Battle Creek, Mich. – The Indiana Tech men’s golf team fired a 588, a new 36-hole school record, to finish second at the Cereal City Shootout hosted by Ashford University at the Battle Creek Country Club in Battle Creek, Michigan on Monday.
Tech’s 588 shattered the previous school mark of 594, a record that had stood since 1976 when current Warrior head coach Kelly Mettert was a member of the team.
Ashford won the event shooting a 574 and the University of Northwestern Ohio finished in third place behind Tech with a 600.
Freshman Zach Wetzel led the way with a season-low 36-hole score of 143. Wetzel shot an even-par 72 in the first round and followed it up with a one-under 71 to finish third overall, earning the first top-five finish of his career. Fellow freshman Tyler Willette was close behind in sixth place after shooting a one-over par 145 for the tournament. Willette opened with a season-best 72 and capped off the day with a 73 over the final 18 holes.
Nate Kolmerten also had a career-day, shooting his lowest 36-hole score as a Warrior. He turned in rounds of 76 and 73 for a 149 and finished in ninth place. Brandon Bailey and Jamaal Jones finished in 16th and 20th place respectively. Bailey shot a 151 (77/74) and Jones shot a 160 (83/77).
