GRIZZLIES BATTLE THROUGH ROUND THREE AT CHAMPIONSHIPS

The Georgian Grizzlies men's and women's teams faced another day of stiff competition on day three of the Canadian University/College Golf Championships at the Tangle Creek Golf & Country Club in Barrie on Wednesday.

Georgian's Matt Lemay (Waterloo) had his best round of the Championships shooting a 2-over 73. He currently sits in a tie for 10th place and is the lone Grizzlies golfer to make the cut for the final round.

He sits 10 strokes behind the tournament leader Evan Holmes of the UBC Thunderbirds heading into the final day of play.

Brady Zordan (Midhurst) also had his best round of the tournament shooting a 74 and sits tied for 43rd, while Jon Collins (Fergus) finished tied for 63rd, Jeff Ash (Barrie) tied for 89th and Mitchell Ahrens (Peterborough) rounds out Georgian's contingent in 98th.

Overall the men's team was able to move up a few spots on the final day to finish 13th overall.

The women's team had a particularly tough challenge on Wednesday.

After a weather delay during day two, the women's team was unable to finish their round before play was halted due to darkness.

In the end the women's team finished in seventh place just four strokes behind the Western Mustangs who secured the final team spot on the cut line.

Addison Wallwin (Barrie) was the top placing Georgian golfer in 11th place overall, narrowly missing the cut for the final round.

Emilie Tyndall (Kirkland, QC) finished tied for 24th, Sady Beelik (Pefferlaw) tied for 32nd and Chloe Wells (Mississauga) finished in 38th.
