PORTSMOUTH – Shawnee State University Head Golf Coach Roger Merb is set for his 26th season at the helm of the Bears’ golf team. With his 26th year at the helm of the Bears on the horizon, he recently announced his team’s upcoming fall schedule. The Bears will take part in four tournaments this fall before the bulk of their schedule which will be played in the spring.
The fall season will begin with the team’s first trip back to the Urbana Fall Invitational since the 2007-08 season. The Bears are three-time team champions of this event with the last win coming in 2003. This tournament will run from September 8-9.
The Mid-South Fall Tournament will get underway on September 30 and continue through October 1. The Bears have placed sixth in this fall MSC Tournament in each of the past two seasons.
A new one-day tournament has been added to the fall schedule as the Bears will compete in the Berea Inviational which will take place on October 5. The St. Catharine Fall Tournament will close out the fall schedule on October 14-15. This will be the third straight year SSU travels to this event. The Bears placed 10th last fall and sixth in 2011.
