Spartans Assistant Coach JEFF HAUKOS quote:
"The Spartan Men's golf team struggled at the beginning of today's Luck Invitational Golf tournament in Luck, WI. It was a windy day on a difficult course with narrow tree lined fairways and many undulations. Freshman, Carter Justesen had a great day finishing as medalist shooting a 1 over par 75. Hunter Moen played exceptionally well on the back nine finishing at 2 over par with a 76. Really proud of how our guys stepped up after a rocky start."
The Spartans will next compete on Sunday in a dual meet against the University of MN Morris as part of the Spartan Invite on Sunday.
