The Foresters began their spring season with a third place finish at the Campbellsville University Spring Invitational. After shooting a 326 in the opening round, putting them in fifth place, HU came back with a 313 in the second round to move up two spots.
Ryan Bonner finished in the 70s in both rounds to lead the squad. He shot a 76 on the opening day and followed that up with a 77 on day two. His 153 was the sixth best score in the tournament, earning him a spot on the All-Tournament Team. Following Bonner was Justin Imel with a 158 (82, 76), Spencer Batt with a 165 (85, 80) and Patrick Davis (83, 84) and Dan Schroeder (87, 80) both with 167.

“I’m really proud of our guys and how they battled on a very long course (7200 yards)," said Coach Green. "Many of the other teams have been playing in golf tournaments for the past few weeks. This was our first spring tournament and you could tell we were trying to shake off a little rust from the winter. It was nice to see us improve our team score by 13 strokes the second day.”

The men move over the .500 mark with their third place finish to 35-33-3 for the year.
