Bozeman High Grad Wins Frontier Conference Golf Title

Posted: Updated:
He's been one of Carroll's best golfers the entire year, and Bozeman High graduate Connor Hausauer found himself in the running for a Frontier Conference Title. After two rounds of golf on Monday, Hausauer had a 7 stroke lead, but midway through the final round, he found himself up by a single stroke.

"There definitely was some quality play from the opponents. I got a few unlucky breaks early, and it got a little tighter than I wanted it
to midway through the round, but I just kept hitting shots, keep doing what I've done all week, and I came out on top," says the junior Hausauer.

While Hausauer kept his lead, winning the individual title, his team slipped. After being up by five as a team, they ended up second, behind Westminster of Utah, by a mere four strokes.

"It really came down to the final hole.  We just as a group ran into a situation where we took a lot of bogies on the final two holes, and
ended up finishing in sixth place, just a few shots.  Which is what we did last year, second place a few shots back.  Unfortunately for us we found ourselves just short of a national title appearance, but very proud of the guys.  We were the four seed coming in, some of the best rounds of the year, we played really well in the weather, so extremely proud of them.  The last four years we've gone second, first, second, second, so we'll just look to keep building for the future," says Carroll head coach Bennett MacIntyre

Even though they didn't come out on top, their conference champion is happy with how the rest of the team did.

"It is sweet to get the individual one.  It's something that I always thought I could do, and to do it is a big accomplishment for me.  But
the dream, the really big dream all year was to get the entire team to nationals, and we came in with a five shot lead, and we played well.
I'm really proud of the guys, they stepped up but we just couldn't get it done," says Hausauer.

On the women's side of things, Lewis-Clark State took first, followed by Rocky, and Carroll in the top three, with Montana Tech coming in
fifth. Rocky also finished fourth at the men's championships, a disappointing finish for the bears, after coming in as the top ranked team, and losing their top player to injury, but they remained positive.

"It's tough when you're the number one .  You're the one who has something to lose.  Other teams can just go for it.  We definitely had
a monkey on our back, but you learn from these experiences, and hopefully, since we don't lose anybody, which is nice, we'll come back
and get the conference title and go to nationals," says Rocky Sophomore Tayler Noble
