PHOENIX -- After the first day at the Frontier Conference golf championships Tuesday, the Carroll College women find themselves in position to claim Wednesday's team title at Ahwatukee Country Club on Phoenix.
The Saints shot a two-round score of 670, the second-best score of the day behind leader Lewis-Clark State (655). The Carroll men, however, find themselves in fourth place (620), well behind first-place LCSC (582)
Jackie Mee paced Carroll's women, who had the best first-round score (336), and are in contention to win the individual title. Her two-round score of 159 trails Rocky Mountain College's Kyle Clancy (153) and LCSC's Karina Davila (155).
"We've never been in this spot before," coach Bennett MacIntyre said. "We knew that the team had a performance like this in them but we have surprised a lot of people. We're in second place, anything can happen but if things go our way we could bring home the first conference title in school history."
On the men's side, Chase Daskalos leads the Saints with a nine-over-par 153 which has him in the No. 15 spot. Rocky Mountain College's Daniel Thompsett (142) is in first place.
"It was one of those days when things just didn't go our way," MacIntyre said. "Our seniors and junior struggled. If you want to be in the mix that can't happen and unfortunately for us we weren't at our best."
The two-day tournament wraps up on Wednesday.
