GRCC Sophomore Zach Bialik led both the team and the competition with a +1. Sophomore teammate Kurt Sprague came in second, shooting a +2.
The Raiders are scheduled to tee off at the Lawerence Tech Invite at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 22. The 36-hole tournament will take place at Plum Hollow Country Club in Southfield, Michigan.
“We always go in expecting to win,” said VandenBeldt concerning the upcoming invite. “We just want to go in and get better.”
