Despite it being the summer break, KSU athletes are still doing work as the men golfers did some good things at the Georgia Amateur Golf Championships and The Players Amateur Championships this past weekend. Rising seniors Jimmy Beck and Kelby Burton performed well at their respected tournaments. Beck turned in a Top 10 finish at The Players Championship at the Berkeley Golf Club in South Carolina and Beck finished in second place in the Georgia Amateur Golf Champion- ships in Macon.

Rising sophomore Teremoana Beaucousin, who was the 2014 Atlantic Sun Conference Freshman of the Year, played in the Biarritz Cup in France. He finished in 12th place after posting rounds of 66-68-66-71 for a 5-under par 271.

“I am really proud of our performances this past week. Jimmy has put up great numbers all summer and his consistency is rock solid,” Kennesaw State head coach Jay Moseley told ksuowls.com He’s solidifying the nation’s best amateurs and I expect him to continue his momentum into his senior year.”

This is good for the men’s team as the Owls get ready for the 2014-15 season, which begins in September. The schedule was released on Tuesday and the Owls will make their first appearance in the Tar Heel Intercollegiate (North Carolina), Macdonald Cup (Yale) and the Jones Invitational (Pepperdine).


And speaking of schedules, the soccer team released its 2014 schedule last week and it will feature nine home games. The Owls will kick off the season in Tuscaloosa, Ala. against Alabama on Aug. 22. The will have their home- opener three days later when they face Georgia State at Fifth Third Bank Stadium.

“It is quite an unusual dynamic on our team at the moment because we have our very solid core group of seniors that are coming back and they expect big things,” head coach Rob King told ksuowls.com. “We have a very talented group that’s coming in. We have a real high level of commitment from the returning players and we have excellent leadership in our seniors and really throughout the team.”

The Owls are set to return 13 letter winners, including eight starters, from a team that advanced to the semifinals of the Atlantic Sun Conference semifinals. They finished the 2014 season with a 9-9-1, finishing third in the confer- ence with a 5-3-1 record.
