DMACC golfers have recently resumed play after waiting for the winter weather to halt. Athletes battled tough conditions so far in the early spring season. Both men’s and women’s teams competed in two meets so far in the young season. The women’s team recently canceled a meet due to inclement weather.

They were led by Ashley Michel who placed 4th in the individual rankings.
