Ankeny, Iowa - The Gustavus Adolphus men’s golf team defeated Grand View University in a dual match by a final score of 293-304 at the Otter Creek Country Club Saturday afternoon. Thanks to mother nature, it was just the second competition of the spring for the Gusties, the other a loss to Flagler in a dual match on April 5th.
Gustavus took the top two spots in the dual. Senior Alex Kolquist (Sr., Hermantown, Minn.) recorded a one-under-par 71 on the afternoon to lead the way. Tyler McMorrow (Jr., St. Cloud, Minn.) followed with an even-par 72 to place second.
Trevor Gervais (Sr., Fergus Falls, Minn.) tied for third after shooting a one-over-par 73 and Andrew Oakes (Jr., Hermantown, Minn.) added a five-over-par 77 for sixth place. Coby Rowley (Sr., Prior Lake, Minn.) also competed in the match, shooting a nine-over-par 81 to finish ninth.
“It was nice to finally get in another competitive round of golf, which has been tough with the weather as of late,” stated head coach Scott Moe. ”Conditions on the golf course today, especially early, were a little challenging, but the guys responded well. I was happy with our effort and am looking forward to the Saint John’s Invitational next weekend.”
As Coach Moe mentioned, the Gusties will next tee off in the Saint John’s Invitational, scheduled for next Saturday, April 27th and Sunday, April 28th. Saturday’s first round will be played at Blackberry Ridge in Sartell, Minn. while Sunday’s round two action will take place at the Monticello Country Club in Monticello, Minn.
