Silvis, Ill. – Junior men’s golfer Joey Medora took the lead in the first round of Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Championship and never looked back. Medora was crowned the CCAC’s top golfer after a dominating performance at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois. With Medora leading the way, the Saints finished in third place, four strokes away from a NAIA National Tournament team bid.

Medora’s two under par performance ran away from the rest of the field by six strokes. Medora started off the Championship with a first round 70 that gave him just the momentum he needed heading into Tuesday’s round two to take the title. The junior started the day hot and was -3 through 7 holes, but a few miscues held him at even part after 10. After collecting himself on the back nine, Medora finished his round with an even par 72, which earned the NAIA National Tournament Individual bid.

Alex Meagher carded rounds of 78 and 74 to finish tied for 11th place. Meagher’s 74 on Tuesday jumped him five spots in the final standings. Brendon Shibley fired matching 79’s at the tournament championship to finish in 15th place overall. The trio of Medora, Meagher, and Shibley have led the Saints throughout the entire year.

Greg Fean and Zach McCarthy finished in 55th and 56th after two day rounds of 176 and 177, respectively. McCarthy battled through a leg injury to qualify and compete in the final team tournament of the year.

Medora will now wait until May 16th to compete in the NAIA National Tournament hosted at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois. Congratulations from all of Holy Cross to Joey on his well-deserved accomplishment!
