April 26, 2010
The University of La Verne scored a two-shot victory over the
University of Redlands at the 2010 SCIAC Golf Championships to
claim their fourth straight SCIAC title. La Verne, which
trailed Redlands and Claremont-Mudd-Scripps by one point after the
five SCIAC 18 hole tournaments, shot 586 at the SCGA Members Club
in Murrietta on Monday to edge Redlands (588) for the
championship. CMS finished third with a score of 594,
Occidental and Pomona-Pitzer tied for fourth (603), Cal Lutheran
was sixth (612) and Whittier was seventh (621).
CMS’ Tain Lee earned medalist honors with a score of 139 edging Redlands’ Ray Biggerstaff by one shot. La Verne’s Mitch Fedorka was third (143) followed by his teammate, Eric Bunge (144). Occidental’s Andrew Larkin and Pomona-Pitzer’s J.D. Nako tied for fifth (145).
The final team standings are determined by points earned at each 18-hole tournament (seven for first down to one for seventh) and the points earned at the SCIAC Championships (14 for first down to two for seventh). La Verne won with 42 points. Redlands was second with 40, CMS was third with 39, Occidental was fourth with 27, Pomona-Pitzer and Whittier tied for fifth with 19 and Cal Lutheran was seventh with 10.
