Wed 5-21-2014



Two men from the Iowa Lakes Men's Golf Team are competing in the 2014 NJCAA Men's Division 2 National Tournament.  For the Lakers Austin Sweeney shot a first day total of 76 and is currently in a tie for 27th place.  Blake Orton shot a final round score of 78 and is currently in a tie for 50th place.  There are 132 players in this years National Tournament.  Low round of the day was shot by Sebastian Otoya from Seminole State in Oklahoma who fired a 5 under 67 on day one. 

In the team race Walters state is leading with a first round total 297.  They have a one stroke lead over Mesa Community College from Arizona, and Owens Community College from Ohio.

"Austin and Blake handled the first day very well i thought.  There are some things they want to do better, Austin didn't hit the particularly well but really chipped and putted well and that kept him in the round.  Blake felt like he didn't putt the ball particularly well today.  I feel that todays scores are a great start for them.  Tomorrow is a new day and they are ready to go." said Coach Andy Soper

Round 2 tee times for Iowa Lakes will be 12 pm Austin Sweeney, and 12:09 pm for Blake Orton.
