2012 Calvin Women's Golf Schedule

By Jordan Brink

Calvin is seeking to build upon a strong 2011-12 campaign that saw the Knights finish fourth in the final MIAA regular season standings and qualify for the four-team MIAA spring tournament for the first time in school history. While Calvin is bringing in new talent to the program, three experienced letter-winners return.  Seniors Elise Doezema (Grand Rapids/Grand Rapids Christian HS) and Rachel Whitaker (Grand Rapids/Forest Hills Northern HS) combine with Junior Carlia Canto (Marysville/Port Huron Northern HS) to put together a strong nucleus of experience and success. Doezema and Canto were both members of the All-MIAA second team last fall.
