This past weekend, it was “Tiger Time” as men’s and women’s golf teams from the North Coast Athletic Conference converged on Mansfield for the NCAC Fall Preview.
A member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Division III, the NCAC features championship competition in 23 sports — 11 for men and 12 for women. The Conference includes ten competitive small colleges and universities in the Midwest.
After taking a seven-stroke lead into the clubhouse on Sunday, the Wittenberg Tigers ran away with the men’s title on Monday, winning the tournament by 13 strokes. As a team, the Tigers carded rounds of 297-299, for a grand score of 596 (+20). Wittenberg finished ahead of Kenyon College (+33) and Ohio Wesleyan (+44).
Backed by five top-eight finishers, the DePauw Tigers women’s team finished with a 664 and won its third tournament of the fall as it finished 14 strokes ahead of Wittenberg.
Westbrook Country Club features a golf course built in 1922 by noted architect Donald Ross. Ross completed some 385 course designs in his lifetime, and was the first President of the American Society of Golf Course Architects.
