Senior Devon Kastler has been one of the top golfers for the Lopers for the past three years. As he enters the second half of his last season, this golfer and the team have some unfinished business.

Kastler, a business administration major from Ord, had an outstanding fall season as he led the Lopers with a 74.3 stroke average. He started the year by winning the first tournament, the Augustana Invitational, and never looked back. Kastler never finished worse than 12th overall in the fall placing first, third, 12th, seventh and second in the first five tournaments of the season.

The whole team has continued to improve. The team started the year out ranked over 100th in the nation, now they enter the spring ranked 54th, according to golfstat.com.

They placed second in three other tournaments and then won the Nebraska Intercollegiate to close out the fall. Their lowest finish as a team was seventh.

With high expectations in the spring for himself and the team, Kastler looks to keep on rolling and get better everyday. “I’m going to continue to work hard and do the best I can. My personal goal is to finish in the top five in the RMAC, while my ultimate goal would be the player of the year,” Kastler said.

Kastler is currently ranked third overall in scoring average in the RMAC.

The team has high hopes in reaching the Super Regionals after falling just short last season. Kastler believes the Lopers have a great team this year and have what it takes to get the job done. “We are a much more improved team this season,” Kastler said. “Our main focus now is to win the RMAC and make Super Regionals in California. I believe if we can out it all together we can fulfill our potential.”

The Lopers are currently ranked seventh in the RMAC. They tee off the spring season two weeks from now on the 19th at the Wolf Pack Invitational in Pueblo, Colo.

As far as what to get out of his last semester of his college sports career, Kastler said he just wants to do the best that he can and cherish the moments while they last because just like that they’ll be gone.
