EDINA, Minn. -- Competing against one of the strongest fields of the year, the Carleton College men’s golf team finished in a tie for 14th out of 17 teams at the Twin Cities Classic. The three-day event is held at three different courses.

No. 19-ranked Saint John’s won the tournament with a score of 902. University of Manitoba (915) finished second, followed by UW-Eau Claire and Augsburg University (918) in a tie for third place (918). No. 10-ranked University of St. Thomas (921) rounded out the top five.

With high winds each day, the Knights improved on their opening round 329 posted at the Elk River Country Club on Saturday with a 317 at The Links at Northfok on Sunday and a 320 at Edina Country Club on Monday.

Over the 54-hole tournament, the Knights were led by senior Sam Reategui (Highland Park, Ill./North Shore), who turned in scores of 80, 83, and 79 and saw his final round capped off with a long eagle on the par-5, No. 8 hole at Edina Country Club. Senior Avery Tribus (Madison, Wis./ Edgewood) bounced back from a first-round score of 90 to finish the tournament with rounds of 76 and 77. His 27-over par total was one shot behind Reategui.

Aaron Sparby (Sr./Thief River Falls, Minn./Lincoln) bettered his opening-round 82 by seven shots on the second day to fire a strong 75, but he was unable to continue his strong play on the third day and carded an 88.

“After struggling on day one, we made a respectable comeback to finish out the tournament,” said senior David Perl (Glencoe, Ill/New Trier). “On Monday, difficult green complexes and our overall lack of course knowledge hampered our ability to post an even better score.”

Perl (+36, 82-83-83=248) was the Knights’ fourth scorer each day. Peter Gullickson (So./Minneapolis, Minn./Blake School) saw his opening-round 85 and final-round 81 count towards Carleton’s team score.

The Knights look to sharpen their games before this weekend’s Saint John’s Fall Invitational. That will be the team’s last tournament before playing in the MIAC Championships on Oct. 6-8 at Ridges at Sand Creek in Jordan, Minn.
