Golf finishes season

Stephen Exarhos

The Lawrence University men’s golf team competed in the Midwest Conference Championships two weeks ago in Rockford, Ill.
The six-man team combined to shoot a score of 1012 for the 54-hole tournament, while the team from Monmouth College took home first place with a team-score of 936.
Senior Tom Vyskocil led the way for the Vikings, finishing with a third-round 77 to earn his way into a tie for 10th place individually. His combined score of 240 for the weekend, as well as the performances he turned in over the course of the season, earned him all-conference honors for the first time in his Lawrence career.
Senior Adam Ferguson also placed well, taking home 14th place with a combined score of 243. The three-shot gap between the two Vikings shows how tight the competition was.
Junior Jon Mays took 36th place with a score of 259. Sophomore Jim Crowley, sophomore Zach Joseph and freshman Brad Scurfield took 43rd, 48th and 51st respectively to round out the scoring for Lawrence.
As the Vikings look towards next season, the team will be forced to ask the returnees to step up their game to replace high-flying seniors Vyskocil and Ferguson as well as senior Andrew Russell. Rising senior Jon Mays will look to lead the team to greater heights than it reached this year.
