Second-place win tees off golf season

The Horned Frog men’s golf team finished second in the Cleveland State Invitational, and even though the team did not play its best, players feel fortunate to have seen the course that the NCAA Regionals will be played on in May, head coach Bill Montigel said.”We will use the knowledge we gained to get ready for the regionals,” Montigel said.

Sophomore Franklin Corpening said he thought the team played pretty well.

“Being a sophomore,” Corpening said, ” I want to try to help them get better and lead them to the NCAA Championships.”

Corpening tied for sixth place in the tournament.

Freshman Tom Miles said he was pleased with his individual score, especially since this was his first collegiate-level tournament.

“I didn’t expect much,” Miles said, “but I did a lot better than I thought. It wasn’t a good day, but it wasn’t a bad day either; it was average.”

Both Miles and Corpening said the team’s goal is to make it to the NCAA Championships.

The next match for the men’s golf team is the Inverness Invitational on Monday in Toledo, Ohio.
