Iceton Moves Up at NCAA Golf Regional


 The West Liberty University men’s golf team held onto seventh place in the team standings and Hilltopper standout Matt Iceton moved into the thick of the medal chase after Tuesday’s second round of the NCAA Division II East/Atlantic Regional at the Longaberger Golf Club.

Coach Mike Ricci’s squad overcame a rainy early-morning tee time to shave 10 strokes off its first-round score on Tuesday and stands all alone in seventh place after 36 holes.
Wilmington (Del.) took advantage of near-perfect scoring conditions in the afternoon to blow past first-round leader and defending regional champion Indiana (Pa.) and grab a 5-shot lead with a two-day score of 601. 
Indiana is second at 606 with Charleston third at 609. Le Moyne (614) and Millersville (616) round out the top five followed by St. Thomas Aquinas (618), West Liberty (624), Concordia, N.Y. (626), Gannon (627) and Mercyhurst (628). 
Iceton, the reigning Mountain East Conference Player of the Year, shot a 1-over-par 73 on Tuesday to move up to a tie for third place in the medal standings. Wilmington’s Sam Clark is the Day Two leader at even-par 144 with Day One pace-setter Ken Sames of IUP now in second place at 2-over-par 146. Iceton and Wilmington’s Andreas Lunding are tied for third at 3-over-par 147. 
The top three teams at the end of tomorrow’s final round and the top two individuals from the rest of the field will advance to the NCAA Division II National Championship tournament, May 18-22, at Rock Barn Golf & Spa in Conover, N.C.
