Gniewek earned his second first-place finish of the season this past weekend at the weather-shortened Fossum Invitational, leading the Spartans to a 33-stroke victory on the team side. The sophomore fired off a 45-hole score of 177 to oust teammate Jack Newman by one stroke. Gniewek became the 11th MSU medalist at the event as he led the field with 14 birdies.
