BATAVIA, Ohio -- The Quincy University men's golf team turned in its best performance of the spring, placing third out of 29 teams in The Jewell Regional this weekend at par-71 Elks Run Golf Course.

The Hawks turned in a two-day total of 598, two strokes behind second-place Ferris State. Malone won the tournament with a 578.

Quenten Hooker led Quincy by placing third individually. The junior from Pleasant Plains, Ill., was tied for first place after Saturday's first round and fired a 2-over-par 73 on the final 18 holes to finish with a 141 -- three strokes behind medalist Nate Tarter of Malone.

Andrew Boudreau was Quincy's low score on Sunday, shooting a 2-under 69 to finish 14th with a 148.

The Hawks' other scores were Brant Leggett (152), John Schmidtke (157) and Aaron Drese (178).

Cooper, a golden doodle, is teacher Erin Armbruster's trained therapy dog, and his pawprints reach beyond just her classroom. "He helps out the students. He's a very good dog," fifth-grader Myles Cain said.
