Men's Golf Clinches Third Place In Conference Championship
CAPE COD, Mass. - Northern Colorado men's golf rallied in the second day at the America Sky Conference championship to clinch third place on Tuesday after finishing in sixth after day one.
The tournament was shortened and delayed due to the arrival of Hurricane Kyle on the east coast. The 36 hole tournament finished with the Bears shooting 609, one stroke behind second place.
"I am very pleased," head coach Chuck Scheinost said, "It was a rough tournament to get started with the practice round becoming the first round because of weather."
Sophomore Steve Bidne finished in the top spot for the Bears finishing two under par on the second day rebounding from the 80 he shot on day one. Bidne finished in eight place with a scorfe of 150 in the 35 player field.
Finishing just behind Bidne was freshman Kory Harrell who tied for ninth place with a final score of 151. Harrell scored 78 on the first day and 73 on the second day.
Fellow Big Sky team Sacramento State finished in the top spot with the Hornets recording a team score of 589.
