JAMESTOWN, N.D. —The M State men’s golf team got a little tune-up before the Div. III National Tournament in June as the Spartans took fourth place in a meet hosted by the University of Jamestown.

“We were very happy to have the opportunity to play against some great competition,” Spartans’ coach Jason Retzlaff said. “We were rusty and our scores were what I expected as our players haven’t been able to practice much at all. But that is to be expected after the Winter layoff. The most important thing was for us to get some reps and competition in before the national tournament in June. Last year’s weather didn’t allow us the chance so we were thrilled to get out and play the last few days.”

The Spartans finished with a two-day team total of 635, 33 strokes off Rocky Mountain College, the meet’s winner.

Brandon Sletmoen placed sixth individually at the meet with a 153 total. Medalist honors went to Daniel Thompsett of Rocky Mountain College with a 144.

Jared Cowden (157), Brady Roberson (160), Rob Goff (165) and Matt Wagner (169) rounded out the scoring for the Spartans.

M State will compete in Chautauqua, N.Y. June 3-6 for the Div. III National Championship.
