Even though school’s out for summer, exciting things are still happening within the athletic department at Post University! Following a fourth place finish at the Atlantic/East NCAA Super Regional last week, the men’s golf team qualified for the 2012 NCAA Division II National Championship, marking the first time in school history that the Eagles will be competing for a national NCAA title.
The Eagles will travel to Louisville, Ky., to vie for the title, playing three rounds of golf against a field of 20 teams from May 15-19 at The Cardinal Club.
If their determination during the regular season is any indication of their upcoming performance in Kentucky, the Eagles’ momentum will be hard to slow. The team already overcame several adversities this season, including playing in the rain for the first two days of the three-day Super Regional, making its advance to the championship quite a feat in itself. Eighth-year head coach Pete Stevens seemed to think so as well. We captured his reaction after the Super Regional on camera:
If any Eagles fans are planning to make the trip down to Kentucky, tickets are available on site, and we’d expect that you show your Post pride on the course!
