Ninth-Place Finish for CSUN at Del Walker Intercollegiate

LONG BEACH, Calif. - A final round 297 was not enough to pull the Cal State Northridge men's golf team out of ninth-place at the conclusion of the Del Walker Intercollegiate Golf Classic Tuesday at Virginia C.C.

The Matadors wound up posting team rounds of 311-299-297 for a score of 907. The host Long Beach State 49ers (838) won the team championship while Loyola Marymount's Tyler Torano won individual medalist honors.

Oscar Sachs fired an even-par 70 on Tuesday to move up eight spots from 43rd into a tie for 35th to pace the Matadors. Sachs, who posted rounds of 79-74-70 for a three-round (+13) 223, was CSUN's low scorer for the second straight tournament.

Ryan Green finished with a round of (+13) 83 to drop from 30th to 48th at (+21) 231. Green opened with rounds of 72-76 on Monday. Matt Siporin, coming back from injury, finished 49th at (+22) 232 in his first spring tournament. After a tough opening round of 84, Siporin posted back-to-back rounds of four over-par 74.

Zach Leonard matched his low 54-hole total of the season, finishing 52nd at (+24) 234. Leonard fired a final round 74 on Tuesday after back-to-back rounds of 80 on Monday. Kyler Sauer also tied for 52nd with rounds of 80-75-79.

The Matadors also sent a trio of individuals to the tournament with Steven Molumby finishing 43rd at (+18) 228 following rounds of 78-72-78. Nick Sarian tied for 55th at (+25) 255 after posting scores of 79-81-75 and Shane Blanchard was 57th at (+37) 247 following rounds of 87-82-79.
