Megan Zalewski fired an 86 and Hailey Ingleson shot an 87. Each team’s top three golfers have their scores combined to give a team score. Queen’s score of 244 was good for top spot.

Sailing places fifth

The sailing team finished fifth out of 18 university teams at the Ocean County College fall regatta last weekend in New Jersey, behind teams from the U.S. Naval Academy, Penn State University, Cornell University and St. Mary’s College of Maryland. They earned 73 points against them in the A division, the third-best total of any team, and 111 points against in the B division races. Queen’s was the only Canadian school in the regatta. The team will travel to Geneva, New York this weekend for their next regatta.

Baseball goes three for four

The men’s baseball team won three of their four weekend games in a homestand at Megaffin Park. On Saturday, they beat the St. Clair Saints 4-3 in their opening game and 9-8 in the second match of the double-header. Graham Fulton got three hits in seven at-bats over the two games, while Darcy Masterson went one-for-four with five walks, a double and three runs batted in.

On Sunday, the Gaels clobbered the York Lions 10-0 in their opening game. Stephen McDonald threw six innings of shutout ball, only allowing two hits, while Todd Larson led the team offensively with a home run, two walks, a sacrifice fly and five runs batted in just four plate appearances. The Lions rebounded in the second game, beating Queen’s 8-5 despite a three-for-four performance by Fulton with two home runs and three runs batted in.

This weekend, Queen’s will go on the road to face the Saints in a double-header Saturday and the Lions in two games Sunday.
