Men's Golf Takes 11th at Wolf Run Intercollegiate
Sept. 22, 2013
The Illinois State men's golf team moved up in the ranks to finish in 11th place at the competitive Wolf Run Intercollegiate Sunday with a team score of 931 (324-307-300).
After a challenging first day, head coach Ray Kralis was proud that the team was able to recover and push through the final round on such a difficult course.
"We played our best team round of the event and will build off of that going forward." Kralis said. "We did a much better job of staying out of our own way, which is easier said than done on a course that demands so much precision. I like the way we responded after a tough first round and was pleased to finish on a positive note with another big event next weekend."
Kyle Meihofer led the Redbirds with a total score of 231 (79-79-73) to tie for 46th place. Within two strokes of their teammate, Wils Hawn tied for 49th place with a score of 232 (83-74-75), while Tyler Gentilella carded a three-round score of 233 (82-78-73). Jordan Fahel finished with a final score of 238 (80-77-81), while Parker Freiburg had a total of 240 (83-78-79).
Illinois took first place with a team score of 844 (282-281-281), while Auburn claimed second with a score of 877 (297-294-286). Illinois golfer Thomas Detry won first place with a score of 209 (69-69-71), while teammate Brian Campbell finished three strokes behind for a total of 212 (72-71-69).
The Redbirds will return to competition, beginning Sept. 29, at the Badger Invitational in Madison, Wis.
