Like every other sport on campus, the men's and women's golf teams have had a rough go of getting the weather to cooperate in 2013. But unlike every sport on campus, it makes that much more of a difference when success is based on getting practice time outside in the elements.
The men's golf team had a busy weekend competing at the Hotels at Grand Prairie Invitational Friday and Saturday in Peoria, Ill., then returning to Nebraska for the Midland Invite in Fremont on Monday. Though it might have been a busy travel schedule, the Mavs didn't show it on the course.
The UNO men's golf team took fifth place at the Beu/Mussatto Invitational hosted by Western Illinois Tuesday afternoon. The Mavs finished with a team score of 909 after posting 308 in round three.
In 2012, the women's golf team had only done as well as a ninth place finish at the IPFW Spring Classic on April 2. For most of the season, UNO finished tournaments outside the top 10.
