Ferris State Men's Golf Tied For Fourth Overall Heading Into Final Round At NCAA Super Regional

Big Rapids, Mich. - The Ferris State University men's golf team had another strong day on Friday (May 10) in the NCAA Division II Midwest/Central Super Regional Championships in Oklahoma and presently sits tied for fourth overall heading into the final round.

The Bulldogs shot a two-under par 278 team figure in round two at the KickingBird Golf Course in Edmond and presently hold a 557 team figure at three-under par following the first two rounds of action.

FSU is tied with both Henderson State (Ark.) and Missouri S&T for fourth place going into Saturday's (May 11) final round. The top five teams after Saturday's play in the 54-hole super regional will advance to the NCAA D2 National Championships.

Currently, a total of only six strokes separate the top six teams overall in the 20-team field. Harding (Ark.) holds first-place at nine-under followed by Grand Valley State (-7) and Central Oklahoma (-4) in the top three in front of FSU, Henderson State and Missouri S&T.

Ferris State's Caleb Bond and Nathan Kraynyk both are currently tied for second place overall individually as each have two-day totals of 135 overall. Bond shot a three-under 67 on Friday while Kraynyk was at two-under 68 on the par 70 course.

FSU freshman McCoy Biagioli carded a 69 on Friday and is tied for 17th in the field with a 139 figure while Zach Koerner shot a 74 and is tied for 86th at 148 overall. Finally, Drayton Cleaver notched a 74 in Friday's action and is 106th in the field.

The par 70 course measured in at 6,944 yards.

The Bulldogs are slated to return to the tee for the final round on Saturday (May 11) morning.

The Midwest/Central Regional is being hosted by Southern Nazarene University and consists of 10 teams from the Midwest Region along with 10 from the Central Region. Four individuals from each region are also competing in the 54-hole tournament.

The top five teams and the top two student-athletes not with a team from each regional will advance to the finals set for May 21-25 at the Orange Country National Golf Center and Lodge in Winter Garden, Fla. The finals will be hosted by Rollins College and the Greater Orlando Sports Commission.

In 2017, the Bulldogs earned runner-up honors in the 2017 NCAA-II Midwest/Central Super Regional in Kearney, Neb., before going on to a national quarterfinal finish. In 2019, the Bulldogs placed tied for third at the super regional and reached the NCAA D2 National Championships, placing 20th overall. FSU also made the field three years ago in 2021, finishing 10th overall in Super Regional play, before earning a berth and placing ninth overall last season in Ferris State's most recent appearance.

This year makes this the 19th time in the past 21 years in which the Bulldogs have had representation in the NCAA Tournament when it has been held. The stretch of NCAA Championship representation in men's golf ranks as one of the best stretches in the country.

Ferris State captured its 22nd all-time GLIAC Championship by beating rival Grand Valley State in the league finale on April 14 in Augusta, Mich.
