“It was great to see everyone playing well this weekend and contributing,” commented Chargers Head Coach John Randle. “We closed the gap between us and the top three and are hosting the next events so we are in a much better spot.”

In cumulative standings, Camosun sits 8 strokes behind the third-place Douglas College Royals and 11 off the number two-ranked UBC Okanagan Heat. UFV remains in first place with a solid 33-stroke lead over the pack.

The PACWEST golf teams hit the links at the Bear Mountain Golf Club September 28-29 as Camosun hosts the third tournament of the season’s series of four.
