COLUMBIA, Ky. - A youthful Forester men’s golf team shot a 303 on day one of the Blue Raider Kickoff Classic at The Pines at Lindsey Wilson College (KY) and bounced back with a 299 on Saturday to finish with a 34-over-par 602 good for 12th out of 15 teams.

It was the first outing for HU under first year head Rick Sholund who was pleased with his team’s play. “I am very encouraged with the start to our season. We are young and inexperienced as a team.

“The first nine holes in the first round were tough for them but they did a great job competing from then on. Overall if we continue to work with focus, we will continue to improve.”

Freshman Cale Carr fired a one-over-par 143 (73, 70) for the two-day invitational in his first collegiate outing to finish tied for 14th overall out of 81 golfers. Lance Hoch turned in a 146 (74, 72) while Logan DeMaa posted a 156 (79, 77). Finishing two strokes behind DeMaa was Logan Choka with a 158 (77, 81). Kaleb Harness rounded out the scoring by shooting a 163 (83, 80).

Dalton State claimed the Blue Raider Classic with a 588 followed by Lindsey Wilson “A” (564), Union (570), Mount Vernon (573), Millsaps (575), Lindsey Wilson “B” (575), Indiana Wesleyan (578), Campbellsville (580), Bryan “A” (587), Brescia (593), West Virginia Tech (601), HU (602), Bryan “B” (610), Lindsey Wilson “C” (613) and Berea (621).
