The tournament features 18 teams, including three other Ohio Valley Conference teams – Morehead State, Murray State and Eastern Kentucky. Among the teams joining host Louisville are Kansas, Marquette, Cincinnati, Wisconsin, Rutgers, DePaul, Bowling Green, Dayton, Arkansas-Little Rock, Illinois State and Marshall.

Marco Iten“This is probably the best field we’ll play in all year,” said Govs head coach Kirk Kayden. “Our guys have worked hard to prepare for this challenge all week and they’re highly motivated after the way they played last week. Marco (Iten) and Anthony (Bradley) both played here last year, so they’ll be big help in preparing.”

Austin Peay will take the same lineup which played last week at the UK Bluegrass Fall Invitational. Spurred by sophomore Trey Tarpley’s third-place finish, the Govs topped four OVC teams to finish fifth as a team. Tarpley, who shot a final-round 67, was named the OVC’s Golfer of the Week.

Trey TarpleyThis week, Tarpley returns to the lineup at No. 3. Bradley had the Govs other top-10 finish last week and remains as the team’s No. 1, while Drew Miller moves into the No. 2 spot. Iten and junior Dustin Korte round out the Govs lineup.

Experience should factor in for Iten and Bradley. At last year’s Cardinal Collegiate the Govs finished 13th of 16 teams. Iten led the Govs with a four-over par 220, while Bradley was right behind him with an 11-over par 227.
