COLUMBIA, Ky. – The Bryan College women’s golf team faced its first competition of the fall 2019 season on Monday and Tuesday under first-year head coach, Jake Goins, as the Lions competed in the Blue Raider Fall Kick Off at the 5,864-yard Pines Golf Club hosted by Mid-South Conference foe Lindsey Wilson College.

 

Freshman Alisa Marie Caraballo impressed in her collegiate debut, as she produced a 77 on day one and 78 on day two for a 155 total, which sealed 3rd-place individually in a field of 29 talented golfers. Caraballo’s effort paced the Lions in the opening round, but it was junior Taylor Williams who shot the low score on day two carding a 77.

The dynamic duo of Caraballo and Williams led Bryan to an 11-stroke improvement on the latter round to move from 6thto 4th-place on the team leaderboard.

 

The squad had a slow start with a 340 showing on day one, but they teed off with determination on the final day en route to a 330 for a 670 two-day score in the tournament. The 330 mark matched the Lion’s best team score recorded last year. Williams posted a top-10 finish in 8thwith an 81 and 77 for 158. Freshman Mya Blevins trailed with an 89 and 85 for 174, good for 21st-place. Senior Emily Hutson and freshman Makenzie Cox rounded out the group with a 183 and 212, respectively.

 

Host school Lindsey Wilson captured the team victory with a 317 and 302 for a 619 total. While Union College (Ky.) came in 3rdas a team, Bulldog Whitney Messer individually won the event with a 72 and 76 for a 148.

 

The strong performance by the Lions to open their campaign is a promising sign for the young team. “I am proud of how Alisa Marie played in her first collegiate competition,” said Coach Goins. “It is quite an achievement to finish 3rdin a player’s first tournament amongst a field of highly skilled competitors. It was also great to see Taylor turn in a solid performance. Our 330 score is a good start and gives us some momentum going into our first home event next weekend at Cumberland Bear Trace, Sept. 23-24. When we add senior Daniella Banda back in the lineup, she will only bolster our already very strong team, and I look forward to seeing how we do.”

The Wheel Tax Wouldn't Be A Sacrifice And Supports Our Teachers - And Response (7)

I appreciate our underpaid teachers here in Tennessee so much. We as a whole have a moral obligation to make sure we contribute to their pay. A wheel tax on our cars is a minimal expense to most of us. Sixty dollars is not enough for us to complain. We shouldn't even bat an eye at that if it contributes to the hard working teachers who sacrifice daily for our children. We ... (click for more)
