Koby Kuenzel placed 13th with a final score of 147. Brandon Bervig, in his first BSU tournament, tied for 14th with a 148.

Last year at this time, Bemidji State traveled to Oklahoma to compete in the NSU Invite. BSU placed 12th out of 18 in a loaded regional field. Returners Schoepp, Lick and Usher all competed in that tournament. Schoepp posted a three-round total of 225, Lick at 228 and Usher at 230.
Following the trip to Wisconsin, Bemidji State will still have two more tournaments. They will travel to Lake City, Minn., to compete in the Watkins Invitational (Sept. 25-26) and then when October rolls around out to Missouri for the Holiday Inn Express MWSU Invite.
