Golf Nets Third Straight SLIAC Sportsmanship Award
ST. LOUIS, Mo. – The Eureka College golf team earned a sixth-place team finish at the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Championship at the Forest Park Golf Club, Tuesday afternoon in St. Louis, Mo. Additionally, the Red Devils earned the SLIAC Sportsmanship team award for the third consecutive spring.
The sportsmanship award, given to a team in every SLIAC-sponsored sport each year, is voted on by opposing league coaches and players. The Eureka golf squad, under the direction of fourth-year head coach Morgan Murphy, also won the award in 2010 and 2011. Eureka’s three Sportsmanship awards are the most by any golf squad in SLIAC history.
The Red Devils finished the three-round event with a team score of 1074 for sixth place. Sophomore Pete Moyemont (Dwight, Ill./Dwight H.S.) fired a 252 to tie for 23rd place overall in the tournament. His opening-round score of 79 was Eureka’s best single-round effort for the tournament. Eureka improved as a team as the tournament progressed, improving by three shots each round.
Webster, behind individual champion Kyler Scott, won the SLIAC team championship with a three-round score of 874. Scott carded a 212 for the tournament, besting runner-up and teammate Tanner Rabb by three strokes. The Gorloks’ team score was 35 shots better than runner-up Spalding.
