|Wright State Completes Successful Spring Break Trip|
- Over the past week, Wright State's successful season continues to improve as they go 2-for-2 on wins during their spring break. They began their break in Orlando, where they won the Orlando Invitational by 21 strokes and fired a team score of 5-under-par. Tyler Goecke, from Xenia, collected medalist honors as he carded a 54-hole score of 6-under-par, winning by 5 strokes. Bryce Haney, Mikkel Mathiesen, Cole Corder, and Davis Root all also finished in the top 15.
Following the win in Orlando, the team traveled to St. Simmons Island, GA where they competed in the Sea Palms Invitational in a field of 18 teams. After the conclusion of the 36 holes, the Raiders trailed by 8 strokes to the Dayton Flyers. Led again by Junior Tyler Goecke, the Raiders rallied to shoot a tournament-low round of 10-under-par 274 in the final round. It wasn't until the final 9 holes of the tournament where the Raiders were able to gain back the ground. As a team, the Raiders carded 17 birdies and 1 eagle in the final 9 holes, allowing them to quickly climb their way back up the leaderboard. Individually, Tyler Goecke finished tied for 3rd, Cole Corder finished in 8th place, Bryce Haney tied for 13th, Mikkel Mathiesen tied for 24th, and Davis Root tied for 47th.
This gives Wright State their 5th and 6th win of this school year, making them now 6-for-8 on tournament wins in the 2021/2022 season. They now have 3 weeks off before they compete again on March 27th and 28th at the Seahawk Invitational in Wilmington, NC.
