On the Division II side, there are a number of teams looking to dethrone Kirkwood, who has won the last four regional titles. DMACC, Southwestern and NIACC are all giving chase while Southeastern, Iowa Central, Northeast and Iowa Lakes all look to get in the mix. Hawkeye joins an already competitive region.
Eagle Golf preview, Kirkwood is ready to get things rolling this spring season. The Eagles are looking forward to competing in a great region for yet another year. Kirkwood has many goals for 2019 but they will be focusing hard on reaching the full potential of how good they can really be. The Eagles are returning Dawson Peters, a Regional Medalist in 2018 and competitive Ryan Morrison, who earned eight top 10 finishes and three top-five finishes in 2018. Peters averages a per-18 score of 75.15 and Morrison, 75.71. Kirkwood can also look to North Dakota State transfer Ben Epperly for leadership throughout the 2019 season.
