USI Results Complete Results


CRITTENDON, Ky. The University of Southern Indiana men's golf team tied for second and posted a 36-hole school record at the GOLFEXCHANGEKY.com Classic hosted by Northern Kentucky March 17-18. The classic was played at the Eagle Creek Country Club in Crittendon, Kentucky.

Blake Horner

The Screaming Eagles shot their team-record 568 (285-283), tying Northern Kentucky University (287-281) and finishing five strokes back of the University of Cincinnati, who won the classic with a 563 (285-278). USI was tied with Cincinnati after the first day with a first round 285.

The 568 team-total broke the USI 36-hole record set by the 1993-94 team, which had a 575 at the Millikin College Big Blue Classic.

USI senior Blake Horner, playing as an individual, and sophomore Keaton Bradshaw (Carmi, Illinois) tied for third in the tournament with identical two-round totals of 141. The 141 by Horner (71-70) and Bradshaw (73-68) broke the USI 36-hole record that was set by Chris Compton at the 1999 Big Blue Classic.

Keaton Bradshaw



In addition to Bradshaw, USI senior Ted O'Brien (Santa Claus, Indiana) broke the 70 stroke barrier with a 69 in the first round. O'Brien finished the tournament tied for 16th with a 145 (69-76).

Horner and Bradshaw were joined in the top 10 by junior Nick Frazer (Evansville, Indiana) and junior Blake Hilliard (Olney, Illinois), who tied for seventh. Frazer (72-70) and Hilliard (71-71) recorded two-day totals of 142.

The Eagles return to action March 24-25 in the Wisconsin-Parkside Invitational at the Otter Creek Golf Course in Columbus, Indiana.
