Alex Cusumano and the Ramblers are hoping to defend their Horizon League Championship this weekend.

April 23, 2013

This past Monday, on a rare warm day in Chicago, we were finally able to work on our swings outdoors. The limited opportunities to practice this spring season have only made our desire to practice even greater. We will also have time to practice in Florida prior to the first round of the tournament that begins on Friday.

We have awaited the opportunity to defend and repeat our Horizon League Conference Championship since the start of the season in August. Nothing else matters except our performance at the El Campéon Course at Mission Inn Resort this upcoming weekend. Three of the five guys on the team played the course last year, and we all played exceptionally well. We are excited to get down to the Sunshine State, where hot and dry conditions will test our ability to adapt to a completely different style of golf than we have played the past three weeks.

As we compete at the Horizon League Championship meet for the final time, we want nothing more than to defend our title. Since 1996, in an era where Cleveland State, University of Detroit, and Wright State have dominated the Horizon League Golf Championships, our team expects to make our final mark in the history books with back-to-back wins.
