Concord, BSC golfers selected for D-2 regionals

INDIANAPOLIS — After another successful season that included winning a West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference championship, the Concord University men's golf team has been selected to compete in the 2013 NCAA Division II Men's Golf Championships.

Concord earned an automatic bid into the NCAA Championships thanks to winning the WVIAC title at the conference championships.

The Mountain Lions will begin competition at the NCAA Atlantic-East Regional Championships, May 6-8 at the Oglebay Resort in Wheeling.

Bluefield State will also make its fourth straight trip to the same event.

Bluefield State finished seventh in the Atlantic/East Regional and was two strokes behind from a fifth place finish that would have advanced them to the finals.

The Mountain Lions won five tournaments this season, including two WVIAC Regionals as well as the aforementioned conference championship. CU finished the year ranked second in the Atlantic Region by the NCAA behind top-seed Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

CU is led by WVIAC Coach of the Year Will Johnson. Stefan Labuschagne was named the WVIAC Player of the Year while teammates Evan Muscari, Nathaniel Begley and Matt Morgan were All-WVIAC honorees.

The top three teams and the top two student-athletes not with a team from each regional (regardless of region) will advance to the finals May 20-24, at Hershey Country Club in Hershey, Pa.
