BIWABIK — The M State men’s golf team continues to show why they have been on the top of the MCAC for the last few years as the Spartans swept two tournaments in Biwabik Sunday and Monday.

On Sunday, the Spartans dominated the competition winning by 20 strokes to the next competitor shooting a 311.

M State’s Brady Robertson took home medalist honors shooting a three over 72. Teammates Rob Goff (76), Brandon Sletmoen (78) and Austin Pulczynski (78) also were under 80 at the course.

“We played a solid round on a great golf course,” Spartan coach Jason Retzlaff said. “A few too many big numbers kept us from going lower, but overall we did a pretty good job of keeping the ball in play. Brady Robertson played an excellent round of golf with very few mistakes.

The Spartans also had a Kari Larson golf on the women’s side as she shot a 106.

On Monday, M State kept the ball rolling as it eased its way to its second win in two days duplicating its team score from the previous day with a 311.

The Spartans defeated runner-up Central Lakes by 26 strokes, while host Mesabi finished its rounds with a 354.

Goff claimed co-medalist honors for the Spartans finishing the day with a 74 individual score, while teammates Jared Cowden, Robertson and Sletmoen all shot 79s in the win.

“I thought it was another solid performance by our team. This is the fourth year we traveled here and it was the lowest score we have put up,” Retzlaff said.

The Spartans will look to add another trophy to the case as it travels to Lake City to compete at The Jewel Thursday.
