WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Freshman Dane Worley (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) posted a final-round 74 to spearhead the Drake men's golf team's efforts on the final day of the Boilermaker Invitational on Sunday (April 22) on Kampen Course at the Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex.

The Bulldogs registered a team total of 315 over the final 18 holes to finish with a 54-hole score of 959 (322-322-315=959), to tie Loyola for 16th place.

Worley was +4 through the first four holes of his final round before playing the final 14 holes at -2, including an eagle on the par-4 seventh hole.  He finished with a 242-tournament total to place in 77th place.

"It was a tough six-hour round today as the wind really picked up on the back nine," Drake head coach Matt Lewis commented.  "Dane (Worley) played hard and battled back after being +4 after his first four holes to play the final 14 holes at -2 and Devin (Leland) played pretty solid today, minus one triple.  The rest of the guys once again got bit by the big numbers and had a few bad holes.  We played better as a team, and all in all we have to get back to working on things and working for next weekend at the MVC Championship.

Redshirt freshman Devin Leland (Huxley, Iowa) was the Bulldogs' top finisher posting a final-round 77 for a 240 total, good for a 70th-place tie.

Freshman Blake Huser (Altoona, Iowa) and sophomore Connor Steele (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) carded identical 54-hole scores of 241 to tie for 74th.

Sophomore Matt Ohl (Milford, Iowa) rounded out Drake's efforts registering a score of 249 (82-86-85=249/T-87th).

The Bulldogs conclude their regular season traveling to Hutchinson, Kan., for the State Farm Missouri Valley Conference Championship (April 30-May 1).

DRAKE INDIVIDUAL RESULTS: Devin Leland 240 (82-81-77=240/T-70th), Blake Huser 241 (76-82-83=241/T-74th), Connor Steele 160 (82-78-81=241/T-74th), Dane Worley 242 (83-81=164-74=242/77th) and Matt Ohl 249 (82-86-85=249/87th).
