Gold for Lee, silver for Heat

Carolyn Lee wins national women's college golf championship, leads UBC Okanagan to second place

UBC Okanagan golfer Carolyn Lee capped off the 2015 collegiate golf season in style, capturing the women’s title at the  PING CCAA national golf championships.

The Calgary product closed out the season-ending tournament with a 2-under par 74 to close with 213 score (+13) at the Chilliwack Golf & Country Club.

Lee’s eight-shot victory also paced the Heat women to a silver medal in team competition.

“It has been a pleasure to watch Carolyn Lee lead the team and to be a part of her journey of self-belief in her golf,” said Cass Hritzuk, third-year coach for the Heat following the week’s results.

“This win is unreal,” said Lee who shot 79-76-74 over three days. “”Cass and Robert (Letvinchuck, assistant coach) really helped me get in the right mindset for the week.”

Lee has been a CCAA all-star selection in each of the last two years.

Heat teammates Lauren Siemers finished 10th overall, while Emily Adams was 16th. The threesome helped UBC Okanagan finish second, eight strokes back of Humber College.

In men’s competition, the Heat finished seventh overall.

James Casorso was the top UBCO golfer tying for 15th place with a three round score of 3-over par.

Casey Sullivan and Ollie Rizun tied for 22nd place, while  Jacob Stewart and Grant Dollevoet rounded out the Heat team.

“We’re so proud of the way everyone on our team has played this entire year,” coach Hritzuk said. “The men’s team played solid golf all week with the exception of a few holes that took them out of medal contention. As for the women, [the coaching staff] is not in the least bit surprised at their outstanding result.”
