FAIRMONT – The Marshall boys golf team tied for third at the Fairmont Invite on Saturday, shooting a team score of 346. St. Peter took first with a score of 329, followed by New Ulm in second (332) and Fairmont in a tie for third with the Tigers.
Mason Plante led the way for Marshall with a 79 while Spencer Ehlers shot 80, Ethan VanHauwaert had 88 and Dominik Caspers shot 99. Evan Franson shot 112 to round out their scores.
“Mason and Spencer didn’t score as well as they had hoped. Mason wasn’t hitting greens in regulation and had to rely on chipping way too much. Spencer had a couple of errant shots and an inconsistent short game that led to too many missed opportunities,” Marshall coach Kari Ehlers said. “One highlight was the play of Ethan VanHauwaert. He had a nice front nine and stayed away from the big numbers.”
Marshall will compete next on Tuesday against Redwood Valley in Marshall to wrap up conference play at 4:30 p.m.
