A-State in Contention for Quail Valley Intercollegiate Title

October 15, 2018

VERO BEACH, Fla. (10/15/18) – The Arkansas State men’s golf team slipped from first to third place in the Quail Valley Intercollegiate standings Monday, but is just five strokes behind leader South Florida after shooting a second-round 284 at the Quail Valley Golf Club.

The Red Wolves began play yesterday with a 279, which was its third lowest single-round score of the season and positioned them atop the 16-team field. A-State now holds a 13-under 563 for both rounds combined, but North Florida and South Florida moved ahead of the Red Wolves in the standings with a 558 and 559, respectively.

A-State holds a five-stroke advantage over fourth-place Michigan State, while also leading teams such as Notre Dame, ULM, Memphis, Texas State, Little Rock, Nebraska and Maryland. Like the Red Wolves, North Florida, Michigan State and Maryland are all receiving votes in the Bushnell Golfweek Coaches Poll.

Junior Zan Luka Stirn shot a season-best 69 for each of the first two rounds and is currently tied for seventh place to lead Arkansas State with a combined 138. Joined by senior Joel Wendin, and juniors Julien Sale and Matthew Cole, Stirn is one of four Red Wolves among the top-20 individual leaders.

Wendin climbed seven places in the standings to tied for ninth after carding a second-round 68, giving him a combined 139. His score Monday tied his lowest round of the season.

Sale carded a first-round 68 that had him tied for second place, but he tacked seven strokes onto that score for the second round to drop him into a tie for 19th place with a 143 total. Also tied for 19th, Cole recorded a 71 and 72 for the first and second rounds, respectively.

Also competing for the Red Wolves, freshman Luka Naglic is tied for 44th place with a combined 147 (71-76).

The Quail Valley Intercollegiate will wrap up tomorrow with the third and final round.
