FOR RELEASE
2006-04-08
Despite having to battle adverse weather conditions and a challenging Meshingomeshia course, the Foresters tied for fifth with Cedarville with a two-day total of 621. It was HU's best performance ever at the Indiana Wesleyan Invitational.
Andrew Porterfield, who played his last four holes three under par, paced the Foresters with a one over par 145, the third best score in the tournament. His effort also earned him a spot on the All-Tournament team. Justin Imel and Dan Knuth each shot a 159. Spencer Batt had a 162, and Ryan Bonner added a 166 for HU. "I am so happy for Andrew to earn a spot on the All-Tournament Team in his last performance in his hometown," said Coach Schownir. "We picked each other up both days and hung in there after some bad starts in the second round. We still have some work to do but we're getting closer."

Marian took the tournament title with a 593. Indiana Wesleyan was second with a 602 followed by Bethel (613) Lindenwood (615) HU and Cedarville (621), Marian B team (639) and Lindenwood B team (647).
