Loras 3rd/6


The Loras College golf team, along with a handful of other Iowa Conference teams, moved their April 20 schedules around to play an impromptu round at Finkbine Golf Course in Iowa City, Iowa. Originally, many of the teams were going to be in Storm Lake for Buena Vista's annual event. Loras, Wartburg, Dubuque, Coe, and Luther convened for the event, dubbed the Luther Invitational. 


For the Duhawks, it was Jon Nugent leading the way on Saturday. He carded a (+5) 77 to finish in a tie for fourth, just three strokes behind the winning 74  posted by Wartburg's Dominick Smith. Jason Beer and Sam Herrmann shot matching 83's to finish tied for 13th. Jim Gallery was one shot behind them with an 84 (18th place) and James Komorowski shot a 91.


The teams will return to Finkbine this weekend for the first two rounds of the 2013 Iowa Conference Championship. The event will conclude with rounds three and four May 3-4 at Elmcrest Country Club in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
