NKU golfers aim for national title




The Cincinnati Enquirer

        The Northern Kentucky University men's team, which rallied from a nine-stroke deficit last week to win the NCAA Division II North Regional championship, will participate in the national finals Monday through Thursday at the Meadows Golf Course in Allendale, Mich.

        NKU won the regional with a final score of 914 at the par-71 New England Country Club in Bellingham, Mass. Freshman Brandon Brown was medalist with a three-day total of 219 as NKU edged Bryant (R.I.) by one stroke for the team title.

        This will be NKU's first trip to the national finals since 1996. In 1995 and '96, NKU also advanced to the national finals and finished a program-best tie for 11th in 1995. Steve Landrum, Great Lakes Valley Conference Player of the Year, and senior Josh Jarvi are other key members of the squad. Florida Southern is the three-time defending Division II champion.

        • Freshman Breanne Hall shot a 13-over-par 85 in the final round of the Division II Women's Championships and finished the four-day tournament 31st in individual competition at Rock Hill, S.C. Hall, the first NKU women invited to play in the NCAA Tournament, completed the 72 holes in 55-over-par 343.
