WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. – After a rain soaked Trappers Turn golf course in central Wisconsin pushed back much of round 1, the men’s golf team came back on Tuesday to earn a top-five finish at the Midwest Region Classic.

Simpson’s second to last tournament of the fall included a 28-team field from Division III schools all across the Midwest, including schools from the CCIW, NACC, Midwest Conference, and IIAC among others.

Once again, Junior Trent Lindenman played stellar golf, finishing tied for 5th out of 140 players after shooting a 140 (+5).

Central College was the only other IIAC team to finish in the top ten as they took home a first place finish with a team score of 584 (+8). Simpson was 34 shots behind the pace at 42, behind Carthage College in second and Milikin College in third, both of which represent the CCIW.

Andy Hutchins and Nathan Molstead also put in good finishes for the Storm, both finishing tied for 25th at 155 (+11).

Rounding out the five-man crew for Simpson were Mitch Tomlonovic at tied for 52nd (+16) and Jimmy Siebert at tied for 60th at 18 over par.

This is Simpson’s fourth top-five finish on the year, and their fifth top-ten showing of the season in as many invites. Men’s golf will play their sixth and final invitational of the year as they participate in the William Penn Invitational in Oskaloosa. Tee-times are still to be announced for invite taking place Oct. 10 – 11th.
