HELENA — Carroll College’s golf team signed a pair of Montanans in Connor Mora of Great Falls and Katie Fagg of Missoula, golf coach Ben MacIntyre announced Monday.
Fagg will come to Carroll after finishing out her high school career at Loyola Sacred Heart where she’s in the mix to be a title contender yet again this season. During her time in high school, she’s scored points for Montana at the Montana Alberta Cup and helped guide the Breakers to a Class B state championship in 2018, finishing in second place individually. She’s also won two club championships at Canyon River in Missoula.
“Katie is having another great season and will be a great addition to our women’s program,” MacIntyre said. “She is well-coached, put in the work to refine her swing and has that competitive edge that will make those around her better. I expect her to be a leader in our program and she no doubt has the ability to leave a high mark by the time her college career comes to a close as a Saint. Very excited to start working with Katie.”
Fagg brings a 5.4 handicap to the Saints and has shot a 69 as her best round. A strong short-game player, she is the daughter of Rick and Elizabeth Fagg and has four siblings.
Mora will join the Saints after prepping at Great Falls High. He is a two-time all-state selection in Class AA. He shot a second-round score of 69 to lead the Bison at the state tournament this past fall at Butte Country Club.
“There is so much to like about Connor, but he also gets it done in the classroom carrying a 3.9 GPA,” MacIntyre said. “He has the ability to put some under-par rounds together and is a consistent player. He is another incoming freshman who will most likely be playing varsity golf for the next four years. He has a very high ceiling.”
Mora carries a two handicap and has a personal best round of 64 thanks to his driving and ability to scramble. He is the son of Nancy and Thomas and has one sister, Quinn.
