JORDAN, Minn. – The Gustavus men’s golf team sits in fifth place after day one Saturday at the MIAC Championships, hosted at Ridges at Sand Creek. The Gusties fired a 301 (+13), which is 18 strokes off the leader St. Thomas. Augsburg is in second at +4, while Saint John’s is in third at +8.

Alec Aunan (Sr., Rock Island, Ill.) led the way for the Gusties, posting an even-par 72, which included six birdies, two bogies, and two doubles. Aunan’s score has him tied for fourth place and four strokes off the lead. Chris Captain (Sr., Rochester, Minn.) came in second for the Gusties with a 73 and is tied for sixth. Ben Hauge (So., Ramsey, Minn.) carded a 77 and is tied for 31st, while Carter Czichotzki (Fy., Moorhead, Minn.) tallied a 79 (t-35th) and Max Ullan (Fy., Blaine, Minn.) an 80 (t-43rd).

“We had two nice scores today out of Alec and Chris,” Head Coach Scott Moe said. “Looking for good scores together tomorrow. We got off to a pretty good start, then we left some shots out there on a couple of holes on the back nine. Looking for a little bit more consistency tomorrow to help us move up the leaderboard heading into day three Monday.”

The second of three rounds begins tomorrow morning.
