Cyclones golfers coping with challenging slate
When it comes to challenging his golfers, Moraine Valley College coach Bob Freudenthal spares no obstacle.
At the University of St. Francis Tournament, for example, the Cyclones annually square off against some of their toughest competition, most of it supplied by four-year schools. The situation was no different on Friday at Wedgewood Golf Course, but Moraine managed to beat out a few other teams and wind up 14th in a field of 18.
John Nagle (season-low 77) paced the Cyclones, while Matt Contey (80), Jeff Cizek (83) and Scott Borden (83) also contributed to the 323 team total.
“I’m happy with the way the season is progressing,” Freudenthal said. “When all the guys hit their best game, we could put up some really low scores. We’ll see if they save the best for last.”
Moraine tapped into some of that “best” last Thursday when it held off Waubonsee College by four strokes in an Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference event at Glenwoodie Golf Course.
Three Cyclones broke 80, with David Karwoski’s round of 75 leading the way. Contey and Joe Knight both fired 79s and John Orowick posted an 81 for 18 holes.
