Comet’s Trail Belles After Round One

The Saint Mary’s golf team dominated round one of the MIAA National Championship qualifier last weekend, finishing with all five scorers in the top eight, and topping defending MIAA champs Olivet by 13 strokes. Two more rounds will follow, and the team with the lowest combined score after all three will earn the MIAA’s automatic berth to the NCAA div. III women’s golf national championships.
