Porterfield 20th in NAIA Regional

FOR RELEASE
2005-04-29
Forester junior Andrew Porterfield placed 20th in the individual portion of the NAIA Region VIII Golf Tournament held at Bedford Valley Golf Club in Battle Creek, Michigan. Porterfield, who shot rounds of 76-78-79, was the lone Huntington College representative by virtue of his MCC All-Conference honors received during last fall's conference season.

"Andrew played solid golf in spurts but was off at times, too, and Bedford Valley is a strong test that demands accuracy off the tee and superb putting on large and sloping greens", said Coach Schownir. "He was only six shots away from earning All-Region honors for a second year in a row. He still represented the school well and I'm looking forward to seeing good things from him in his senior year."

Marian's Zach Wolma was medalist with a one over-par total of 217 to earn a trip to the NAIA Nationals in Olathe, KS. In the team category, Spring Arbor University erased a nine-stroke deficit to Indiana Wesleyan University after 36 holes to capture a trip to the national tournament.
