Ashland University's men's golf team has plenty to build upon going into the 2020 spring championship season, as the Eagles finished the 2019 fall non-championship campaign with a win at Davenport's Panther Invitational on Sunday (Oct. 20).
Pacing the entire 11-team field, Ashland's team score of 273-288—561 was three shots better than Grand Valley State (283-281—564), and nine strokes lower than Wayne State (280-290—570).
"I'm really proud of these young men, bouncing back from a tough fall and closing the season with a win," said Ashland head coach Dennis North. "It's great to put five scores together two days in a row."
Four Eagles concluded the final fall tournament in the top eight individually, led by junior Ben Jones and freshman Andrew Kolar, who each placed in a tie for third. Jones carded 67-72—139 for his fourth top-10 placement in five fall events, while Kolar was 66-73—139 for the best finish of his young collegiate career.
