BATH, Mich. - The Huntington men’s golf team played 36 holes on Monday at the Spring Arbor University Fall Classic to finish tied for 9th out of 14 teams by posting a 43-over-par 619 at Eagle Eye Golf Club in Bath, Mich.

Coach Sholund’s crew fired an impressive 305 in their first round to find themselves in a tie for 6th before carding a 314 over the last 18 holes to slip a few spots by day’s end.

Cale Carr paced the Foresters by turning in a 148 (72, 76) for a share of 11th place out of 75 golfers. Andrew Weisheit was a picture of consistency, firing a 75 both rounds, to finish tied for 15th with a 150.

Zak Cummings posted a 158 (77, 81) for 38th place while Luis Estaban finished with a 163 (81, 82) to round out HU’s scoring. Other scores for HU included Chandler Rang’s 184 (92, 92).

Overall, Sholund was pleased with his team’s performance. “We were really close today to everyone clicking at the same time. Our practices are getting better and I think they are more focused on the things they should be.

“We put ourselves in a position to be sub-300 and if we keep putting ourselves in that position, we will learn to finish better.”

The Foresters are back in action on September 29-30 to play in the University of Saint Francis Fall Invitational.

Taylor took home the title by firing a 565 followed by Saint Francis (597), Marian (601), IU East (603), Mount Vernon (606), Madonna (608), Spring Arbor (612), Grace (616), HU (619), IU Kokomo (629), Cleary (645), Cornerstone (652), Madonna B (670) and Spring Arbor B (681).
