BATTLE CREEK, Mich. – The Albion College men's golf team is celebrating its lowest round since 2010, and it couldn't have picked a better time.
Led by Soti Michalos with a career-best 71, Albion finished with a 297 total in the first Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Jamboree of the season. The round was played at the Bedford Valley Country Club.
"The team did a great job of staying away from big numbers, meaning, nothing worse than bogey<" Coach Jordan McArleton said. "They smartly managed their way around a difficult golf course, and that made all the difference. It allowed our birdies to be more meaningful. It was a well executed day."
Albion finished fourth in the team standings behind Hope College (286), Calvin College (292) and Trine University (294). Adrian College and Kalamazoo College finished a stroke behind the Britons.
The Britons will head to The Grande in Jackson, Mich., for Friday and Saturday rounds in an invitational hosted by Adrian College.
