Meet specifics: The Spartans are part of the field at the Saginaw Valley State Spring Invitational … Tee times begin at 12 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. Sunday at Boone Links Golf Course in Florence, Ky.

Spartan Shorts: Coach Tara Boone's squad pieced together a pair of top 10 team finishes during their fall season with a high-water mark of fifth at Ohio Wesleyan. Along individual lines, the trio of seniors Quinton Flora (Huntington, Ind.) and Michael Rutledge (Granger, Ind.) and freshman Spencer Jackson (Greenwood, Ind.) were each in the low round role for the Black and Gold in September and October. Flora and Jackson's top marks came at the University of Illinois-Springfield Island Getaway, as Jackson ended in a tie for 16th, and Flora was 18th, while Rutledge turned in a top 25 at Ohio Wesleyan.

Looking Ahead: MU breaks from competition, following their appearance at Boone Links, until Thursday and Friday, April 2 and 3, when they are part of the field for the University of St. Francis of Fort Wayne's Spring Invitational.
