Oakland City, IN: On Monday, September 20th/21st, the Alice Lloyd Eagles golf team played in the NCCAA Mideast Regional at Country Oaks Golf Course, hosted by Oakland University. The Mighty Oaks was a great host and the tournament went off very well despite inclement weather.
Asbury University won the tournament to qualify for the NCCAA National Tournament as the Mideast Region Champion. Nate Neal of Oakland City University qualified for the national tournament as the low individual player, not on the winning team.
For the event, ALC golfers shot 340/332. This is a good score for a young team on what was a very challenging course. On tee to green, the squad was excellent, but the slow bumpy greens proved a tough challenge.
From an individual standpoint, Mason Compton led Eagle golfers shooting 79/81 for 160 and 10th place, while Korey Hanson fired 84/85 for 169 and 14th place. Additionally, Dylan Fitch shot 90/81 for 15th place, Wyatt Crisp shot 87/85 for 16th place, and Matthew Fitch shot 94/92 good for 17th place.
Next up is the UPike Fall Invitational at Stonecrest Golf Course in Prestonsburg.
