Eagles place fourth at Virginia McCoy despite tough competition

The Eagles golf team returned to playing the weekend of Oct. 9, traveling to play in the Virginia McCoy Invite in Kansas City, Mo.  

On the first day of the invite, the course was disastrous where no team or even any single individual finished the day below par. Members of the team participating were Quinn Tinkler, Leo Burger, Grant Greazel, Gannon Hall, Nate Offerman and Frank Haege. 

On day one, Tinkler and Burger had some great rounds compared to the competition. Tinkler went two over and tied for sixth and Leo Burger went three strokes over and tied for eighth. 

For the rest of the Eagles, Greazel finished four over par and tied for 14th, Hall and Offerman went six over and tied for 27th and Haege went eight over and tied for 34th place overall.  

On day two, five of the six Eagles improved their score with Burger leading the way, improving by seven strokes going four under on the day and finishing second, Greazel improving by four strokes going even on the day and tying for 12th, Haege improving by 10 and going two under on the day tying for 19th and Hall improving by four going two over finishing in 24th. 

Offerman improved by three strokes going three over and Tinkler struggled picking up five more strokes than the day before, both tied for 27th, placing fourth overall at the meet. 

The Eagles wrapped up their season competing in the Battle of the Ozarks on Oct. 30 – 31. They will be competing again in the spring with their meets and dates to be determined.
