WEST ALLIS, Wis. -- Alverno College golfers Mackenzie Mathies and Hannah Kelsey both carded their career-best rounds to open the 2017-18 season in a dual versus Mount Mary University.

Mathies paced the Inferno with a 118, which was seven strokes lower than her previous best, while Kelsey fired a 119 to take eight off her former low round.

Mathies parred the eighth hole and had three bogies while Kelsey parred the sixth and also had three bogies.

Mary Kate Sulikowski and Chloe Fleming both competed in their first collegiate golf event and added a 142 and 147 to Alverno's score for a 526 total in the season opener.

The visiting Blue Angles, however, won the dual meet with a 503 led by Jacqlyn Artman's 96.

The two teams will meet again Friday, September 8 as Mount Mary hosts the Inferno and Lakeland University in a triangular meet at Currie Park Golf Course at 12 p.m.
