Lancer golfer claims provincial bronze

Lancer Bryce Evon finished third, shooting 72 in both rounds of the Ontario University Athletics golf championship tournament last weekend in Kanata. He won a first-team all-star berth; Melanie Burgess and Tavia Maurovic each earned second-team all-star recognition on the women’s side.

Windsor’s men finished ninth as a team; the women finished fourth and qualified to compete in the national tournament in British Columbia in May. The women’s total was just one stroke off a bronze-medal pace. Head coach Adam Wagner said the close finish was disappointing.

“That’s golf,” he said. “Every shot counts and in this case this statement stands true. A tough reality to realize, but certainly a learning experience for the girls to never give up on a shot or hole because they all count.”
