PERU, Ind. - Shortened to just a single round on Friday due to Saturday’s heavy rains, the Forester men’s golf team finished eighth at their own invitational at Rock Hollow Golf Club in Peru (Ind.) over the weekend.

Ryan Boester shot a 74 (+2) to finish tied for fourth out of 74 golfers to earn a spot on the All-Tournament team. Lance Hoch turned in a 77 to tie for 13th. Devin Dale and Derek Zurcher carded rounds of 83 while Zach Borntreger rounded out HU’s scoring with an 84. Zach Herber, playing as an individual, finished with a 95.

“Rock Hollow is a great course that can jump up and bite an errant shot, especially off the tee,” noted Coach Schownir. “I was happy to see Ryan earn a spot on the All-Tournament Team. He was on his way to a great round Tuesday in Michigan and couldn’t finish it off so he was determined to get it done Friday.

“Lance is very close to putting together a great round too. Derek had a solid round going, too, until one hole took its toll.”

Taylor claimed the tournament title among the field of 11 teams with an 11-over-par 299 followed by Saint Francis (305), Indiana Wesleyan (309), Bethel (310), Mount Vernon (315), Trinity Christian (316), Holy Cross (316), HU (317), Grace (320), Indiana Tech (321) and Purdue North Central (334).
