HELENA, Mont. - Carroll College Senior Jackie Mee defeated MSU-Billings’ Haley Shackelford in a playoff hole to win the individual title at the MSUB Yellowjacket Fall Invitation at the Pryor Creek Golf Course in Huntley, Mont. With the effort, Mee earned Frontier Conference Women’s Player of the Week Honors.

Mee shot a 78 in less than ideal conditions Friday but followed that round with a tournament-low 75 Saturday to force the playoff. She won the playoff hole and led her team to a third place finish at the invitational.

The Saints play the Great Falls Invitational Monday and Tuesday.

HUNTLEY, Mont. – Carroll College Senior Jackie Mee defeated MSU-Billings’ Haley Shackelford in a playoff hole to win the individual title at the MSUB Yellowjacket Fall Invitation at the Pryor Creek Gold Course in Huntley, Mont.

Mee shot a 78 in less than ideal conditions Friday but followed that round with a tournament-low 75 Saturday to force the playoff. She won the playoff hole and led her team to a third place finish at the invitational.

On the men’s side, Colin Gunstream shot a second–round 71 to move into a three-way tie for fourth place in the tournament and Conner Hausauer shot a two-day 149 to finish seventh overall.

The two top-ten finishes helped the Saints finish third in the tournament behind Division II MSU Billings and Rocky Mountain College.

The Saints return to action Monday and Tuesday at the University of Great Falls Invitational.

BILLINGS, Mont. – Conner Hausauer hit a tournament low 65 Monday to lead the Carroll College men’s golf team to a second place finish at the Rocky Mountain College Invitation at the Yegan Golf Club in Billings.

The Saint women also placed second in the tournament, paced by Jackie Mee with a fourth place finish of 238 and Katie Goins who finished fifth with a 239.

Hausauer’s Monday round tied for the lowest single round in Carroll College history.

The Saints placed three golfers in the men’s top six. Along with Hausauer’s third-place finish, Freshmen Chace Daskalos placed fifth and Austin Egan tied for sixth.

“It is exciting to see the freshmen step up and play well against a great field,” head coach Bennett MacIntyre said. “Conner played like the senior leader he is with that round today but we are going to need the freshmen to continue to play well for us to compete for the title.”

The Saint men played better throughout the tournament. They posted a 292 in the first round, a 286 in the second round and a 281 in the final round, one shot better than Rocky Mountain third-round 282. Rocky took the overall title with a 842 compared to Carroll’s 859.

“It was big for to beat Rocky today,” MacIntyre said. “The may be the best team in the conference but I think we can compete with them if we get a better effort through all three rounds.”

The Saint women struggled in the second round but played well Monday to post a 327, their best round of the tournament.

“Jackie (Mee) struggled yesterday but she really rebounded today and had a strong finish,” MacIntyre said. “Katie (Goins) was really consistent throughout the tournament.”

Rocky Mountain took home the team trophy with a team score of 967. The Saints finished with a 998, 57 shots under third-place Great Falls.

The Saints return to Billings on Oct 2-3 for their next event, the MSU-Billings Yellow Jacket Fall Invitational.

The Carroll College men's and women's golf teams will kick off their respective season on Monday at the Montana Tech Invitational, set to be played at the Butte Country Club. The Saints will play 36 holes on Monday and another 18 to finish on Tuesday. For both teams it will mark the start of a season with high expectations.

The Carroll men come into 2014 having finished second at last year's Frontier Conference tournament, missing a trip to nationals by just a few strokes. Team captain Connor Hausauer, though, did earn a spot at the national championships as an individual. He also made that trip with the team in 2012 as an observer.
