Crusaders finish tied for 4th at LMU

THE CRUSADER MEN FOLLOWED UP AN OPENING ROUND 295 WITH A SOLID 294 TO FINISH IN A TIE FOR 4TH AT 589 WITH KING COLLEGE.

TUSCULUM COLLEGE WON THE EVENT AFTER SHOOTING A SECOND ROUND 6 UNDER PAR FOR A TWO DAY TOTAL  OF 572. THEY WERE FOLLOWED BY CAPE FEAR CC AT 578 IN SECOND AND HOST LINCOLN MEMORIAL WITH A 584 TOTAL FINISHING THIRD. THE INDIVIDUAL TITLE WAS CAPTURED BY NICK YORK SHOOTING 68-69 137 (-7).
 
THE CRUSADER MEN WERE LED BY SOPHOMORE DANNY DIPPEL AS HE FOLLOWED UP A FIRST ROUND 71 WITH A CLOSING ROUND 68, FOR A 2 DAY TOTAL OF 139 (-5), GOOD FOR SECOND PLACE. ANDREW BECK CONTINUED HIS SOLID PLAY  WITH A 73-75 148 (+4), JOSH O'NEAL 77-75 152 (+8), CHANCEN BLACKWOOD 74-79 153 (+9) AND RICHARD SMITH 82-76 158 (+14).
 
"THIS WAS A GREAT WAY TO FINISH OUT A SOLID FALL SEASON," PITTILLO SAID. DANNY HAD A GREAT EVENT ON A QUALITY GOLF COURSE AND THE REST OF THE TEAM PLAYED GOOD AS WELL. WE WILL MISS RICHARD SMITH IN THE SPRING AS HE GRADUATES THIS FALL. HE HAS DONE THE JOB IN THE CLASSROOM (3.4 GPA) AND HAS DEVELOPED INTO A SOLID PLAYER. WE WISH HIM THE BEST AS HE MOVES ON. 
 
THE CRUSADER MEN WILL OPEN THEIR SPRING SEASON AT THE OUTBACK INVITATIONAL HOSTED BY CATAWBA COLLEGE. IT WILL BE HELD AT THE HOMBRE GOLF CLUB IN PANAMA CITY BEACH, FLORIDA. THE HOMBRE GOLF CLUB IS THE HOST SITE OF PGA TOUR QUALIFYING STAGE TWO.
