Warriors golf takes eighth place at invitational
Placeholder Image

The Cal State Stanislaus men's golf team had another 300-plus day as the Warriors ended up eighth at the InterWest Wildcat Classic, hosted by Chico State at the Butte Creek Country Club in Chico.

Trevor Blair and Teddy Schrier each shot a 2-over 74 on Tuesday with Blair finishing as the top Warrior with a 225 tournament total. His scorecard was good for a 14th place finish. Schrier was one stroke behind Blair at 226.

Three Vikings finished in the top 10 to help Western Washington run away with the tournament win. The Vikings won by 10 strokes, 880 to 890, over host Chico State. WWU's Dylan Goodwin had the day's low of 67 to lead the Vikings.
Sonoma State finished third at 897, one shot ahead of Grand Canyon. Cal State Monterey Bay was tied for fifth with Saint Martin's. Holy Names, in seventh, also finished ahead of Stanislaus.

Josh Jackson of Cal State Monterey Bay, Matt Epstein of Saint Martin's and Kenny Pigman of Cal State San Bernardino tied for medalist honors at 2-under par for the tournament, and Jackson was awarded first using USGA tiebreaker procedures. Pigman finished third by virtue of the trio's back nine scores, and Jackson's 2-under par effort on the final six holes gave him the victory over Epstein, who was 1-under during the same stretch.
Rounding out the scoring for Cal State Stanislaus were Andre Navarro (228), Brandon Taylor (233) and J.T. Cockerill (235).

The next tournament on the Stanislaus schedule is on Nov. 1-2, when the Warriors compete at the Dennis Rose Intercollegiate at Mauna Lani North on the island of Hawaii, hosted by Hawaii Hilo.
