Foresters Finish in the Middle of the Pack at Midwest Region Fall Classic

Freshmen Jack Dwyer and Connor Lindley were each at 4-over in Saturday's final round as Lake Forest climbed a spot in the standings and tied for 18th place at the 36-team Midwest Region Fall Classic.

Dwyer's second round included a pair of birdies in the three-hole stretch and 11 pars. He also carded an 80 on Friday and led the team while tying for 42nd place out of 192 players overall with a 36-hole score of 156. Lindley turned in one of the field's three eagles on the day, needing just three shots to complete the 508-yard, par-5 fifth hole. His 76 on Saturday was 10 shots better than his opening round and he was tied-for-82nd overall.

All five of the Foresters in the event were freshman. James Johnson posted back-to-back rounds of 80 and was tied-for-67th in the field while Anthony Scaletta tied for 91st with a 163 and Carlos Garcia Bodini's 177 was tied-for-169th.

Lake Forest's 313 in round two marked a 15-shot improvement over the team's score on Friday. The tournament took place on the North Course at Eagle Ridge Resort in Galena, Illinois, and the par-72 course covered 6884 yards.

Aurora University won the event with a two-day score of 591, seven strokes better than runner-up Edgewood College.
