Kenai’s Dye leads college golf team at NACC tournament

Kenai golfer Max Dye posted the lowest round of the Marian University (Wisconsin) men’s team in the opening rounds of the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Championship held Sunday and Monday.

Contested at the Whistling Straits Irish course in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, the first and second rounds of the championship tournament will be followed up in late April at the Stonebridge Country Club in Aurora, Illinois.

Dye, a 2017 Kenai Central High grad, finished the two-day event tied for 10th among 41 competitors after carding a 5-over 77 on day two. Dye shot 82 on Sunday but the following day’s heroics left him with a 36-hole score of 159 on the 6,800-yard course. Dye sits 11 strokes behind the lead.

Dye entered the weekend as the best Marian golfer with an average round score of 78.5 shots and a current low of 76. Dye’s weekend efforts in the NACC championships helped Marian to a fifth-place team standing among nine schools, with a combined over-par score of plus-80. Edgewood College (Madison, Wisconsin) leads the way with a combined over-par score of plus-40.
