COLUMBIA — The Columbia College men's and women's golf teams completed the fall season Tuesday, hosting the first Columbia College Fall Invitational at Columbia Country Club.

The women's team placed second with a cumulative score of 699 strokes. Freshman Avery Rochester, sophomore Laken Fresec and senior Hannah Gill placed in the top 10. Rochester was named to the all-tournament team, shooting 21-over par in two rounds.

The men's team took third place with a cumulative score of 632. Junior Brandon Bowman placed fifth at 10-over par.

William Woods University won both sides of the tournament with a score of 657 for the women and 618 for the men.

“I am very proud of the hard work and effort that both teams have put forth this fall,” Columbia coach John Utley said. “The ladies have set a new standard for themselves by breaking the previous team score record and also setting a new individual record. ... The men are showing promise and are very close to getting over the hump. We will keep working on the little things and look forward to getting back in action next spring.”
