WATERVILLE, Maine — The University of Maine at Presque Isle men’s golf team competed in the 36-hole North Atlantic Conference Championship on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 12 and 13, at Waterville Country Club.

For the Owls, Collin Racine (sophomore, Rutland, Vermont) had a team-leading score of 47 on the front nine and finished the day with a score of 94. Payton Jones (freshman, Green Cove Springs, Florida) also carded a 94 and Christian Mumley (junior, Guilford) added a 96 for UMPI.
Matt Pelletier of the University of Maine at Farmington, Jason Klevan of NVU-Johnson and Nolan Codd of SUNY-Canton all had the day’s low round of even par (70).
On Sunday, SUNY Delhi emerged as the NAC Championship winners, while Eric Dugas of Husson was the medalist with a 145 on both days.
UMPI Sports Information Director Mark Knight said day two for UMPI was led by Mumley, who shot a 92 on the par-70 course, finishing with 188 on the two days. Jones also finished with 188, earning a 94 on both days. Both golfers tied for a 40th-place finish.
