Bremner Qualifies for Nationals

Chiefs finish 4th in Region IV

Waubonsee Community College's Alex Bremner placed eighth overall at the Region IV Tournament to qualify for the 2013 NJCAA Division II National Finals. Fighting three straight days of chilly temperatures, occasional rain and wind at Prairie View Golf Course in Byron, the sophomore from Indian Creek High School turned in three solid rounds of golf. Bremner carded a 77 the first and second days of the tournament. He finished his third round with a 79 for a three-day total of 233, nine strokes back of medalist Cory Bender from Black Hawk College. Bremner will be the lone representative for Waubonsee at the National Tournament. The four-day event begins next spring on May 21, 2013, in Scottsboro, Alabama, at the Goose Pond Colony Golf Course.

Paced by Bremner, Waubonsee placed fourth in the Region IV team standings with a three-day total of 968. Waubbonsee tallied a 331 on the first day, compiled a 320 on day two and carded a 317 on the final day. Black Hawk College won the team crown with a total of 916, well ahead of second place Carl Sandburg College, which booked a team score of 951. The Chiefs' Matt Milauskas tied for 16th overall with a three-day total of 243. Nick Pavlik shot a 248, Matt Anderson fired a 249 and Mike Wenc booked a 258 to round out Waubonsee's participants.

Bremner's performance over the weekend capped off a three-week stretch of solid golf by the right-hander. On Sept. 15 he posted the top individual score to earn medailist honors at the two-day Illinois Valley Invitational Tournament, rallying from 19th place after the opening round. Just two days later, Bremner shot a sizzling 3-under 69 to grab medalist honors in leading Waubonsee's golfers to the top spot at an Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference (ISCC) match on their home course, Blackberry Oaks Golf Course in Bristol. The Chiefs eventually placed second in conference as Bremner finished second individually as the lone Waubonsee golfer to earn All-ISCC status. Then on Oct. 6 Bremner shot a 2-over par 74 to finish fifth overall at the Prairie View Classic Tournament.
