Kenyon’s No. 19 golf team traveled to North Carolina on Monday and Tuesday to compete in the Gate City Invitational, where they finished in 16th place.

The first and second rounds took place on Monday, when the Owls shot a 302 and 305, respectively. On Tuesday, in the third round, the Owls shot a 304 to finish with a total of 911 strokes. Guilford College (N.C.) took home the trophy by collectively shooting an 852 over the three rounds.

Individually, Kenyon had mixed success. Armand Ouellette ’25 shot a 225 over three rounds, but Logan Spiess ’23 was able to finish the course in two fewer strokes. The two stroke difference placed Spiess in a tie for 44th place, while Ouellette was tied for 51st place. Will Hulsey ’26 placed 74th by using 231 strokes. Griffin Ward ’24 and Garrett Thesing ’24 used the same number of strokes (236) to tie for 83rd place.

There will be two more tournaments this fall before the Owls rest up for the busy spring season.
