Chapman ties for seventh at SCIAC Tournament #4

PASADENA, Calif. – A pair of top-20 individual finishes could not help the Chapman University men's golf team from tying for seventh place at the SCIAC Tournament #4 at Brookside Golf Club in Pasadena on Tuesday. The tournament was the second-to-last event of the season for the Panthers.

Chapman scored 324 overall, tied with Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Colleges. The Panthers finished 17 strokes behind tournament winner University of Redlands, which won the eight-team event with an overall score of 307.

It was junior Travis Walker who paced the Panthers with a score of 77. Walker's 5-over par was the eighth-best in the tournament and was his first top-10 finish of the season. His impressive performance was derived from a 1-under par score on par 3's which led all tournament players.

Senior Van Pierce finished with a score of 81 which tied him for 20th overall. Pierce had a tough front nine, but came back strong with a 39 on the back and captured another top-20 finish. Freshman Sean Dusselier's 82 came within one stroke of matching Pierce's performance. Dusselier finished 27th in the tournament.

Juniors Tony DeFrancis, Michael Green and freshman Rohan Bahri finished the day with scores of 84, 88, and 89, respectively.
