ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Several former Knights enjoyed strong performances this week during PGA Tour Qualifying School. Connor Arendell and Greg Forest both advanced to qualifying school's second stage, and Nuno Henriques advanced to the second stage of The PGA European Tour Qualifying School.

Arendell and Forest, along with former UCF assistant coach Toby Ragland, all advanced from the Lake Jovita Country Club in Dade City Friday. Competing in a field of 80 golfers for three rounds, Arendell tied for seventh at 207 (-9), Ragland tied for ninth at 208 (-8) and Forest tied for 15th at 210 (-6).

Henriques moved on to the second stage along with 30 other players in Austria earlier this week.

A native of Portugal, Henriques played for the Knights from 2006-11. As a senior in 2010-11, he played in 10 tournaments and recorded five top-20 finishes. Arendell wrapped up his UCF career this past spring. He garnered All-Conference USA First Team honors in 2010-11.

Forest played for the Knights from 2005-09. He was a member of the All-C-USA Second Team as a junior in 2007-08. Ragland spent two years at UCF, working under head coach Bryce Wallor. He helped guide the Knights to two C-USA Championship titles and two berths in the NCAA Regionals.
