JORDAN, Minn. – Despite its best showing at the MIAC Championships in at least 31 years, the Carleton College men’s golf team wrapped up the final round of play at the conference tournament in the same place that it began the day: in ninth place.

Thanks to 14 birdies on the day, the Knights posted a team score of 302 on day three. That is the Knights’ lowest 18-hole score at the conference championships since at least 1986. However, it was not enough to move them up the leaderboard on a day that saw the eight teams in front of them shot as well or better.

Carleton finished the 54-hole tournament at the Ridges at Sand Creek with a team total of 941, the program’s lowest sum at the MIAC Championships since the 2014.

Carleton was led in the final round by senior Evan Anderson (Stillwater, Minn./Stillwater), who finished the day at even-par 72. He tallied four birdies and 12 pars on Monday, and his 72 was tied for fifth best in the field on the final day of play.

Following Anderson on Monday was senior Perry Strong (Cincinnati, Ohio/Loveland), who carded a 74 and paced the Knights for the weekend with a 12-over-par 228 for the tournament. That placed Strong in a tie for 16th place. Anderson finished with a three-day score of 235.

Junior Avery Tribus (Madison, Wis./Edgewood) tallied a 76 in the final round, his lowest score of the tournament. He finished in a tie for 37th at 238 shots over the weekend. David Perl (Jr./ Glencoe, Ill./ New Trier) was the final score for the Knights in round three with an 80. He finished two shots back of Tribus. Aaron Sparby (Jr./Thief River Falls, Minn./Lincoln) rounded out the Carleton roster for the weekend. He turned in his best performance of the championships on Monday, carding an 81 to give him a three-day total of 253.

This was the final tournament on Carleton’s schedule for the fall season. The Knights hope to bring the momentum of their strong fall season finish into their spring session when they tee it up again in late March.
