LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Thanks to a two-round score of three-under par at Red Hill Country Club in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., on Monday, sophomore Boris Stantchev of the LMU men's golf team qualified for the 2010 United States Amateur Championship to be held Aug. 23-29 at Chambers Bay Country Club in Washington. Stantchev is one of many Lions who have had a busy summer on the course.
On July 26, Stantchev posted a two-round score of 141, just one stroke off of leader Ryan Indovina to become another Lion to qualify for the U.S. Amateur. Stantchev is the fifth Lion in the past six years to qualify for the USGA's largest amateur championship. Blake Nicolai and Greg Moss qualified in 2009, while Brian Locke played in 2007 and 2008, and Jason D'Amore in 2004.
Incoming Lions Parker Middleton (Fr., Brophy College Prep, Scottsdale, AZ) and Eduardo Chavez (So., University of New Mexico; Bradenton, Fla.) will also be playing in qualifying rounds for the U.S. Amateur on Aug. 3. Middleton will be playing at the Farms, while Chaves qualified for the 2008 U.S. Amateur in a Florida qualifier and is listed to be doing the same in 2010. Greg Moss is playing a qualifying round on Aug. 2 at the Brentwood Country Club.
