By The Globe Gazette staff

AMES — NIACC carded a 320 Friday to take third place in the Region XI preview meet at Veenker Memorial Golf Course. Kirkwood won with a 300 and Iowa Lakes shot 319.

"This was a good test for the men's team today to see how we stack up again the other conference teams and for the most part we hung in there," NIACC coach Chris Frenz said. "We know we have to get better but we also know we're not too far away, we just need to get everyone clicking at the same time."

Joe Nordquist led the Trojans with a 76 and Anthony Emanuel also recorded a sub-80 round with a 78.

Zach Nicholson, Josh Schaefer and Devin Koob all carded 83s for NIACC.

NIACC's 'B' team shot 335, led by Mitchell Scholl's 80.

NIACC hosts an invitational Monday at the Mason City Country Club.
