Dirksen wins at Camosun Invitational

Mission golfer earns first victory of 2017 season

Mission’s Hannah Dirksen took home top spot at the Camosun Invitational last weekend.

Mission’s Hannah Dirksen finally put it all together at the Camosun Invitational last weekend in Victoria.

The two-time CCAA All-Canadian fired rounds of 78 and 75 for a two-stroke margin ahead of her UFV Cascades golf teammates Maddie Kapchinsky (75-80=155) and Emery Bardock (75-81=156).

The Cascades, the No. 4-ranked women’s team in the nation, has finished one-two-three individually each of the past two weekends, and each of their three competitors has earned a tourney win. Bardock won the UBCO Invitational, Kapchinsky won the VIU Invitational, and it was Dirksen’s turn at Victoria’s Highland Pacific Golf Course.

In the overall standings, the Cascades women (934 cumulative strokes) own a massive 90-stroke cushion on UBCO (1,024) heading into the fourth and final event of the PACWEST season – the UFV Invitational, which runs this Saturday and Sunday at Abbotsford’s Ledgeview Golf Club.

The women’s individual race is more compelling, as Bardock (471), Kapchinsky (478) and Dirksen (479) are battling for the conference’s two CCAA All-Canadian spots.
