The men’s team will be heading to Independence for the Gopher Invitational. The team returns after a seventh place (+43) showing last year. Returning senior Sebastian Bendsen had the team’s best finish last year at a tie for 12th place.

The women will try to bounce back from their eighth place (+50) finish last year in Minneapolis at the Minnesota Invitational. Returning senior Taylor Kim and sophomore Wad Phaewchimplee will come back from last year following a tie at 14th. The scheduled days of play for the men are Sept. 13 and 14, while the girls tee off Sept. 14 and 15.
