Sophomore sets Calvin record

This past fall, Carlia Canto set a Calvin record for lowest strokes per round for the women’s golf team at 82.7. And, being just a sophomore, she has two more years to lower that mark.

A graduate of Port Huron (Mich.) High School, Carlia chose Calvin after visiting the campus several times. “In all the three or four visits at Calvin, my family and I encountered great hospitality from the students and staff. It’s a beautiful campus; Calvin has high acceptance rates to med school and the professors take time to help their students,” she said.

A biochemistry major, Carlia wants to pursue a medical career, possibly sports medicine. As with any sport, performing at a high level on the course and in the classroom is a challenge. “I have a better understanding of what to do and expect now, but, of course at Calvin, it’s a challenging task to do the very best in both,” she said. “To me, academics is as important as golf, and I try to find balance and do the best I can in both.”

Not only did Carlia have a great season personally, but she led the women’s golf team to a fourth-place finish in the MIAA regular season and the final spot in the spring MIAA tournament.
