KOHLER - Lakeland College freshman Matt Lewellyn (Oshkosh, Wis.) is tied for the individual lead after the first round of the Northern Athletics Conference Men's Golf Championships, being played at the Whistling Straits Irish Course.
Lewellyn shot a round of two-over par 74, his best round of the fall by six strokes and good enough for a tie for first place with Kenny Rucker of Edgewood College. He also has Lakeland within striking distance of the lead after one round, as the Muskies' score of 320 is good for fourth in the team standings behind leader Edgewood (312) as well as Milwaukee School of Engineering (313) and Marian University (315).
Lewellyn will stay atop the leaderboard for a long time, as the final three rounds of the Championship will be played in the spring. The first two of four rounds were scheduled to be played in the fall, but Sunday's play was rained out and the second round was rescheduled for the spring.
Lakeland has a pair of players in the top 10 as Ryan Newburry (So.-Campbellsport, Wis.) resides in a tie for 10th after the first round after shooting a score of seven-over par 79. Zach Mutsch (Sr.-Howards Grove, Wis.) also stepped up with his best round of the fall, shooting a score of 80 to tie for 14th.
Beau Gundersen (So.-New Berlin, Wis.) shot a round of 87 to tie for 37th after one day. Tyler Kubicek (Jr.-Madison, Wis.) added a round of 89 to tie for 39th.
