Sunday’s final round of play in the Mid-American Conference Men’s Golf Championship at Rich Harvest Farms was canceled due to persistent weather delays.

Based upon the 54-hole final scores from Saturday, the Huskies finish the tournament in seventh-place with a three-round total score of 905.

Play began at 8 a.m. Sunday before the first weather delay of the final round halted action at around 10:15 a.m.

Following a four-hour delay, play resumed for about two hours until a second delay finally forced the cancelation of the final round at 4:30 p.m.

“Obviously we are disappointed that we were unable to finish today’s final round,” said NIU head coach Tom Porten.

“But our congratulations go out to Kent State on an excellent tournament. I want to thank the Rich family for allowing us to use their spectacular venue to host our conference championship. It means a great deal for our conference to be able to play this event on one of the finest courses in the country. I would also like to thank all of the staff from Rich Harvest Farms, the MAC and NIU, as well as the volunteers, for making this a successful event.”

NIU freshman Thomas Dunne (Dublin, Ohio/Dublin Coffman) is the highest-placing Huskie finishing in a tie for eighth with a 54-hole total of 220.
