Glenview, Ill. - Brian Van De Motter (79-74-73) carded a one-over par 73 to lead the Loyola University Chicago men's golf team in the final round of the Kemper Sports Intercollegiate in Glenview, Ill. this afternoon. Northwestern laid claim to the top spot on the team leaderboard. The Wildcats' Jack Perry (67-67-66) earned medalist honors.
Constant rain throughout the night left the course soft and wet for final round play. As groups took to the course on Tuesday morning, temperatures were in the mid 40s. They would rise into the 50s as play continued with light winds of 5-10 mph.
"Obviously we didn't play as well as we hoped we would over the last two days," said Loyola head coach Adam Kwiatkoski. "We had some nice individual performances but we all expected to have a better showing. I am happy with the way Brian finished play today."
Van De Motter, out of Rocky River, Ohio, missed out on tying his season-low by a single stroke this afternoon. His day got off to a great start as he birdied his opening hole. The senior improved his score throughout each round of the tournament.
Junior Alex Cusumano (81-78-76) and freshman PJ Riner (79-80-76) each capped off play with four-over par 76s. Cusumano sank a pair of birdie putts on the back nine while Riner did the same on the front.
Loyola will return to action over the weekend at the Boilermaker Invitational in West Lafayette, Ind., April 20-21, in what will serve as their final tune-up before the 2013 Horizon League Championships in Howey in the Hills, Fla.
