Heather Schmitt, the daughter of Tony and Jan Schmitt of Paynesville, has completed the fall season on the golf team at the College of St. Benedict. Schmitt is a senior accounting major.

"Heather struggled to find her groove this season, but scrapped out some very good scores for us," said her coach, Theresa Solarz. Schmitt, a previous national qualifier, finished the season ranked eleventh in district 4 and earned All-MIAC honors.

"We had a tremendously successful fall," explained Solarz. "We had 43 wins and 18 losses, ranked seventh in Division III and fourth in District 4. The team placed second in the MIAC for the third year in a row and had four All-MIAC players."

The College of St. Benedict is located in St. Joseph, Minn. It has 1900 students. The Blazers compete in 11 intercollegiate sports.
