College kids continue south of the border


For the second time in his college career, weather may have washed out Josh Nagy‘s chance at a college win.

This season, on April 19 and 20, the Robert Morris University (RMU) junior tied for third in the weather shortened Wright State Invitational in Springboro, Ohio. The Saskatoon product carded rounds of 72 and 73 for a 36-hole total of 3-over par, 145. Nagy tied for third, just three shots off the pace.

The Colonials tied for fourth as a team, 11 back of Wright State.

Jace Carlisle was able to celebrate a Post University team win at the Yellow Jacket Invitational in West Springfield, Massachusetts on April 18 and 19.

The Estevan product led the event at The Ledges Golf Club in par-3 scoring at 2-under par and finished tied for 27th at 14-over par, 158.

Post University teammates Ethan Philips and Riley Card finished first and second respectively leading the Eagles to the tournament victory.

Next on the schedule is the NCAA Atlantic/East Regional from May 7 – 9 at Ravenwood Golf Club in Victor, New York.

Caden Loeppky of Saskatoon was on the course last week alongside his Waldorf University teammates. Competing in a one-round event Loeppky shot 12-over par, 84 at the Mason City Country Club in Mason City, Iowa on April 19. He placed in a tie for 41st. Waldorf was sixth in the team standings.
