Golf teams swing into spring season with Logger Invitational

Last week marked the spring season opener for the Logger golf teams.  The two day event ended with the women placing second and the men placing third out of five teams.

The first day of the Logger Invite ended with the women trailing 27 strokes behind Northern Idaho. The men were ranked third of five after the first round. This was due in part to the great performances of many of the members of both teams.

Matt Kitto sat third on the first day, leading the Logger men with a 72 (+1). Sarah Bicker played a strong game of gold leading the women 85 (+14).

However, Northern Idaho was in firm command of the team lead after posting a first round score of 375 (+91).

Bicker continued to lead the women on during the second round. She carded the two best rounds of the women’s tournament. Bicker finished strong with an overall score of 165 (+23) well ahead of Northern Idaho competitor Emily Thorud.

On the women’s side, Puget Sound and Northern Idaho carded identical scores of 363 the second day of the tournament, making the final two-round score for Puget Sound 765 (+197).

Northern Idaho’s final two-round score was 738 (+170) giving them them the overall victory ahead of the Loggers.

The men finished third after the cards were counted on the final day with a score of 615 (+47). Although the team placed third, Kitto placed second overall with an impressive 144 (+2) two-round score.

The Loggers will next hit the links at when they attend the PLU Invitational in Parkland, Wash. over spring break.
