Bemidji State in second after 18 holes at SCSU Husky Classic
ST. CLOUD, Minn. (St. Cloud CC)-- Led by a trio of golfers at three-over-par (75), the Bemidji State University golf team completed the first day of the St. Cloud State University (SCSU) Husky Classic Sunday in second place.  

The teams played the first 18 holes of the 36-hole tournament at the 6,631-yard, par 72 St. Cloud Country Club.

Carding a team score of 303 (+15), the Beavers were 15 strokes off the pace set by hosting St. Cloud State, which finished day 1 with an even 288.

Matt Haugstad (Sr., East Grand Forks, Minn.), Casey Hill (Jr., Virginia, Minn.) and Danny Menton (Sr., Hutchinson, Minn.) turned in matching scores of 75 on day one and are tied with seven others for ninth place individually.  John Hafdal (Fr., Prior Lake, Minn.) accounted for BSU’s fourth score after recording a six-over-par 78 to sit in a tie for 28th place.

St. Cloud State’s Billy Barnhart, Jordan Dicky and Levi Smith of University of Sioux Falls find themselves atop the leaderboard after firing a one-under-par 71s.  They hold a one-stroke advantage over the field for individual medallist honors.

BSU also has another team competing in the event.  Led by freshman Nathan Brown (Binbrook, Ontario), the team completed 18 holes with a total score of 320 (+32) to hold down 12th place along with SCSU’s second team.
