  • The Mount Union men's golf team ended strong with 304 on Sunday to finish second at the 2012 Ohio Athletic Conference Men's Golf Championships at River Greens Golf Course in West Lafayette.
    The Purple Raiders found themselves trailing Otterbein by 13 strokes entering the final round and trimmed two strokes off that lead, but were unable to defend their conference title. With the runner-up finish, the Raiders have now finished in the top two each of the past seven years.
    Junior Jon Lieser (Minerva/Minerva) led the way for Mount Union, earning All-OAC honors with a 306 (79+80+73+74) to tie for sixth place. His 147 strokes were tied for the fewest over the final 36 holes.
    Senior Colin Broughton (Hartville/Lake) earned All-OAC honors for the second time, carding a 307 (80+77+74+76) to finish in a tie for tenth place.
    Otterbein placed four in the top ten to claim its record 15th conference title. Ben Adams took Medalist honors for the Cardinals after carding a 74 on the final day to catch Ohio Northern's Colin Burns with a four-round tally of 299. Adams then defeated Burns in a playoff hole for the individual title.
