On March 18th– 19th, the Alice Lloyd College Eagles Golf team traveled to Berea and joined seven other colleges in the first conference match of the season. The Berea Invitational was held at the Battlefield Golf Club.
The top two finishers in the KIAC meet were Brescia University, who shot a team score of 631, and Indiana University-East, with a total of 657.
As a team, ALC placed 6th out of the 8 squads. Their total team score was 699. From an individual standpoint, in the two rounds of play, Bryce Adkins led the team will rounds of 83 and 82 respectively. He was followed by Isaac Wilson who shot 84 each round. Next was Samuel Keathley, who shot 88 and 90. Other qualifiers were Taylor Fry, with scores of 100 and 88, and Ryan Charles, who shot 114 and 105.
Eagle coach Nicholas Adams commented, “Overall, I am pleased with our first match and I feel that the placement does not dictate the level at which these men played. We just formed our team this year, so we have five new golfers who came and competed against a field of teams that have been playing together for several years. I believe that my team has shown that they can compete, and that bright things are in store for them this season.”
