This past Friday, Sept. 22, the men’s golf team headed to Joliet to partake in the CCIW Preview Tournament. This is their third tournament of the year.
Last year, the golf team finished 113-82-2 which was good for sixth place in the CCIW. They are looking to come back better this year, and improve their ranking within the conference and the nation.
Senior, Gabe Askam, has a positive outlook on this season and the future of Augustana’s men’s golf.
“I see this team as being one of the best Augustana has had in the four years I have been here,” Askam said. “We have an extremely talented group of freshman that will definitely lead the team to more successes in the future.”
Head Coach, Paul Delvecchio has a similar view on the team’s future.
“There are some really good young guys on the team and they continue to learn and improve,” Delvecchio stated. “With the help of some upperclassmen, we should be in good shape.”
With a positive outlook on the season, the team has clear goals going into each tournament and hopes to use these goals as a means to prepare for future matches.
