FOR RELEASE
2004-09-10
Ten teams competed in the Indiana Wesleyan University Invitational and the Foresters were tied for 7th after Friday's round with a team score of 317. Unfortunately, HC shot eight strokes worse on Saturday and finished in last place with a score of 642. Marian College won the event with a 587 followed by IWU (593), Franklin College (601), Lindenwood University (610), Missouri Baptist College (610), Spring Arbor University (618), Cornerstone University, (622), Taylor University (625), and Aquinas College (635). Andrew Porterfield posted the Foresters' two best scores on the weekend with a 76 on Friday and a 78 on Saturday for a 154 total. Wes Knuth finished with a 160 (79-81), Justin Knierim had a 162 (79-83), and Jay Tropf shot a 166 (83-83). Indiana Wesleyan's Andy Varner was the Individual Medallist with a 135 (68-67). "We're just not playing well right now," said Coach Schownir. "I really thought we would improve on Saturday like everyone else did. I feel we're just putting too much pressure on ourselves to play perfect shots. The conference season will start at IWU on the 21st and we have a lot of improvement to make if we want to place in the top five in conference and qualify for regional next spring." The Foresters are now 4-21 on the season.
