Men's golf falls to South Dakota to kick off exhibition season
Northern Colorado schedule
VICTOR, Idaho – The Northern Colorado men's golf team kicked off its fall exhibition season, Saturday, with a dual match against South Dakota State at the Headwaters Club at Teton Springs Resort.
The Bears finished the round with a combined score of 297 (+9), while the Jackrabbits finished with a 284 (-4).
"The results are a little disappointing," Northern Colorado coach Chuck Scheinost said. "But at the same time, I thought we got some nerves out. The match served its purpose in that it got us out on the course a day before the tournament started and hopefully got our young guys some experience."
Ben Krueger led the way for Northern Colorado, as he finished with a 2-under par 70, the third best score of the dual.
"I thought Ben (Krueger) played a solid round for us," Scheinost said. "It was also good to see some of our freshmen near the top for us."
While participating individually, sophomore Jake Hutton put together the best round of any Bear, as he shot a 3-under par 69.
The Bears continue their stay in Idaho on Monday, Sept. 5, when they compete in the Battle in the Tetons.
