Ferris State men's golf team beats rival GVSU to win 22nd GLIAC Championship

The Ferris State University men's golf team captured its 22nd all-time Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Championship by beating rival Grand Valley State University in the league finale on Sunday in Augusta, Mich.

After earning the No. 3 seed following the stroke play portion of the league championships, the Bulldogs advanced to the medal match round and beat Wayne State on Saturday 3-2 to reach the league final. In the championship match, Ferris State then knocked off No. 1 seed GVSU by a 3-0-2 score to emerge with the league title.

This year marks the fifth consecutive time in which the Bulldogs have reached at least the semifinal round at the league men's golf championships and Ferris State’s third title since 2019. Ferris State also won the 2021 championship after no tournament was held in 2020 and reached the finals in 2022 before falling in the semifinals a year ago.

Overall, the Bulldog men's golf squad has now captured 22 GLIAC Men's Golf Championships in school history.

In Sunday's showdown against the Lakers, Ferris State’s McCoy Biagioli was a four-stroke winner while Zach Koerner won his match by seven strokes. Both Nathan Kraynyk and Sam Havey forged ties in their head-to-head contests before Caleb Bond came up with a three-stroke triumph for the Bulldogs. Ferris State did not drop any of the five matches to the Lakers.

The 2024 GLIAC Championships continued the format established four years ago with each league school competing in 36 holes of stroke play and the top four teams advancing to the semifinals. The head-to-head medal match play bracket format for the semifinals and finals was similar to the current format utilized at the NCAA Championships.

This year's event was held again in Augusta with action at the Gull Lake View Golf Club and Resort near Battle Creek on the Stoatin Brae Golf Club course. The par 71 course measured at 6,742 yards. Gull Lake View Golf Club and Resort has become one of the largest golf resorts in the world, featuring six championship courses in one destination.

Ferris State, which was ranked fifth this past week in the NCAA Midwest Regional Rankings entering the conference championships, will await the official NCAA selection announcement set for later this month.
