The first Canadian Collegiate Athletic Asociation (CCAA) national golf rankings of the season have been released and they favour last season's team winners; the Humber Hawks men and the Durham Lords women, both competing in Ontario's OCAA league.
The Humber Hawks have claimed the men’s team gold for the past three years, while the Durham Lords have won the women’s team gold twice in row. Both are currently ranked first in the CCAA golf national rankings.
B.C.’s PACWEST have hosted two of their four conference tournaments, which saw the UBC Okanagan Heat top both women’s team competitions. The men’s team competitions have seen both the Camosun Chargers and Fraser Valley Cascades place first; Camosun currently claims the lowest cumulative score.
The first ACAC tournament was a clean sweep for the MacEwan Griffins in the men’s and women’s team and individual competitions. Other participants included the Olds Broncos (after a five-year hiatus) and two athletes representing the Concordia Thunder.
It may be difficult for Quebec’s RSEQ to replace Josée Doyon; the two-time CCAA women’s individual national champion no longer attends Champlain - St Lawrence. Last year the Champlain - St. Lawrence Lions were the only RSEQ institution to attend the 2011 PING CCAA Golf National Championships; this year it’s expected additional institutions will compete as individuals.
As 2011 hosts the ACAA’s Holland Hurricanes did well on their home turf of P.E.I. and claimed silver in the men’s team competition. They return to the links for the first ACAA golf tournament on Saturday, September 22.
The CCAA national golf rankings will be updated on Tuesday, September 25 and Tuesday, October 9.
The 2012 PING CCAA Golf National Championships will be hosted October 15-19, 2012 at the Oshawa Golf & Curling Club in Oshawa, Ont
