JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Cleveland State men's and women's golf teams headed south on Monday to open their spring schedules at the Butler North/South Invitational. The men are in fourth out of 10 teams at the conclusion of 18 holes, while the women stand 13th out of 18 squads. The tournament is being held at the Jacksonville Beach Golf Club.
"Both teams struggled down the stretch, but overall I'm pleased with how we played today," CSU head coach Brian Varsey said. "We've still got some rust to shake off, but we're in a position to move up tomorrow."
