MONTICELLO, Minn. – The Gustavus men’s golf team turned in a team score of 294 Friday to finish third in a triangular with Augsburg College and Saint John’s University at Monticello Country Club.

Augsburg and Saint John’s each posted team scores of 291 to tie for first place.

Alec Aunan (Jr. Rock Island, Ill.) led the Gusties, firing a team-low and tying a season-low score of 72 to tie for third place.

“Alec Aunan shot a good score today because he found a way to get the ball in the cup not necessarily from great positions on the course,” said Stuckey. “He really grinded it out.”

Chris Captain (Jr., Rochester, Minn.), Ben Hauge (Fy., Ramsey, Minn.), and Alex Koopmeiners (Sr., St. Cloud, Minn.) followed Aunan, posting rounds of 73, 74, and 75. Sam Majka (Sr., Wayzata, Minn.) also competed in the top-five for the Gusties and turned in a score of 81.

In addition, Max Savini (So., Ramsey, Minn.), Blake Heiman (Jr., River Falls, Minn.), and Parker Tinsley (Sr., Bloomington, Minn.) participated as individuals. They turned in scores of 76, 79, and 85.

“Today was a frustrating day because we once again did not take advantage of an opportunity to position ourselves for a potential bid for the national championship tournament,” said Assistant Coach Randy Stuckey. “We have some very good players and I wish we could have produced better finishes in several tournaments against nationally ranked teams this year in the fall and spring season. We will need to get back to work and prepare for our final tournaments of the spring.”

Gustavus next prepares for the Bobby Krig Invite April 23-34. The Gusties host Sunday’s first round at The Ridges at Sand Creek in Jordan, Minn. and Monday’s final round at Le Sueur Country Club in Le Seuer, Minn.
