The beneficiaries of one of the most beautiful springs in recent memory, the St. Olaf men’s and women’s golf teams ended their spring seasons this past weekend.

For the Ole men, it was a season that saw some encouraging progress for a number of golfers. On Saturday and Sunday at the Saint John's Spring Invitational in Becker, Minn., the Oles finished with a first round score of 314, their lowest total of the season.

The men finished 13th of 14 teams overall, with Tucker Weisman ‘08 shooting a two-round score of 154 and Bob Hunter ‘08 totaling 160.

Mack Traynor ‘09 finished with a final score of 161.

On the women’s side, St. Olaf finished a solid third out of six teams at the MWCGA State Championships. The Oles’ combined team score of 688 was their best mark in six seasons.

Paige Bromen ‘08 continued her strong play by placing second overall at the meet, shooting a two-round score of 156 (including a final round of 77 on Sunday). Bromen, whose score set a school record (dating back to 2000), has emerged as the team’s top athlete after transfering from Division I Furman University in Janurary.

Kate Solheim ‘09 shot a second round 84 and Amy Springer ‘08 an 89 to finish 13th and 19th, respectively.

The Oles' second round 342 was also a school record.
