SAUGATUCK, Mich. –Albion College gained strokes as it tries to catch Calvin College for sixth place in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association women's golf standings.

Entering Tuesday's jamboree at The Ravines, the Britons trailed the Knights by 20, but after finishing sixth with a 366 total, they are just four behind (1,105-1,109) in the seasonal standings.

Megan Moco and Madison Kroetsch produced fine rounds today with a 79 and 83, respectively. Moco, a sophomore from Grosse Ile, produced the best round of her young career as a Briton and moved into 14th in the MIAA individual standings with an 86.3-stroke average. Kroetsch, a sophomore from Novi, matched her career low.

"I'm proud of the excellent rounds for Moco and Kroetsch who played well under tough conditions. I feel like we're definitely working in the right direction and if we get four good scores from our players we can compete with any team," Head Coach Jordan McArleton said.

Madison Bowen and Kiley Flynn contributed to the team's score with rounds of 99 and 105, respectively.

"With the season only halfway done, there's a lot we can do to push forward and make things happen," McArleton said.

Hope College won the team tournament with a 322, just one stroke ahead of Olivet College. Sophomore Megan Klintworth was the medalist today with a solid round of 3-over par 75.

The next MIAA jamboree will be Oct. 1 at Pine River Country Club in Alma.
