The 2020 Kalamazoo College women's golf season came to an abrupt and unexpected end on Friday, March 13 when the MIAA President's Council canceled the spring seasons due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kalamazoo had the opportunity to participate in the bulk of its season in the fall and finished that season in ninth place at the MIAA Fall Final at Bedford Valley. 

Darby Scott led the way for the Hornets for the second consecutive season as she lowered her overall scoring average of 84.5 from a year ago by breaking her own school record and averaging 80.0. 

During the first match of the season, Scott matched Krisytn Buhl's school record of 75 at Arbor Trace. The junior now owns 11 of the top 13 scores in Kalamazoo women's golf history. 

Following the season, Scott became just the third player in program history to be named a member of the All-MIAA First Team after earning Second Team recognition last season. 

As a team, the Hornets put together the seventh-best scoring day in school history with a 367 at day two of the Indiana Wesleyan Invitational. Along with Scott's 82, Claire Middleton put together a season-best 87 on the day. Middleton finished the season with a 99.6 overall scoring average which was second-lowest on the team.

Katherine Stewart and Amanda Dow also played in all 10 events for Kalamazoo. 

Hornet women's golf also added a new assistant coach during the season as Tracy Daniel joined the program. Daniel comes to Kalamazoo after 30 years at Comstock Public School. During that time, she was a teacher, softball coach, and began the girl's golf program in 2002. She led that program to a Wolverine Conference Championship in 2013. 

"Tracy has had a positive impact on the players and our recruiting efforts," said coach Dean Marks. "We currently have three commitments for next year and are looking forward to getting back on the course."
