9/05 Concordia Golfer Records First Career Hole-In-One.
Concordia first year student Andrew Beliveau (Alexandria MN, Alexandria
H.S.) recorded his first career hole-in-one while playing a practice round
at Village Green Golf Club. Beliveau's ace occurred on the fourth hole
that was playing at 158 yards and into a 30 mph wind. He hit a five iron
that landed two feet beyond the pin and spun back into the hole. The team
is in preparation for their first tournament, the Concordia Invitational,
which will be held on September 9th at the Meadows Golf Course.
2000 Season Preview
The 1999 Concordia men's golf team went through
a period of adjustment. The team had a new coach, Peter
Hovde, and they also had to find a way to replace their top two golfers
from 1998. The 2000 Cobber golf team will hope a year of familiarity
will help bring them back to the top of the MIAC. Seth
Johnson (Sr., Devils Lake, ND) will lead the team, as he posted a career
high ninth place finish in the MIAC last year. He was also the team's number
one golfer from a year ago with a 78.1 average. Also coming back
to add depth to the team will be junior Mike Hagen
(Moorhead, MN) who was an all conference performer in 1998 and earned all
academic honors last year. He finished last year as Concordia's number
two golfer with a 79.8 average. Sophomore Adam
Hanson (Barrett, MN, West Central Area H.S.) should benefit from a
years experience, and give the Cobbers a strong core of golfers. The team
will also rely on a number of young golfers that will challenge for the
remaining two spots on the team.
