The Bulldogs brought  home runner-up honors from the West Holt Invite on a cold and windy day last Saturday.

With winds gusting 25-30 miles per hour and temperatures in the mid 30s, tournament officials made the call to play just nine holes on the links of the Atkinson-Stuart Country Club.

The host Huskies took the championship, led by Austin Wenner, who carded a 42 for medalist honors. Six golfers finished the nine holes with 44 strokes, three carded 45 and five finished with 46 for medals.

The Bulldogs were led by Hammer and Zimmerer, both with 44s, to place fifth and sixth place, respectively. Brockhaus came in ninth with a 45 and Wagner’s 46 put him in 12th place. Pint carded a 56.
