Sarah-Ève Rhéaume of CEGEP Champlain–St. Lawrence, received the gold medal at last week’s CCAA national golf championship.

Congratulations to St. Lawrence College student Sarah-Ève Rhéaume who won the women’s Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) national golf title on October 20 in Oshawa, Ontario.

After four rounds of play, Rhéaume was tied +23 with University of the Fraser Valley’s Madison Kapchinsky. The golfers played an extra hole to determine the national champion.

Rhéaume played a 30-yard downhill putt almost perfectly, leaving herself a short putt for the win. Kapchinsky bogeyed the hole as her drive went into the bunker. It was the first time that the CCAA women’s title was decided in overtime.

Audrey Côté, also from St. Lawrence, finished 12th.

On the men’s side, St. Lawrence’s Charles-Éric Bélanger was +9 for the four rounds and won the bronze medal, one shot behind James Casorso of UBC-Okanagan. The national champion is Daniel Campbell, of University of the Fraser Valley, who was even after the tournament.

The Lions women’s team also came home with a medal in their baggage.

Composed of Rhéaume, Audrey Côté, and Sarah Maud Longchamp, the Lions had a combined +80 for the tournament, tied with Georgian College. The tiebreaker gave the Lions the silver medal.

The men’s team also did well, as they finished three shots behind the bronze medalist (Humber College) and finished fourth. Fraser Valley took the national title by 16 shots, over second-place UBC-Okanagan.
