Sept. 13, 2011
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Led by lone senior Matt Haase, a young Marquette University men's golf team opened the 2011-12 season with a 10th place finish at the Wolverine Intercollegiate.
Haase shot a 2-over-par 73 in Tuesday's third and final round at U-M Golf Course. Freshman Will Joiner, playing unattached as an individual, matches Haase's 73 to pace the Golden Eagles down the stretch.
Joiner was one of five MU players making the trip to Ann Arbor, three of which made their collegiate debut Monday.
While Haase (74-74-73=221) placed tied for 31st overall, sophomore Michael Motz was right behind his teammate on the leaderboard at 223 for the tournament, highlighted by a second-round 70.
Joiner paced all MU freshmen at 225 (76-76-73) in his first collegiate event, tied for third overall among the six Golden Eagles.
Marquette returns to action Sept. 26-27 at the Cardinal Collegiate, hosted by the University of Louisville, at the Cardinal Club in Simpsonville, Ky.
