FOR RELEASE
2004-09-13
After a disappointing performance on the weekend, the Foresters bounced back on Monday with a solid team effort to finish fourth out of eight teams at the Jon. P. Spiess Memorial Tournament. Spring Arbor won the event with a team score of 299. Olivet College was second at 300, followed by the University of Findlay (301), HC (302), Tri-State-white team (304), Tri-State -blue team (306), Lakeland College (310), and Siena Heights (314). HC's Jay Tropf shot a one under par 71 for a second place finish and Andrew Porterfield was even at 72 and finished third. Both were selected to the All-Tournament team. Two other Foresters to score were Justin Knierim with a 79 and Wes Knuth with an 80. "We needed a performance like this to get our confidence back," said Coach Schownir. "I am really happy for Jay Tropf. He played like he had been during the summer and Andrew Porterfield put in another solid round. We need some better support from the middle and bottom part of the lineup if we want to compete as conference season starts next week." Their finish moves them to 8-24 on the season.
