Foresters Finish Second at Aldeen Preview

Sophomore Kaitlyn Gray and freshman Amanda Lee tied for sixth place overall and led the Lake Forest College women's golf team to a runner-up finish at the Aldeen Preview on Sunday.

The event was held at Aldeen Golf Club in Rockford, Illinois, which will also serve as the host of the three-day Midwest Conference Championship Tournament that starts on Friday.

the Foresters top two players needed 86 shots to complete the 5,801-yard, par-73 course. Gray started her day with a par and had six more in her round, which also included a birdie on the par-4 13th hole. Lee's round included eight pars, including three in a row on both the front and back nine.

Freshman Faith Jung was next on the team with an 89 while freshman Emily Argersinger finished at 93, junior Anhayte Guajardo at 95, and sophomore Cece Cruz at 99.

Lake Forest's team score of 354 was 25 strokes behind first-place Grinnell College, three ahead of Illinois College, and 19 clear of Monmouth College.

Next weekend's MWC Championships will be the final event of the Foresters' fall schedule. The team finished fifth in the league in 2014, the program's first year as a varsity sport, before climbing a spot in the standings to fourth in 2015 and moving up one more position to third last year.
