VICTORIA, B.C. – The University of Victoria Vikes men’s and women’s golf teams had an outstanding Day 2 performance at the Canadian University/College golf national championship hosted May 26-29 at Cutten Fields in Guelph, Ont. Fifth-year Vike Brynn Tomie took charge on the women’s side, moving up to second place after her second round after shooting a 72, tied with Queen’s player Robyn Campbell at 8-over par, 150 overall. First-year Vike Mike Griffin is also in good standing for the men’s side, currently sitting third overall with a 2-over par, 142 combined score.

Tomie’s strong performance helped the Vikes women climb the ranks to third spot, currently 46-over par, 472 after two rounds. Toronto took advantage of pristine early morning conditions to combine for a team total of 238 to take the second round lead. Thanks to the strong play from all four members of the Varsity Blues, Toronto have a one stroke lead over Montreal (234-235–469), while the Vikes had the best showing on the day to sit four shots back in third.

“It was a good bounce back round by the women this morning,” said Vikes head coach Justin Clews following Day 2 play. “Playing conditions were difficult with some wind but the girls persevered and gained shots on the leaders. It was a very, very solid round by Brynn, leapfrogging her into second-place overall. The girls are in a great mindset heading into [Round 3] with the weather conditions looking to be sunny with less wind for their mid morning tee times.”

Leading the charge for the Varsity Blues women was Laura Upenieks, a PHD graduate who shot 78. Sitting at 15 over par, Upenieks is in a four-way tie for seventh place in the individual championship, sharing that spot with her three teammates. The strong consistent play of the four women allowed them to break their first round tie with the defending University of British Columbia (UBC) Thunderbirds, who slipped to fourth.

Individually, Caroline Ciot stumbled with a six over par round, but maintained her hold on first place. Advancing up the leaderboard was Tomie who shot a day low of 72 with four birdies. The Bedford, N.S., native’s strong second day gives her a two-round total of 150 – one shot back of the lead and a share of second with Robyn Campbell, a fifth-year Queen’s University student who matched her opening round 75.

Vikes rookie Brianna Carrels is currently tied for 11th with a pair of T-Birds after shooting an 81 in Round 2. Carrels is 16-over par, 158 overall. Vike Michaela Abey is sitting tied for 23rd after improving her opening round score by 10 strokes to card a 79 and improve her two-round total to 26-over, 168. Laura Ferreira was the next lowest Vike, currently tied at 27th with 28-over par, 170, after shooting her second-straight round of 85.

On the men’s side, the Vikes men are in good standing, currently third with a team score of 28-over par, 589. The team shot 303 in their second round with the top Vike being Griffin. Griffin shot 72 in his second round to sit third overall and just one shot back of second-placed Scott Secord, of UBC, and two shots back of leader Eric Flockhart, of Wilfrid Laurier.

An early evening weather-related delay set back the conclusions of the majority of the men’s groupings. Despite the challenge, UBC (282-296–578) was able to fend off the second-day advance of the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks (291-29–584) who finished their round earlier in the afternoon. The Vikes, Fraser Valley and the Toronto are tied for third with a two-round total of 589.

” We lost some ground to the leaders today but conditions in the afternoon were very difficult with winds gusting to 40-50kms all afternoon,” commented Clews for the Vikes men’s efforts. “We also had a one hour suspension of play due to thunder and lightning. Mike Griffin played a very tidy round and sits in third place overall after two rounds. Despite having a later tee time tomorrow, weather conditions will be less wind and sunny skies.”

Vike Alex Cartwright shot 74 on Day 2 to sit tied for 31st at 9-over par, 149, while team mate Matthew Broughton is currently tied for 38th after shooting a second-round score of 79 to sit 10pover par, 150. Andrew Funk is currently 48th with a score of 11-over par, 151, while Lawren Rowe shot a 78 to sit 14-over par, 154.

The third round begins tomorrow at 7:30 a.m. with additional information and tee times available here.
