Very proud of the effort boys! A lot of the team is made up of local talent. From El Paso we have brothers Michael and Branden Mounce. From Pekin we have Drake Bushong. From Limestone/ICC we have Zach Jewell and from AC Central/ICC, and Illini Golf employee, Ethan Brue who won the tournament. Next up is the Joh Dallio Memorial tournament hosted by DePaul in Lemont on the 19th and 20th. GO BRAVES!

The BU women's spring golf season got underway today as they played in the Amelia Island Collegiate in Fernandina Beach, Florida. They played 54 holes and shot team scores of 314 and 306 to finish 16th out of 18 teams but are just 10 shots out of the top ten. Freshman Taylor Ledwein shot scores of 74/76 to finish tied for 23rd and Sophomore Frankie Saban shot 77/77 to finish tied for 51st. They finish the tournament with 18 more holes of Tuesday and then have a quick turnaround as they go to Rio Verde, Arizona for the 3 day Rio Verde Invitational tournament that starts on Friday.
The men's golf team will have their first spring tournament on the 27th and 28th in Spring, Texas at the Colin Montgomery Houston Baptist Invitational. The men are coming off one of BU's best fall seasons ever as they won 2 out of 5 tournaments and finished 2nd and 3rd in 2 others. From what I've been told competition on the team should be pretty fierce as they have at least 8 guys competing for 5 spots for each tournament. Should be fun.

The 2016-17 Men's golf teams regular season came to end today as they played at the Ryman Hospitality Intercollegiate in Nashville, Tennessee. They have had a great season with winning 4 tournaments, setting team 18 & 54 hole scoring school records and individual 18 & 54 hole round scoring school records. Unfortunately this last tournament was their poorest effort of the year as they finished last in a 14 team field shooting rounds of 314, 316 and 319 for a 54 hole team score of 919. I know they had been feeling pretty good about themselves with the season they've had so maybe this "cold slap in the face" will get their attention as they head to the Missouri Valley Championship Tournament at Cog Hill in Lemont on the 24th and 25th. Hopefully this will prove to be just a speed bump in the road to trying to win their first Valley championship in school history. Bradley's best ever finish was 2nd in 1984 and 1986.
