KERRVILLE, Texas - Jake Groselak's (Lemont HS, Lemont, Ill.) round of 83 led Augustana on Tuesday, February 26 as the Vikings opened the spring portion of their schedule by finishing ninth at the Schreiner Spring Shootout.

Sophomore Grant Murphy (Dunlap HS, Peoria, Ill.) shot an 86 to tie for 41st. Rounding out the Viking contingent were sophomores Max Channon (Wheaton Warrenville South HS, Wheaton, Ill.) and Josh Kukla (Zion Benton HS, Winthrop Harbor, Ill.). Channon finished 46th with a round of 90, while Kukla's round of 92 tied him for 47th.
