MOUNT VERNON, Ohio – The HU men’s golf team played 36 holes on Saturday at the Mount Vernon Spring Cougar Classic where they finished sixth out of seven teams. The Foresters, playing at Chapel Hill Golf Course, shot a 326 in the first round and a 332 in round two to finish with a 658.

Lance Hoch (77, 80) and Zach Borntreger (80, 77) each shot a 157 to finish tied for 30th out of 48 golfers to pace the Foresters. Logan DeMaa carded a 163 (78, 85) for 40th place while Alex Creekmur rounded out his team’s scoring by shooting a 181 (91, 90).

Coach Rick Sholund likes the direction his team is heading. “The guys were much improved this week with limiting mistakes and keeping big numbers off the card.

“We did not make a lot of birdies but they will come. We are a young team and I am encouraged with how they are maturing and beginning to think their way around the course.”

Northwestern Ohio won the invitational by shooting a 574 followed by Mount Vernon A (587), Madonna (587), Spring Arbor (606), Indiana Wesleyan (610), HU (658) and Mount Vernon B (661).   Huntington is back at it on Tuesday to compete in the Knight Invite hosted by Calvin College.
