Oct. 20, 2017

VERO BEACH, Fla. – Louisiana Tech will compete in the Quail Valley Intercollegiate hosted by McNeese State at Quail Valley Golf Course in Vero Beach, Florida on Monday and Tuesday.

Head coach Matt Terry and Co. will join a strong field that includes South Florida, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Maryland, Louisville, Memphis, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Cincinnati, Southern Miss, Middle Tennessee, Jacksonville, ULM and McNeese State.

The 54-hole event will include 36 holes on Monday starting at 8 a.m. and the final 18 holes on Tuesday starting at 8 a.m.

Tech will be represented this weekend by Joacim Ahlund, Felix Paalson, Karsten Green, Ryan Alford and Nick Daniel. Ahlund and Paalson have been Tech’s most consistent performers this fall. Ahlund sports a 73.25 scoring average and has a pair of top 15 finishes in first three events of the season while Paalson boasts a 73.00 scoring average and has finished in the top 22 of all three events.

“I just want to see us play better as a team,” said Terry. “Joacim and Felix have both played very steady golf for us. We just need some other guys to step up and provide some more consistency. They have the ability. It’s a matter of doing it during these events. It will be another great field for us to compete against at another great golf course.”
