Lilleboe Gets Hot Early to Capture Birchmont Title

BEMIDJI, MINN (August 1, 2010) -- All American Eric Lilleboe mixed an opening bogey with two birdies and an eagle in the first four holes to take an early 2- up lead over Kevin Krigbaum in the the 86th annual Birchmont Golf Tournament in Bemidji, Minnesota. Lilleboe would build on that lead and cap the tournament with another eagle on the par-5 15th hole to win the championship 5 and 4.

Lilleboe was one of nine players to earn first-team All-America recognition and lone representative from the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC). The selection of Lilleboe represents the 10th time in which a Ferris State men's golf student-athlete has attained All-America status. He also is the first individual in the program's history to receive first-team accolades.

Rick Passot defeated Curt Howard 2 and 1 in the executive division. Braden Ohmen took down Dakotah Brunelle in the junoor division 4 and 3. In the ladies division Rachel Roller palyed stellar 1-under par golf to knock out Cyndney Hasselberg.
