The Humber Hawks men’s and women’s golf teams are tops in the country after recently winning their respective Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) championships.

The women’s golf team successfully defended its national title and earned the program’s sixth since 2001 at the four-day tournament, while the men’s team won its 11th national title and first since 2012.

Both championships took place at the Deer Creek golf course in Ajax.

Hayley McCallum captured her first individual CCAA national title at the tournament. Matthew Bremer won the men’s individual title, taking it by five strokes.  

McCallum became just the second golfer in Hawks women’s program history to win individual gold, joining Shauna Wilde who accomplished the feat in 2007. Bremer became the men’s program’s seventh individual champion and the first since Adrian Cord won in 2011.

On the women’s side, Madison Ouellette took home the individual silver medal. Elaine Surjoprajogo just missed out on making the podium after finishing two strokes back from third. All three players were named CCAA All-Canadians.

For the men, rookie Daniel Talmage won the individual bronze medal. Talmage along with Bremer and teammate Trey Ross were named CCAA All-Canadians. Also part of the men’s team was Ryan Holwell and Charlie Cooper.

It was head coach Nick Trichilo’s first men’s title since he took over the program in 2012 and his third with the women’s team since 2013.
