    “”It was cold and windy, but not too bad on the Monday,”” said Triton head coach Mike Wydra. “”On Tuesday, the wind picked up and they moved the pin positions around to produce the highest scores possible, and it worked.””

    Freshman Robbie Kramer followed up Scheer with a tie for 45th place with a score of 236, 20 over par. Kramer shot rounds of 76, 77 and 83.

    “”Both Alan and Robbie had two eagles on the day. It’s rare for a team to have more than one, and we had five,”” Wydra said.

    Sophomore Joe Dolby came in third for the Tritons, shooting a total score of 237 for the tournament with rounds of 78, 77 and 82, putting him at 21 over par and giving him a 48th-place finish.

    “”We’re going to hold a qualifying match to see which golfers will go to the championship, and if we do well as a team there, there is a good chance we will advance to the regionals,”” Wydra said.
