FORT WAYNE, Ind. - The Huntington golf team registered a third place finish with a score of 598 in its first spring outing at the University of Saint Francis Invitational.

Tied with Hope College for second with 293 after day one, the Foresters shot a 305 on Saturday to finish third out of 11 teams.

Leading the pack for HU was Rylan Porter who finished third overall with a one-over 145 (70, 75). Ryan Boester (77, 75) and Devin Dale (74, 78) tied for 17th, each carding an eight-over 152. Josh Teulker turned in a 153 (76, 77) good for 22nd while Derek Zurcher rounded out Huntington’s scoring with a 40th place finish score of 161 (73, 88).
