The Buena Vista men's golf team carried its momentum from last week into the opening round of the Viking Invite, hosted by Bethany Lutheran College. The Beavers have a pair of individuals in the top-10 and sit fourth out of nine teams overall.
Freshman Anthony Gallagher posted the low round of 76 to help lead the way and will enter Saturday's final round tied for fifth. Fellow freshman Ryan Ruzek was right behind with a 77 that has him tied for seventh. Freshman Andrew Underbrink carded an 84 and is the third Beaver in the top 20.
It marks the third straight round that the Beavers have posted a score of 325 or bette. The team is four shots clear of the host Vikings who are in fifth and will enter Saturday's final round just four strokes behind UW-Superior. The University of Northwestern-St. Paul is the clubhouse leader after a 296.
