LAKE GENEVA, Wisconsin – Freshman Jacob Mueller put together a pair of rounds in the 70s as the team's high finisher, with the MSOE golf team taking 10th out of 14 teams at the MSOE Invitational Sunday and Monday at Grand Geneva Resort.
The Raiders finished at +79 (651) over the two-day tournament. A 'B' entry of golfers tied with North Park for 11th place at +86 (658), led by Mueller.
Junior Sullivan Schrandt actually had day two low score, carding a +3 (75) to finish at +15 (158) and tie for 28th place.
It was Mueller, however, that paced the squad at the tournament. After a team-best 79 on the Highlands Course Sunday, he shot a 77 Monday on the Brute to finish at +13 (156) and tie for 20th place.
MSOE found the Brute easier to tame across the board with four rounds in the 70s compared to just one Sunday.
Freshmen Nick Redmon and Bryce Lindsley, senior Andrew Ramirez, and sophomore Michael Barbeau rounded out the team's top entry. Redmon tied for 40th at +18 (161) after a 79 Monday. Lindsley shot +24 (167) to tie for 50th and Ramirez tied for 59th at +27 (170). Barbeau finished 62nd and had a score of +28 (171).
The 'B' team had the edge on the Brute by one stroke Monday. Senior Reid Rumack carded a 78 Monday and tied with freshman Brett O'Shaughnessy for 53rd overall at +25 (168). Freshman Bryan Elden was just two strokes back, tied for 59th place with a +27 (170). Sophomore Alex Olson rounded out the team in 67th place at +39 (182).
Freshman Jordan Wachowiak competed as an individual and had Monday's second-best score with a 76. He was fifth on the team and tied for 43rd overall with a score of +21 (164).
The MSOE Invitational was the Raiders' final tune-up before the fall portion of the NACC Championships, which get underway Monday. The league plays two rounds in the fall and the final two rounds after the spring season.
