started with the Carleton Invite in Kanata at the Loch March Golf & Country Club, site of this year's OUA Championships in October, and the team fared extremely well, shooting a combined 315, good enough for 2nd place. Liam Hamlin led the way with a 76, putting him 2nd in the individual standings. Gracen Lacko, in her first ever OUA event, shot a 105, qualifying her for the OUA Championships.
On Sunday the team headed west to Kingston for the Queen's Invite at Cataraqui Golf & Country Club. Despite knocking nine strokes off their combined score, firing a 306, the team finished 6th. Lacko fired a 92 to finish T-10th.
The teams wrapped up their trip with a stop at the UOIT Invite at the Oshawa Golf & Curling Club. The men's team got back onto the podium, finishing 2nd with a 311. Dale Valade led the way, earning a silver medal of his own after shooting a 75 to finish T-2nd. Lacko shot a 94 to finish in 4th on the women's side.
The teams will hit the links again September 30th when they tee off in the Waterloo/Laurier Invitational.
