Head Coach Jason Retzlaff had this to say about the Spartans performace. "As a team it was an up and down day as we put up some big numbers early, but then settled in much better as the round progressed. Wyatt Blomseth was outstanding today and was rewarded with medalist honors. His putting was tremendous on some very fast and difficult greens. John Vall finished strong as well. He had two eagles in his round which is something that you rarely see happen. We hope to play a more consistent 18 holes as a team tomorrow and Sunday at the St John's Invite. It will be the largest field our program has ever competed in with 120 players and a great challenge for our players."

The Spartans men will travel to compete in the two-day, 36-hole St. John's Invite Saturday. Round 1 is Saturday (12:30 p.m.) at Greystone GC in Sauk Centre. Round 2 is Sunday (9 a.m.) at BlackBerry Ridge golf course in Sartell.
