Loras 9th of 12, Leibfried 8th

The Loras College men's golf team hosted their annual Spring Invitational on Sunday and Monday and finished ninth among the 12 teams who entered the event. The teams battled windy and chilly conditions during Monday's final round at Thunder Hills (Peosta, Iowa) after a calmer day on Sunday when 41 of the 71 entrants posted rounds in the 70s at The Meadows (Asbury, Iowa).

Joe Leibfried scored a Loras-low 152/+9 after posting matching rounds of 76. Leibfried earned a top-ten finish (8th) as a result.

Noel Frideres was the other Duhawk to shoot in the 70s in both rounds, carding a 77 Sunday and a 78 on Monday. Bubba Carter and Sam Herrmann each shot 78 at The Meadows on Sunday and finished in the top half of the field with an 80 and 82 on Sunday, respectively.

Loras will travel to Storm Lake, Iowa to play in the Buena Vista Spring Invite next weekend. The Beavers will also host half of the Iowa Conference Championships at Lake Creek later this spring.
