WVIAC Men's Golf Championship Opens On Monday
WVIAC Staff
10/14/2007

(PRINCETON, W.VA)---Defending NCAA Division II East Region champion Fairmont State is the top seed as play begins on Monday at the WVIAC Men's Golf Championship.  The Falcons have a pair of tournament titles so far this fall, including a WVIAC record 20-under par effort at the WVIAC Central Regional.

Preseason favorite Ohio Valley, West Liberty State, Concord, and defending champion Charleston hold down the second through fifth seeds.  Charleston captured last season's WVIAC championship in a playoff over Ohio Valley. 

This season's conference tournament features a new venue and date.  The championship, which has traditionally been held in the spring at Cacapon State Park, moves to the Stonewall Resort's Palmer Course.  The 7,149 yard, par-72 layout is ranked 23rd among the nation's top 100 resort courses by Golfweek magazine and should provide a stern test to WVIAC linksters.

Fairmont State is led by the trio of Justin Caroli, Will Gautreau, and Ben Palmer.  Caroli captured the WVIAC Central with a six-under total of 138 earlier this month.  Ohio Valley has received solid play from Sean Burke, Paul Raines, and Ben Harwood.

West Liberty State senior Matt Hicks may carry the favorite's role into the individual competition.  The Sissonville, WV native is considered one of the state's top amateur golfers following a summer that saw him finish second in the West Virginia Amateur and qualify for the U.S. Amateur.  The senior captured last week's WVIAC Southern Regional at Pipestem with rounds of 66 and 69.

Tee times for the 54-hole event run from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. each day Monday through Wednesday.  The champion earns an automatic bid to the 2008 NCAA Division II East Regional.
