FOR RELEASE
2004-10-04
The Foresters headed into their final conference match of the season hoping to gain enough ground to move into fifth place in the conference, which would earn them a spot in the NAIA Region VIII Tournament in the spring. HC finished the day in sixth place with a 324, five strokes back of Taylor University(319), the team they needed to try to catch. HC's Dan Knuth led the team with a 78 on the day. Andrew Porterfield, who earned All-Conference honors with his 76-stroke average in conference play, finished with an 80. Justin Knierim had an 81 and Josh Fortney shot an 84. "We faced some tough conditions today," said Coach Schownir. "It was very cold and windy, and we had to switch courses at the last minute. We ended up on a very long, tough course that none of us had seen. Dan played very well shooting one of the better individual scores of the day. Overall, we played well today, we just couldn't get the putts to drop when we needed them." Marian College won the final MCC event with a 303 and continued their dominance in the conference, winning their seventh consecutive title with an overall score of 1204, which was 20 strokes better than the second place finisher, Bethel College (1224). Indiana Wesleyan University finished third in the overall standings with a 1230 followed by Spring Arbor University (1245) in fourth, Taylor University (1249) in fifth, HC (1270) in sixth, University of St. Francis (1307) in seventh, Grace College (1375) in eighth, and Goshen College (1496) in ninth. The Foresters finish their fall schedule with a record of 25-43.
