Madera, CA (April 13) - The Loyola Marymount University men's golf team concluded an impressive showing at the 2004 West Coast Conference Championships with a fifth place finish, overcoming cold and windy conditions at the Riverbend Golf Club on Tuesday afternoon.
After record-breaking scores in the first day of action on Monday, which included 11 rounds in the 60s, windy conditions made the course much tougher. No player in the 40-man field shot under par on day two as the Lions posted a final round of 312 to finish one stroke behind San Diego for fourth. The Toreros trailed the Lions by one stroke after two rounds and finished the third round with a 310.
Leading the way for the Lions was sophomore Chaz Inouye, who posted his second consecutive top-10 finish with a final score of 219 to finish eighth overall. The score of three-over par was highlighted by a 68 in round two as he finishes the tournament with a 76 in round three.
In team play each team qualifies five golfers with the four lowest counting towards the team total each round. For the first time in program history the Lions had the four golfers counting toward the team score finish in the top-20. Seniors Joe Legacy and Gavin Witzer closed their four-year careers at LMU tied with one another at 15th.
Both senior were tied entering round three and finished with a score of 80 on Tuesday for a final score of 224. Freshman Brendan von Doehren
