The women's golf team's undefeated streak came to an end last weekend at the Williams Classic, where the team finished in eighth place in a field of 10. The men's team closed out its season at the NESCAC Qualifier, where it again fell short of qualifying for spring competition.

The Williams Classic, held at the demanding par-71, 5,826-yard Taconic Golf Club in Williamstown, Mass., featured the stiffest competition the Polar Bears faced this season.

Although the women's team's high hopes going into the weekend were left somewhat unfulfilled, the Polar Bears did receive several solid performances at their first-ever team performance at this tournament.

The team was led by Chelsea Gross '13, who carded 93 on Saturday and a 93 on Sunday en route to a 28th-place finish. Taylor Giuffre '14 (35th place, 206), Emily Quirk '14 (39th, 211), Samantha Shane '13 (41st, 216) and Chelsea Young '11 (45th, 239), all put forth a valiant effort.

According to Gross, "The tournament was a true test of how we could handle a mix of extra length, wind and hard greens."

And while last weekend marked the end of the young team's current season, the experience gained from playing in such a competitive tournament will surely be valuable when the Polar Bears begin anew next season.

The men's team, on the other hand, finished its season at the NESCAC Qualifier, which was hosted by Trinity College at Shuttle Meadow Golf Club in Kensington, Connecticut.

Like the women's team, the men's team faced a very strong field and ultimately did not qualify for the NESCAC Championship Tournament, which is held in the spring. The Polar Bears finished in ninth place out of 10 teams competing, carding a total of 653 for the weekend. Middlebury, who will now host in the spring, won the tournament with a score of 585, while Williams took second, tallying 597.

The team was led by first year Bobby Kaminski, who finished tied for 27th place with a weekend total of 159. Max Bridges '11 (31st, 161), Turner Kufe '11 (39th, 165), Johnny Bohorquez '13 (44th, 170) and Eric D'Elia '11 (45th, 173) rounded out the Bowdoin squad.
