Foresters Get Back-to-Back Wins

FOR RELEASE
2005-09-20

 Despite not playing their best golf, the Foresters came up with several saves on critical holes to earn an uncommon back-to-back win at the Grace College Invitational. "I am happy that we won our second tournament in a row," said Coach Schownir. "Stonehenge, which was the site of this summer's Indiana Open, is a tough course, and all of our freshmen were playing it for the first time." Huntington won with a 321 team score with St. Francis second at 323. Taylor was third with a 327 and Grace finished fourth at 339.
Andrew Porterfield took top honors in the field again with a 77. Justin Imel and Daniel Schroeder both shot an 81 and Ryan Bonner finished with an 82 to complete the scoring for HU. With just a two-stroke margin of victory, every save became monumental. Imel got up and down six out of eight times to save par on the front nine. Bonner double-bogeyed each of his first four holes, but then played the rest of the way only three over, and Schroeder hit his tee shot on #9 out of bounds, then chipped in for a three on his second ball to save par.

"We didn't play our best today, but we still managed to get the job done. These guys don't give up even when they don't have their 'A' game." The win moves the Foresters to 9-9 on the season.
