According to an Oct. 19 Fanshawe Athletics press release, the College’s Alyssa Stoddart finished in third place in the women’s individual event. This is the first ever national golf medal won by a Fanshawe falcon.
The press release also said Stoddart set a Fanshawe record for best score in her weekend of play leading to her third place finish. She shot plus-17 throughout the tournament and shot 3-under par 69 on day three. At the end of the weekend, Stoddart was named a CCAA tournament all-star. Alongside Mery Tarigan, the duo finished in sixth place overall in the women’s team event.
Colin Robertson, head coach of the men’s and women’s golf teams, spoke about Stoddart’s successes throughout the season.
“Alyssa Stoddart won three of four regular season tournaments and the women’s individual OCAA [Ontario Colleges Athletic Association] championship title, a first for Fanshawe,” Robertson said. “Alyssa and Mery Tarigan made up the women’s team and won the women’s team gold at the OCAA championships.”
Robertson also said that the Fanshawe men’s and women’s golf teams are now ranked top 10 nationally.
In addition to Stoddart’s success at the CCAA golf championship, the men’s team finished in fifth place in the men’s team event.
