The Reivers kicked off their season at the Klocke Family Classic hosted by Mt. Mercy University at the Hunter's Ridge Golf Course in Marion, IA. The 15 team field played a wet and soft golf course due to all the rain in the region lately. Sophomore Clay Kucera got off to a blistering start in round 1 by shooting a new school record, 64. His round saw 8 birdies and no bogies. Freshman Adam Van Raden carded a 2 under par 70 and the team opened with an even par 288. After round 1 the Reivers held a small 2 shot lead over Mt. Mercy and was 4 clear of the #1 team in the NJCAA, Indian Hills.
In round 2 Van Raden again carded a 2 under par 70 and sophomore Tom Westenberger fired a 68 to lead the team to a 291 team score and a 579 total for the event. The round was good enough to hold off the field and earn a 2 shot victory over Indian Hills.
Adam Van Raden led the Reivers with a 4 under par total finishing in a tie for 2nd. Tom Westenberger finished with a 3 under par total and a T4 finish and Clay Kucera also earned All-Tournament honors with a 2 under par total to finish 6th.
The Reivers tee it up again at the Warrior Classic hosted by Indian Hills at the Preserve Golf Club in Moravia, IA on September 17th and 18th.
