NWC CHAMPIONSHIPS:

WOODBURN, Ore. –Bringing their first year under new head coach Branden Thompson to a close, the George Fox University Bruins finished ninth in the Northwest Conference Men’s Golf Championship Tournament which came to a conclusion on a rain-soaked Sunday here at the Oregon Golf Association Golf Course.

 

The Bruins shot a two-day score of 337-346=683 on the par 72, 6,501-yard course.  Pacific Lutheran University won the tournament with a 297-305=602 and wrapped up the NWC overall championship, giving the Lutes the conference’s automatic bid to the NCAA Division III National Tournament on May 13-16 at the Grandover Resort Golf Course in Greensboro, N.C. 

 

There was a tie for second in the tournament between the University of Puget Sound (314-298=612), which had Sunday’s low round, and Whitworth University (313-299=612).  Willamette University (304-314=618) slipped from second to fourth, followed by Linfield College at 315-309=624, Lewis & Clark College at 327-314=641, Whitman College at 327-323=650, Pacific University at 322-334=656, and George Fox.

 

The Bruins’ best score Sunday was turned in by Dylan Harris, who carded a consistent 83-83=166 to tie for 33rd on the leader board.  Their best overall score came from Pax Magaway, who was 32nd with a 78-87=165.  Also counting for the Bruins on Sunday were Tyler Smith (93-86=179, 42nd) and Kyle Kirwan (90-90=180, 43rd).  Rounding out the Bruins’ lineup was Nick Karich, who was 41st with an 86-91=177.

 

In a tight individual race, Jesse Salzwedel of Whitworth earned medalist honors with a two-over-par 73-73=146, edging Seth Nickerson of Pacific Lutheran, who had a 74-73=147.  Two shots out of first were day one leader Dustin Hegge of PLU (71-77=148), Ryan Kukula of Willamette (72-76=148), and Ricky Howard of Puget Sound (77-71=148), who had Sunday’s best individual round.

 

The NWC Championship Tournament counts as half of the score toward the overall team championship, with the NWC Fall and Spring Classic each counting as one quarter of the total score.  Pacific Lutheran garnered 29 points for the three events, followed by Whitworth (26), Willamette (25), Puget Sound (23.5), Linfield (16.5), Lewis & Clark (9), Whitman (8), Pacific (6), and George Fox (0).

 

Complete results of the NWC Championship Tournament are available on the George Fox men’s golf website at http://athletics.georgefox.edu/sports/mgolf/2013-14/files/0427M.htm.
