IOWA CITY, Iowa --- The Xavier University men’s golf team suffered a tough first day at the Golfweek Conference Challenge at the Spirit Hollow Golf Course in Iowa City, Iowa. The Musketeers are 15th out 15 teams after the first round following a 23-over-par 311 today. Round two is Monday and the third and final round is set for Tuesday.

Xavier’s top efforts for the first round were turned in by senior Aaron Siekmann and sophomore Jesse Heinly, who both posted scores of 77. Sophomore Korey Ward, who won Atlantic 10 Golfer of the Week honors after winning the Marshall Invitational this past week, is not among the XU players that made this trip.
