Miami Golf Wins MAC Championship and NCAA Tourney Bid

CHARDON, Ohio – The Miami University golf team won the 2015 Mid-American Conference Championship on Sunday. The RedHawks shot a final round of two-over par 290 to finish the event at eight-over par. Miami led the tournament wire-to-wire and won by eight strokes. Toledo finished in second at 16-over par. It is the first MAC Championship for the Red and White since the 1996 season.

“I was really proud of our guys, especially for a couple of reasons,” said head coach Zac Zedrick. “One is we came here this week believing that if we played our best golf, we were going to win so to go out and do that is awesome.

“The other great piece to this is we went wire-to-wire. Leading from that first day and to maintain that in a four round tournament is very difficult to do. It’s tough to go to bed with the lead two nights in a row and the guys did a tremendous job of handling that pressure.

Hawk of the Week

Malarie Schmidt and Chris Heaton

Our new co-Hawks of the Week are women's senior swimmer Malarie Schmidt and men's senior diver Chris Heaton.  Both athletes set MAC and Miami records over the weekend at the Miami Invitational.

In racing to a second place finish, Malarie set a new Miami and Mid American Conference record in the 100 backstroke with a time of 55:07.  She also helped Miami's 400 medley relay team shatter another conference and school record with a winning time of 3:41.98.  Between individual and relay events, Malarie had five victories and one second place finish to help Miami win the Invitational by a whopping 943 points. 

Chris set a new MAC and Miami record in the three meter diving event with a total score of 406.85, shattering the old conference record by almost 50 points.  In addition to his winning performance in the three meter competition, Chris also finished second in the one meter event.  Overall, the men placed third at the event.

For the season, the women's team is 7-1, including 4-0 in the MAC while the men's team is 2-5.  Both teams next compete at a dual meet in mid-January against the University of Cincinnati.

Congratulations to Malarie and Chris on their outstanding meets and on being named our Hawk of the Week.
