    DISAPPOINTING 10th AT NORTHERN;
    LEEN SLIPS ON FINAL DAY

    September 28, 1997

    EAST LANSING, Mich. - The IU men 's golf team rounded out the Northern Intercollegiate in much the same dismal way it started. The team failed to better their position in the final round today after finishing in 10th after the first two rounds on Saturday.

    IU posted a three round total of 911, 43 strokes off the tournament medalist, Kent State. The Hoosiers also found three Big Ten rivals ahead of them on the leader board: Minnesota (T2 - 878), Michigan (5 - 890), and Purdue (8 - 905).

    The leading Hoosier continued to be Randy Leen. After finishing the first day at even par in a tie for sixth, Leen carded a three-over 75, dropping into 10th overall.

    On the positive side, IU 's top three golfers of Leen, Josh Brewer, and Chick Linski shot all nine of their combined rounds in the 70s. Brewer, who finished in a tie for 18th, showed improvement over the three rounds, carding scores of 76, 74, and 73. The Northern marked Linski 's first tournament appearance as a Hoosier after transferring from Central Florida over the summer. He finished in a tie for 37th.

    The Hoosiers will next play at the Legends Invitational, October 6-7, in Franklin, Indiana.
