LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The Cardinal Men's Golf team finished-off what they started on Sunday (Mar. 18), using a five stroke lead on day one and completing the 2018 SVSU Spring Invitational with a one-stroke victory at the Kearney Hill Golf Links. 

Saginaw Valley followed up an opening day score of 277 (-11) with a 293 on Sunday (+5), turning in a one stroke victory over Grand Valley State, which shot a four-under score on Sunday. 

Dustin Pumford was the low man for the Cardinals in round two. After his first round 74 (+2), Pumford carded a three-under score of 69 to finish with a two day total of 143 (-1). He tied for ninth place overall.

Matching Pumford's ninth place overall finish were Austin Carter and Mason Motte, who shot 74 and 75, respectively, on Sunday. Carter put together rounds of 69-74 while Motte was 68-75 for their 143 totals.
