Lady 'Cats Fourth, Bobcats Sixth at MEC Championships

DANIELS – The West Virginia Wesleyan's women are holding onto fourth place after day two of the Mountain East Conference Women's Golf Championships at the Glade Springs Resort.

With three individuals in the top ten, the Lady Bobcats are posting some low numbers on the leaderboard.

Katie Casey is holding onto fourth place overall after a round two 85 (165 total).

She is followed closely by Sandra Brink in seventh after a round of 86 (172) and Becca Davis in ninth after a round of 85 (173).

Keenan Moreta sits in 35th after shooting a 116 for a two day tally of 225. Gabby Saygers closed the Lady Bobcat scorecard with a round of 142.

The University of Charleston remains on top with a total score of 678, a comfortable 28 shots ahead of second place Notre Dame who shows a tally of 706. Wheeling Jesuit is in third at 715. Wesleyan's total of 735 is 16 points ahead of fifth place UVa.-Wise.

"We are still fourth but we moved up individually," remarked head coach James Huber. "The ladies are handling the course well."

Meanwhile, the West Virginia Wesleyan's men sit in sixth place after day two of the Mountain East Conference Men's Golf Championships.

Wesleyan enjoyed a sterling round two with four different players shooting in the 70's.

Nick West fired a 73 to move up into the 12th place among individuals.

James Snavely fired a 79 to sit at 21st place overall, Nicholas Casingal shot a 79 to move into 24th, and John Huggins delivered a 77 to move up to 31st.

Ryan Holcomb rounded out the Bobcat roster with a round of 84 to settle into 41st.

"We had several guys make some major improvements today," Huber said. "It is a tough course and we executed some shots today that we did not do in the First Round. The older guys on the team were saying it had been several years since we put four guys in the 70's in the same round. This was a solid performance...we just need to keep it going tomorrow."

Wesleyan, even though they are in sixth place, sits only 23 strokes of tournament co-leaders Shepherd and Charleston (602). Wheeling and West Liberty are right behind, tied at 605. UVa.-Wise is still in the hunt at 608 and the Bobcats are next at 625.

Final round action takes place Wednesday morning at Glade Springs Resort.
