ANGOLA, Ind.  – Senior Lance Hoch wrapped up his Forester golf career by earning his third consecutive All-Conference honor at the Crossroads League Championships at Glendarin Hills Golf Club in Angola, Indiana. The Marion native fired a four-over-par 220 to finish 6th overall. He posted a 77 to open up play, shot a two-under 70 in round two and then wrapped up the tourney by shooting a 73.

As a team, HU shot a 940 (320, 302, 318) to finish tied for eighth with Bethel.

After a slow start, Cale Carr finished with a 230 (81, 74, 75) to finish 25th. Zach Borntreger carded a 244 (82, 77, 85) for 41st. Logan DeMaa posted a 246 (80 81, 85) while Alex Creekmur shot a 267 (95, 86, 86).

“We had a solid second round which showed the team how competitive we can be when we are able to execute our plan for the course and keep the ball in manageable places,” said Coach Sholund. “They have really progressed in learning to play at this level and we are excited to get started next fall.

“Lance Hoch completed his collegiate career in an inspirational way for our young players by earning All-Conference honors. He will be able to take a strong finish to a very good four years with him throughout his life, and he gave me the memory of walking his final hole with him. It was truly a blessing.”

Taylor, the sixth place finisher in last year’s league tourney, topped the pack with a 872 followed by Marian (875), Indiana Wesleyan (889), Mount Vernon (899), Spring Arbor (905), Saint Francis (909), Grace (913), HU (940) and Bethel (940).
