Vincennes University golfers place fourth at MWAC Championships

GODFREY, Ill. – The Vincennes University men’s golf team concluded its fall season by placing fourth out of five teams in the Mid-West Athletic Conference Tournament at Lockhaven Golf Club on Oct. 12.

VU Performers
7. Sophomore Matt Jordan (Franklin, Ind.) 79-79 — 158 (+14)
10. Freshman Bryce Kirchner (North Vernon, Ind.) 81-80 — 161 (+17)
16. Freshman Noah Crays (Plainfield, Ind.) 83-83 — 166 (+22)
21. Freshman Brock Craney (Washington, Ind.) 81-92 — 173 (+29)
25. Sophomore Gage Miller (Olney, Ill.) 97-87 — 184 (+40)

VU Coach Dennis Chattin says. . .
"I was disappointed that we didn’t play better. After the first round, we were one shot out of second, and I didn’t think we’d played particularly well. I thought we’d do better the second day, but I guess that’s why we play.”

· Parkland College won the title by shooting a 28-over-par 604. Danville Area (642), Illinois Central (649), VU (653) and Lewis and Clark (666) completed the field.
