| May 4, 2021 1:10 AM

WORLEY — Freshman James Swan earned medalist honors with a 2-under 142 and the North Idaho College men’s golf team wrapped up its 2020-21 season by winning the NIC Spring Invitational on Monday at Circling Raven Golf Club.

Swan shot a 1-over 73 on Monday and won by eight strokes. Jared Smith (5th, 155), Austin Mitchell (7th, 161) and Garrett Bland (T-9, 163) all finished inside the top 10 for the Cardinals.

“The course played long at just over 7100 yards, with some tough pins the first round and wind over the two days,” NIC coach Russell Grove said.

NIC’s men won the team title by five shots over Community Colleges of Spokane.

NIC’s women, in their season finale, finished second by 20 shots behind CC Spokane.

Emily Elliott led the Cardinals, finishing second at 164.

“Emily had a solid stretch of 16 holes today in which she played in 3 over par,” Grove said.

Megan Light (T-8, 174) and Caitlin O’Connor (10th, 176) also finished in the top 10.
