POST FALLS SHORT OF NCAA GOLF NATIONALS
DANIELS, WV (May 6, 2009) - Post University, the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Champion, finished in a tie for eighth place at the NCAA Division II East/Atlantic Super Golf Regional, which concluded Wednesday afternoon in Daniels, WV. The Eagles fell short of advancing to the NCAA National Championship, as the top five teams moved on. Fellow CACC institutions Goldey-Beacom College (15th) and Wilmington University (20th) also competed at the regional.
Post rebounded from a poor opening round to shoot a 309 on day two and a 311 in the third and final round. However, the Eagles opened with a 326, which proved to be too much to recover from. The top Eagle finisher was Jamie Blake, who tied for 15th with a three-round total of 231 (78, 78, 75). Blake also carded the best score among CACC competitors. David McGregor was right behind him in a tie for 17th after firing a 232 (82, 75, 75).
AJ Lee, who participated as an individual for Dominican College, tied for 23rd after carding a 234 (77, 79, 78). Tyler Harman led Goldey-Beacom by shooting rounds of 79, 78 and 85 (242) to tie for 51st place. As a team, the Lightning shot 970 (320, 326, 324). Wilmington ended with a 1013 (331, 329, 353).
Emmanuel Charmat of Concord University won the individual championship after firing a 224 (77, 70, 77). Indiana University (PA) took home the team title with a combined 915 (317, 300, 298).
