Benedictine University men's golf coach Frank Janczak told anyone who would listen that his young Eagles' team could be good this year. After the first Northern Athletics Conference tournament of the season, people may listen. Picked to finish fifth in the NAC pre-season poll, Benedictine opened the fall season by winning the Marian College Invitational in Fond du Lac, Wis. The Eagles shot a team composite score of 622, edging out Aurora University at 623. Milwaukee School of Engineering was third in the 10-team event with a score of 627. Benedictine placed three individuals in the top-10 finishers and all four scoring players within the top-20. Senior Andrew Delaney (Wheaton, Ill./Wheaton-Warrenville South H.S.) was the team's highest finisher. Delaney shot rounds of 75 and 76, for a total of 151 and a third place finish. Delaney finished two strokes out of first place on the par-72 course. The sophomore tandem of R.J. Schwalbach (New Berlin, Wis./New Berlin West H.S.) and Jon Price (Aurora, Ill./Marmion Academy) matched each other stroke-for-stroke, going 78-78 for a total of 156, finishing tied for sixth place. Freshman Ryan Feldman (Glenbeulah, Wis./Plymouth H.S.) was the fourth scoring member for the Eagles with a total of 159 (78-81). Feldman's effort was good enough for a 17th place tie in the final individual standings.
