Bellevue College’s men’s and women’s golf team came out sizzling hot to start off the 2014-15 golf season with convincing team wins on both sides at the Skagit Cardinal Classic held at Avalon GC in Burlington, WA. The men cruised to a 2-stroke win while the women topped second place Spokane by 46 strokes. The dominating wins are an early indication that Head Coach Bryan Stevens has recruited a frontline group of golfers that are ready to contend for the NWAC title in May. Chad Hall earned medalist honors and went low on day one firing a 5-under par 67 on the 6,500 yard track. He bested fellow teammate Taylor Smith by one shot as Smith carded a 4-under par round of 68. Both shot 75 on day two to finish one-two in the individual standings. Jack Strickland played consistently both days shooting 74-74 while Max Tuckner carded a two-day total of 154 (78-76) to round out Bellevue’s scoring. On the women’s side, freshmen Kendra Meeker (88-80) and Meg McMullen (81-88) led Bellevue’s team and also got help from another freshman Dana Fox who shot 88-84. The three Bulldog newcomers finished fourth-fifth-sixth overall in the individual. It was the balanced attack of the three freshmen propelled Bellevue to the large margin of victory.
