Melanie Kleiner

Golf Stats Change
. . . Forever

By Rob Potter
CALLICOON — May 9, 2006 – The new Section IX girls’ golf record for the lowest score in a nine-hole round did not last very long.
Just six days after Sullivan West’s Melanie Kleiner set the new record of 36, the mark was broken – by Kleiner herself.
On Wednesday, May 3, Kleiner, a freshman on the Lady Bulldogs’ golf team, scored an even-par 35 on the front nine at the Villa Roma County Club in Callicoon during a non-league match against John S. Burke Catholic High School.
Nearly a week earlier, on Thursday, April 27, Kleiner fired a 1-over-par 36 on the Villa Roma course in a non-league match versus New Paltz. Kleiner’s 36 replaced the old record of 38, which was held by Ashley Zambito of Newburgh.
As for the match with Burke, Kleiner’s record-setting 35 led the Lady Bulldogs to victory. Teammates Kate Fanning and Lauren Ellison added a 50 and 52, respectively, as SW posted a 137-157 win over the Lady Eagles.
With the victory, SW improved its record to 6-0 on the season.
