Senior Sams Lead Oxy Golf Past Macalester

Senior Sams Lead Oxy Golf Past Macalester

INDUSTRY HILLS -- The Occidental women's and men's golf teams were both victorious today in their dual match against Macalester College on Friday. 

The Tigers were led by their two Senior Sams. Women's co-captain Samantha Rocha shot an 87, men's co-captain Samuel Miller shot a 74 on the difficult Pacific Palms Resort course. 

"It's a tough course," Oxy head coach Will Morris said. "You have to keep the ball in good position and the greens are very difficult. None of our players had played here before, I thought we performed quite well given it was our first experience at the course."

Sophomore Jack Moeller shot a season best 78, which included a fine back nine of 36.

The Tiger men return to action Monday in the prestigious West Cup.  The Tiger women travel to Pebble Beach next weekend to play in the UC Santa Cruz Invitational.
