On Monday and Tuesday, the Owls competed against five other teams in the Western Pennsylvania Intercollegiate in Sewickley Heights, Pennsylvania. The tournament took place at Allegheny Country Club, a par-70 course. The inclement weather proved to be tough, and Tuesday’s tee times were pushed back due to a frost delay. Kenyon finished in fifth place with 617 strokes.

Will Hulsey ’26 once again had a strong showing for the Owls. He tied for fifth in the entire competition of around 40 golfers. On day one, Hulsey got off to a rough start, shooting a 74. “I had a bad start to the tournament, starting +3 through my first 3 holes, and I was able to put that behind me and finish strong,” he wrote in an email to the Collegian. On day two, Hulsey moved up nine spots by shooting a 71. Garrett Thesing ’24 had the next best score on the team, finishing the tournament with 151 (72, 79) strokes. 

“It was a battle,” Hulsey said of the tournament. “It was a super tough golf course with some of the coldest, windiest conditions we have played in this year. We were a little disappointed in the moment with our finish, but in hindsight we have a lot to be proud of.” 

Kenyon will look to defend its title in the NCAC Championships from April 28-30 in Westfield Center, Ohio.
