Head Coach Jason Retzlaff Quote:

"We struggled a bit felt we could have played better.  Wildflower is a great test of golf and the wind kept all the teams grinding on both days.  This is a great event for us to play in with outstanding competition. We showed flashes of great play that make me very excited about the potential of this team."

 

The Spartans will next compete at an MCAC conference event in Luck, WI on Thursday (11:15 am)
