NORMAL, Ill. — The Gustavus men’s golf team fielded three teams at the Illinois Wesleyan Invite to open the spring season, finishing 12th, 14th, and 36th of 37 teams at the invite. The Gusties A team posted a two-round score of 310-305-615 to tie for 12th, while the Gusties B team carded a 314-302-616 for a tie at 14th. The final team for the Gusties finished 341-339-680.

Wyatt Wasko (Sr., Lake Elmo) led the first team with a 76-74-150, tying for 23rd place. Wasko finished the weekend with a total of six birdies, including four in round one. Chris Gutuza (Fy., Johannesburg, South Africa) tied for 48th at 79-74-153 with three birdies in the second round.

“We didn’t have a great start today, but played really well and made up a lot of shots and places in the middle, then struggled to finish. We were hoping for a little bit more, but now we have some work to do when we get back,” said Head Coach Scott Moe. “It was a great group to travel with! Fun to finish spring break with an awesome event, some of the teams that will finish towards the top of the national tournament in the spring. Always great to compete.”

The Gusties compete next weekend at the Augsburg Invitational.
