Season review: Golf team broke new ground in 2007

Kurt Schuler '10

Whitney Roller '10

Fall 2007 became a special golf season at Bates College, for both the men and women on the squad.

The Bates men won their third CBB Championship in the past five years, defeating Bowdoin by seven strokes and Colby by 15 with a five-player cumulative score of 414 at Brunswick Golf Club. Their fourth-place finish (out of 12) at the Bowdoin Invitational and fourth-place finish (out of 12) at the State of Maine Championship were Bates' highest finishes in years. Kurt Schuler '10 earned All-State honors and was medalist at the Sid Farr Tournament at Waterville Country Club. With only captain Jake Cox graduating, the Bobcats will field a powerful squad in 2008.

The Bates women enjoyed an undefeated season, with numerous tournament wins over rivals Bowdoin and Colby. Whitney Roller '10 was dominant all season, with three medalist honors to her name. Liz Wilcox '09 registered a career competition best when she won medalist honors in the Bobcats' home match against Bowdoin, while newcomer Christine McCall '11 showed great promise.
