WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The Forester men’s golf team brought home an eighth place finish at the Ackerman-Allen Classic hosted by Taylor University on Monday at the Ackerman-Allen Golf Course in West Lafayette. After firing a 302 in their opening round to find themselves in sixth place, the Foresters slipped two spots after a posting a 310 in their final 18 holes to finish with a 36-over-par 612 for the one-day event.

Cale Carr paced Coach Sholund’s crew by turning in a three-over-par 147 (72, 75) for 15th place out of 59 golfers. Luis Estaban came in next for HU by carding a 151 (75, 76). Zak Cummings (78-78—156) and Zach Borntreger (77-81—158) shot within two strokes of each other to finish 43rd and 47th respectively. Rounding out Huntington’s scoring was Chandler Rang who put up an 85 each round to finish with a 170.

“We have been competitive for the last two events,” said Sholund. “We were in a solid position heading into round two today. The last six holes really hurt us in the standings, we were 11 over par in that span. The positive is that we put ourselves in a good position. If we continue to do that, we will get better at closing out rounds.”

Taylor claimed their own title with a 566 followed by Saint Francis (576), Indiana Wesleyan (579), Lawrence Tech (582), Parkland (592), St. Joseph’s (604), Spring Arbor (611), HU (612) and Purdue Northwest (616).

The Foresters now turn their attention to the Crossroads League Tournament slated for April 24-25.
