2006 season comes to a close at GPAC meet

24-25 APR 2006

The Concordia University, Nebraska men’s golf team wrapped up their season at the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) meet on Monday, April 24 and Tuesday April 25.

As a team the Bulldogs shot a two-day total of 650 (328-322) to finish in 10th place at the GPAC tournament. The five Bulldogs who golfed (Dustin Petrik, Mike Kulzer, Ryan Hrdlicka, Steffan Shelemey and Scott Beck) did mange to score slightly better than their season average as a team, but it wasn’t nearly good enough a the conference tournament which is packed full of excellent teams. The meet, held at Landsmeer Golf Club in Orange City, Iowa, was won by Nebraska Wesleyan.

Concordia was led by Petrik who fired a 161. Kulzer wasn’t far behind with a 162, followed by Hrdlicka with a 165. Rounding out the scoring for the Bulldogs was Shelemey at 163. None of the Concordia golfers were in the top 20 at the GPAC meet.

Back on April 22, the Bulldogs competed at the Doane Spring Tournament held in Crete, Neb., at the College Heights Golf Club. Concordia fared much better in the team standings, tying for second place with Midland Lutheran, finishing with a 322. The Bulldogs also had a junior varsity squad competing at the meet. The JV squad carded a 334 for sixth place.

Individually the Bulldogs were led by a member of the JV squad, Mike Frates. Frates took second place overall with a three over 73. Kulzer and Petrik also finished in the top 10, taking seventh (78) and 10th (80) respectively.

Looking forward to next season their will be some new faces in Concordia golf, as three of the top five players from this season are seniors and will not be returning. Coach Carl Everts is optimistic as the attention shifts from day-to-day golfing on to recruiting for next season.
