Northern Illinois senior Jeff Dick put together an impressive string of rounds at two tournaments this week. The 2010 All-MAC 2nd team honoree turned in his first top-10 performance of the fall at Illinois State's D.A. Weibring Intercollegiate on Sunday. The Texan posted the Huskies' low score in each of the event's three round en route to helping NIU to an eighth-place finish. Dick continued his roll the next day at Cleveland State's CSU/Telich Sun Life Financial Invitational. The nearly eight-hour overnight road trip did little to slow down the senior, as he turned in rounds of 73 and 75 at the historic Canterbury Golf Club. Dick claimed a tie for 16th, as the final round was rained out on Tuesday. "It was great to see Jeff Dick working very hard on his short game and becoming the patient player he was last spring," NIU men's golf coach Tom Porten said, "He's going to be a big part of our success this year. When he and Andrew [Frame] play well, we can compete with just about any team in the Midwest."
