UCCS Takes on Division II's Top Teams at Golfweek Fall Preview
SUNRIVER, Ore. - The University of Colorado Colorado Springs men's golf team will take on some of the top teams in the nation during the Golfweek Division II Fall Invitational at the Sunriver Resort Crosswater Course in Sunriver, Ore. The first round will begin at 10 a.m. MDT.
Grant Dean, Spencer Biersdorff, Conrad Isley, Kevin Witte and Eddie DeLashmutt will represent the Mountain Lions along with six nationally-ranked teams and six teams receiving votes, including UCCS. The golfers will be paired with golfers from Missouri-St. Louis and Hawaii-Hilo and will begin on the first four holes of the course.
Dean was the RMAC Golfer of the Week after the Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational to start the season, and was the top golfer for the Mountain Lions at the first RMAC meet of the season. Biersdorff led UCCS at last week's conference event as an unattached golfer on the team score and shot four strokes under par during the tournament.
This will be the first trip to the Division II preview since the 2008-09 season. That season was also an RMAC and regional championship season for the Mountain Lions. Live results from the tournament will be available through GolfStat.
