Spartans Coach Jason Retzlaff Quote:
"I was extremely pleased with the way our entire team performed and especially with the way our players finished their rounds. It's a great lesson the importance of grinding on every shot as one shot can make the difference like it did for our team today. It was great to see our depth shine through with both teams under 310 today."
 
"Hunter Moen and Blake Bloedorn each birdied 2 of their last 3 holes to finish strong.  Kyle Boe, Nick Kress, and Josh Taylor also had their best rounds of the season to date."
 
M State will compete next at their home Spartan Invitational on Sunday and Monday.
