NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (April 20, 2009)--The Bellarmine men's golf team shot a closing round 308--the best of the day in less than ideal conditions at Purgatory Golf Club--to finish fourth in the third and final Great Lakes Regional Qualifying tournament.
The finish solidifies the Knights' No. 4 seeding at the upcoming NCAA "Super Regional" on May 4, 5 and 6 at The Meadows Golf Club in Allendale, Mich., on the campus of Grand Valley State University.
Junior Brooks Herrick led the Knights with a 148 total, shooting consecutive rounds of 74 to finish 10th in the 60-player field.
Senior Kyle Leach also had a top 20 performance with rounds of 75 and 78 for a 153 total.
Ferris State won the team title with a 598. They were followed by the University of Indianapolis at 604 and Grand Valley State at 605. The Oilers of the University of Findlay tied Bellarmine for fourth at 608.
