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.”

Notes
· 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.

Play4Kay

The Vincennes University Athletic Department hosts Play4Kay and raises donations for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund annually. VU Women’s Basketball Coach and Athletic Director Harry Meeks has a special connection to the late Yow, who was the longtime coach at North Carolina State. He had the pleasure of meeting her while he was an assistant coach at Western Carolina University. This left a lasting impression on him and made this cause important to him and the Trailblazers.
