DECATUR, Ill. — The Indian Hills golf team showed their consistency on Saturday at the Big Blue Spring Classic.

The Warriors not only won the tournament, but they extended their lead to beat out second-place Millikin University, 594 to 600.
Justin Weber tied for third place as an individual with a two-round total of 147, just two strokes behind medalist Wes Hillen of Milliken.
