Hill; Beavers edge Minnesota, Crookston in duel
BEMIDJI, Minn. (Bemidji Town and Country Club) -- Sophomore Casey Hill (Virginia, Minn.) fired a one-under-par 71 today to lead the Bemidji State University men’s golf team to a duel meet victory over University of Minnesota, Crookston.

Wind gusts out of the northwest for most of the day made play on the par 72, 6,535-yard Bemidji Town and Country Club difficult, but with a 71 (-1) Hill posted the day’s only score under par to claim medallist honors.  

With an 18-hole team total of 294 (+6), Hill and BSU teammates occupied the top four individual positions and edged the Golden Eagles (325, +37) by 31 strokes.  Jim Foss (Jr., Roseau, Minn.) took second place with a 73 (+1), Bemidji, Minn. native Chris Curb (Fr.) posted a 74 (+2) to finish third and Jesse Nelson (Jr., Pine River, Minn.) rounded out the team in fourth place after carding a four-over-par 76.

The BSU men’s golf team concludes a busy week of competition by traveling to Onalaska, Wis. to compete in the WSU Invitational this weekend.  The Beavers will play a practice round at the par-71, 6,751-yard Gulf Club at Cedar Creek Saturday before opening the two-day, 36-hole WSU Invitational Sunday.
