Eagle Golf NCAA Championship blog #2

Edgewood College senior Logan Kranz is providing a blog diary of the Eagle men's golf team's experiences at the NCAA Division III Championships in Florida. His second post is below and his first entry is here.

Hey Everyone!

Back again to let you guys know how everything’s going… we just got a bunch of info regarding our trip to nationals last night. Coach had the conference call to get a bunch of info so we met as a team last night over some delicious Rocky Rococo’s!! :)

Here’s a little breakdown of our trip:

- We’ll be leaving campus on Saturday morning at eight and will hop in the van for a ride down to Milwaukee to catch a 11:15 flight to Kansas City. We then leave Kansas City to head to Orlando where we will be for the week of nationals.

- Sunday is our first practice round starting in the morning and some of us will help out with a clinic helping kids wanting to learn golf through the Special Olympics following the round. After that I’m sure we will be putting in a few more hours of solid practice and then it’s off to dinner and a relaxing night with the team.

- Monday morning we have our practice round on the other course being played for the tournament and then we will continue to practice throughout the day since it is our final preparation for the actual tournament. Monday night we are lucky enough to attend a banquet dinner that the tournament is having for us.

- Tuesday morning is when it all begins… First round of nationals with times not scheduled yet. Since there are two courses we play, we will play one course on Tuesday and the other course on Wednesday.

- Wednesday is the second round of the tournament and a big day because after this round there will be a cut. Hopefully we play well enough to advance on to the final two rounds of nationals…something no other team from the NAC has ever done!!!

- Thursday/Friday are the final two rounds of the tournament so hopefully we will be busy playing some golf!!!

I’ll be checking back in with you guys on Friday, but until then…

Go Eagles!
