Complete MIAC Meet Preview

MOORHEAD, Minn. (9/30/09)-- There is an air of

excitement surrounding the 2009 Concordia-Moorhead

men’s golf team. The Cobbers are coming off their best

regular-season in recent history and are poised to make

a run at the top of the conference at the MIAC

Championship Meet. Concordia is buoyed by the fact that

they have posted a pair of school records entering the

conference meet. The Cobbers broke the school record

for low team score in a single round when they fired a

282 at the Jamestown Invitational and also posted a

second team score in the 280’s when they fired a 288 at

the NDSU Erv Kaiser Invite. It’s the first time in program

history they have had two rounds in the same season

under 290.

To go along with their team success, the Cobbers

have also had individuals post several low numbers. Three

different Concordia golfers have posted five

scores in the 60’s this season – another team first.

Junior Zach Kappes (Moorhead, Minn.) and

sophomore Pat Deitz (Moorhead, Minn.) both tied

the school record of 68 when they matched that

score at the Jamestown Invitational. For their

efforts they were named the MIAC Co-Golfers of

the Week on Sept. 8. Kappes also fired a 69 in the

first round of the Concordia Invite. Joining Kappes

and Deitz in the sub-70 group is freshman Andrew

Whitchurch (Litchfield, Minn.). Whitchurch has

shot a pair of 69’s this season. He opened the year

with a 69 at the Jamestown Invitational and then

backed it up with the same score in the second

round of the NDSU Erv Kaiser Invite.

Kappes, Deitz and Whitchurch are a part of a group

of eight CC players that are all averaging under

79.0. The Cobbers also have 10 golfers with

averages in the 70’s. Kappes leads the team with a

74.1 average and Deitz is close behind at 74.3. Whitchurch

checks in at No.3 with a 75.4 stroke average. Rounding out

the top five for the Cobbers at the MIAC Meet will be

super senior Erik Weiss (Moorhead, Minn.)

and sophomore Tyler Champ

(Champlin, Minn./Meadow Creek Christian HS).

Weiss has posted a top 10 finish this season and

has posted the most consistent season of his career. Champ

is averaging 77.3 strokes per round this

year and is coming off his best finish of the year. He

led the Cobbers at the St. Olaf Invite by finishing

sixth with a two-round total of 150.
