The University of Wisconsin–Stout Blue Devils got their spring schedule underway with a sixth-place finish at the Loras College Invitational on April 6 and 7 in Peosta, Iowa.
Brad Wohlers, a senior from Mahtomedi, Minn., and Chris Zachman, a junior from Wauwatosa, Wis., paced the Blue Devils with overall scores of 152, tying for 17th place individually. Wohlers shot a 76 each day of the tournament while Zachman followed up his first day of 75 with a 77 on day two.
With a late influx of winter weather, the tentatively planned UW–Stout Invitational scheduled for April 17 didn’t look as if it would happen this year. However, Mother Nature came through, and the Blue Devils were able to host the invite, competing against University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire and the University of St. Thomas.
Junior Blake Lentner of Ramsey, Minn. finished fifth with a four-over par 75 as the Blue Devils ended up in third, finishing two strokes behind UW–Eau Claire and 10 strokes behind St. Thomas.
Scott Welland, a freshman from Cadott, Wis., tied for seventh with a 76 while fellow freshman Anthony Johnson from Stillwater, Minn. shot a 78 to tie for 12th place.
