The men’s golf team placed 10th at the Wolf Pack Classic.
The Cougars shot a three-round total of 909 (+45), 28 shots behind the winner, San Jose State.
Despite a dissappointing start, the Cougars played well in the final round, shooting 293 (+5). The score was the third best round of the day, and the fourth best round from any school in the tournament.
Sophomore Jarrett Foote led the Cougars by finishing in a tie for 10th, six shots behind the tournament winner Jay Myers of San Jose State. He shot his best round in the final round at one under par (71).
Junior Hank Frame and senior Branden Dalton both shot 230 for the tournament (+14), tying for 44th place. Senior Trent Sanders and freshman Michael Anderson, competing as an individual, both shot 231 (+15), which put them in a tie for 49th and sophomore Kent Hagen rounded out the Cougar scores, finishing in a tie for 74th, shooting 240 (+24).
“We learned a lot,” Head Coach Garrett Clegg said in a WSU press release. “You learn more from your challenges and struggles than you do from your successes. Hopefully we came out of this tournament a better team.”
The Cougars will be off next week, but will be back on the course on Oct. 17 and 18, travelling to Fairfax, Calif., for the Alister MacKenzie Invitational.
