The final rounds will take place at Honeywell Golf Course in Wabash, Indiana on May 5-6.
The conference champion will earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III National Championships which will be held on May 15-18 in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida.

Transy’s Justin Tereshko (Madison, Ind./H.S.) finished second at the HCAC championship last spring and will look for MVP honors this time around.
