Reivers finish 2nd in weather shortened Bent Tree Intercollegiate

Council Bluffs, Iowa


The men's golf team finished 2nd behind Indian Hills at the Bent Tree Intercollegiate. The teams played 36 holes on day 1 and the Reivers shot rounds of 297 and 307 and ended the day in 2nd place. Tom Westenberger led the men with rounds of 71 and 78 to finish 6th overall individually. Bent Tree Golf Club played very difficult with windy and cold temperatures and scores were high throughout the tournament. 

Round one teed off at 9:00am and the men got off to a good start. Westenberger fired an opening round 71 to sit in 2nd place individually after the first round. AJ Nolin carded a 73 and Joel Durford a 74. The team shot 297 which was the 2nd best score of the opening round and only the second sub 300 round. 

Round two was played in the afternoon with the final golfers finishing just before dark. The temperatures dropped and the wind picked up and scores were more difficult to come by. The men battled the conditions to shoot 307, the 2nd lowest round of the afternoon. Parker McEachern led the Reivers with 74 and Westenberger carded a 78. 

The final round of the event was to take place the following morning, but the conditions made the golf course unplayable. The event was shortened to 36 holes and Indian Hills was crowned the team champion. Fernando Arzate from Bellevue won the individual title with rounds of 74 and 71. 

The Reivers tee it up for the final time of the fall at the NJCAA National Preview in Lubbock, Texas on October 16th and 17th.
