Czeh leads Bemidji State to second place at Jamestown Invite

JAMESTOWN, N.D. (Jamestown CC) -- Freshman Will Czeh carded rounds of 72 (E) and 74 (+2) to finish tied for third individually with a 2-over-par 146 and lead the Bemidji State University men's golf team to a second-place finish Monday at the Jamestown Invitational.

Bemidji State trimmed three strokes from its day 1 303 (+15) to complete the event with a 603 (+27), but could not make up any ground on event champion University of Manitoba. The Bisons got off to a six-stroke advantage over the Beavers on Day 1, posting a 297 (+9), and despite BSU's improvements on Day 2, extended their lead to 13 strokes (297-293--590/+14).

Czeh, who finished the event five strokes out of medalist contention, was one of two Beavers to finish among the top 10 on the leaderboard. Aaron Leintz took eighth place, carding rounds of 80 (+8)and a BSU-best 70 (-2) on Monday to finish at 6-over-par 150.

Czeh stands as the second newcomer to lead the Beavers in tournament play after fellow freshman Gabe Douglas won the BSU Invitational Sept. 13-14, posting a 1-over-par (69-76) 145.

Manitoba's Devon Schade posted the best individual score in the event, firing rounds of 71 (-1) and 70 (-2) to finished with a 3-under-par 141.

The Beavers will be back in action Sunday and Monday when they travel to St. Cloud, Minn. and the St. Cloud Country Club to participate in the SCSU Huskies Invitational.
