APOLLO, PA – The York College women's golf squad began their 2018 fall campaign with an impressive start as York sits second of 10 teams at the Carnegie Mellon Fall Shootout on Saturday in Apollo, Pa. The tournament is being held at the Links at Spring Church, a par 74 layout in Apollo.

The Spartans carded a school record 321 for the round, besting the previous school record by a whooping 37 strokes. York also got a new school record from Anna Moore as the freshman shot a three-over-par 77 as she is tied for the tournament lead.
