YANKTON -- The Dakota Wesleyan University men's golf team secured first-place in the Mount Marty Invitational with a come from behind win on day two at the Fox Run/Hillcrest Golf Course. Mitchell's Cade Carpenter shot a 64 and broke the men's single-round golf record to lead DWU to the comeback win. Carpenter shot a 79 on day one, giving him a total score of 1-under-par 143.

Carpenter had eight birdies on day two to break the 18-hole individual score by one stroke. The record was previously held for 24 years by Ryan Huber, who set the record back in 1996 as he shot a 65 at the Sandy Hollow Golf Course in Sioux Center, Iowa.

That was not the only record broken as the DWU men's golf team shot 276 on day two, breaking the 18-hole team record by one stroke. That record was set in 2016 at the Wild Horse Golf Course in Gothenburg, Nebraska of 277 strokes.

The DWU men's team competes in the Blue River Classic Sept. 8-9 at Highlands/Woodland Hills Golf Course.
