With Tournament #1 in the books, Coach Randle and his squad have three more events to make the steep climb from their current fourth-place spot in the standings. 

“It was a tough weekend for us,” comments Chargers Head Coach John Randle. “Morningstar is a course where keeping the ball in play is the key and the guys struggled to do it. We have dug ourselves a deep hole and have six rounds to climb out.”

In individual play, Will Deck from UBC-O collected the low men’s total with 140. Camosun’s Jarred Callbeck finished 7th with 148 while teammate Grant Maskiewich shot 150 to tie for 12th. Chargers returnee Brady Stead was 19th with a score of 157 and rookie Martin Kim completed his two rounds with 166.

“I am proud of the guys because their effort was fantastic and their conduct was very sportsmanlike, even during a very frustrating stretch,” states Coach Randle. “I look forward to a good week of practice and getting up to Kelowna next weekend!”

The Chargers hit the links at the Okanagan Golf Club this weekend for PACWEST Tournament #2 hosted by UBC-Okanagan, September 14-15.
