Cascades continue to roll in Round 2

Maddie Kapchinsky rallied in Round 2 to take the women’s individual lead on Wednesday at CCAA nationals.

The University of the Fraser Valley golf teams continued to roll in Round 2 at the PING CCAA National Championships, maintaining leads in all four divisions at the tournament’s midway point.

The Cascades lead the men’s and women’s team standings, and Daniel Campbell and Maddie Kapchinsky top the table in the men’s and women’s individual competitions, respectively.

Kapchinsky fired arguably the round of the day, a one-over 73 that enabled her to vault from eighth place at the start of the day all the way to first. She’s at +17 through 36 holes, one stroke up on teammate and first-round leader Emery Bardock and Sarah-Eve Rheame of the Champlain St. Lawrence Lions. UFV’s Hannah Dirksen (T4, +21) gives the Cascades three of the top five in the women’s field, and naturally, the Cascades (+32) hold a nine-stroke lead over the Georgian Grizzlies (+43) in the team race.

On the men’s side, the Cascades’ Daniel Campbell (-1) and Zach Olson (+3) are one-two in the men’s individual standings, and Kyle Claggett (T7, +9) gives UFV three men in the top 10. The Cascades (+26) maintained their lead over UBC Okanagan (+31) in the overall team standings, but saw their advantage shrink by four strokes on Day 2.

The tournament continues Thursday and Friday at Royal Ashburn Golf Club in Whitby, Ont. The Cascades are seeking to become just the second program to sweep all four divisions at the championship; the feat was previously accomplished by the Humber Hawks in 2007.
