Jackie Mee closed the last four holes out strong on Tuesday, which was good enough for a second-place individual finish in the MSU Billings Yellowjacket Spring Invitational at the Pryor Creek Golf Club East of Billings.

"Jackie finished strong, but it wasn't quite enough to earn the individual win," golf coach Bennett MacIntyre said. "She had a great first tournament. She had a performance that she can build on."

The Carroll women finished in third place, just two strokes behind perennial Frontier power Rocky Mountain College.

On the men's side, Connor Hausauer hit a day-two 69 to finish in fifth place overall and lead the Saints to a third-place team finish.

"Conner shot a three-under 69 and snuck into the All-Tournament team," MacIntyre said. "He knocked off the rust that he had yesterday and really played well. I am excited to see what he can do the rest of the way."

The weather was great for March golf in Montana, and MacIntyre is happy about the way his team performed.

"We played really well for a team that hasn't been able to get out and get a lot of swings in," he said. "This is something to build off. The women were just edged out by Rocky, which has played already this year and usually dominates the conference. The men cut seven strokes off of their round in Day 2, which was also great to see. Overall, for tournament, I'm pretty happy about where we are."

Amanda Roberts finished in 10th place with a two-day total of 167 on the women's side and Colin Gunstream and Monday's team leader Justin Galiher tied for 10th with a two-day total of 151.

The Saints are off for a week before playing in Salt Lake City at the Westminster Invite on April 13-14.
