Men's Golf Team Takes Seventh at MEC Fall Classic

WEIRTON -- West Virginia Wesleyan's men's golf team played in their final tune up before the Mountain East Championships Sunday and Monday.

The Bobcats placed seventh in the 12-team field at the Mountain East Fall Classic at the Williams Country Club in Weirton.

Wesleyan's team tally was 676. 

 "We played a lot more consistency this weekend," head coach James Huber said. "This was our best performance in a two-day tournament this Fall."

Two Bobcats finished tied in 26th place in the individual standings; Nick West (77-78) (pictured) and James Snavely (76-79) both fired a two round total of 155.

They were followed closely behind by teammates Nicholas Casingal (77-81) and John Higgins (81-77) at 158. Ryan Holcomb rounded out the Wesleyan lineup with a 166 (83-83).

West Liberty's Michael Rogers won the individual title with a 139 (66-73).

West Liberty won the team title at the event with a team score of 575.

"We entered this event as the number nine team in the league, so we were able to jump over a few teams," Huber said. "We did leave a few putts out there, so we could have had a few less strokes if we had sank those. The guys are starting to come along...they are doing a good job of maintaining their composure and staying consistent."

These five golfers will return to action next week in the Mountain East Championships at the Glade Springs Country Club (October 10-12).
