With the second day of the OCAA golf championships at FireRock Golf Club in Komoka in the books, the Fanshawe Falcons are making history.

In the women’s division, Alyssa Stoddart of Orangeville, Ont. is poised to become the first Falcons’ female golfer to win the Ontario title. She followed her first-round 82 with an 80 today, again under wet conditions, for a two-day total of 162 (+16), 14 strokes ahead of Hayley McCallum of the Humber Hawks who is +30 (92-84–176).

Fanshawe’s Mery Tarigan shot back-to-back rounds of 92 for a two-day total of 184, good for third place.

The top two scores count in team competition. The Falcons are 18 strokes better than Humber, the only other team entered.

There are two competitors, from St. Lawrence and Seneca colleges, competing as individuals. Amye Pellow of Mohawk College WD.

Fanshawe’s female golf squad has won OCAA bronze twice, in 2006-07 and 2007-08. They’ve never medalled at the CCAA championship. But Stoddart will have gold on her mind following tomorrow’s round. The CCAAs go Oct. 16-19 at Medicine Hat College, Alta. at Desert Bloom Golf Club.

On the men’s side, Fanshawe will eye OCAA gold tomorrow when they tee up in the final round just three strokes behind leader Humber, who lead in overall points 593 to 596.

Fanshawe’s Braydon White of Barrie, Ont. shot a second-round even-par 71 for a two-day total of 141 (-1), just a stroke ahead of Humber’s Cameron Griffin (74-71–142). The Falcons’ Thomas Code of London sits T3 with rounds of 71-75 (+4).
