Junior Grant Forrest earned medalist honors by carding a birdie on the first playoff hole (18th hole, par 5) against Kennesaw State's Jimmy Beck. Both players finished the three-round tournament with 6-under par totals of 210. Beck birdied the 18th in regulation, while Forrest earned a par from the greenside bunker.
It was truly a Torero team effort as five Toreros finished in the top-10 including freshman Nick Baines who tied for 4th at 217 (69-73-75) and was participating as an individual. Three Toreros tied for 8th overall with totals of 2-over 218 - sophomore Alex Chiarella (69-78-71), junior Mathias Dahl (73-72-73) and senior Taylor Schmidt (74-74-70).
"I'm very happy with the way our team played and competed," said head coach Cory Scoggin. "It wasn't just Grant, it was definitely a solid team effort. This is a great way to start our spring season and it will definitely give us a lot of confidence heading into our upcoming tournaments."
Torero sophomore Skyler Finnell finished in 16th place at 221 (74-74-73), while USD golfers rounding out the individual portion of the tournament included sophomore Will Twitty (T54 at 232, 77-79-76), Joe Carlson (T59 at 236, 82-78-76), and Mike Bosco (67th at 248, 81-85-82).
Besides defeating 31st-ranked Kennesaw State, the Toreros were 30 strokes better than Duke (5th, 887), and finished ahead of five other West Coast Conference opponents - LMU (3rd, 883), Pacific (4th, 884), Saint Mary's (6th, 890), Santa Clara (7th, 893), and San Francisco (9th, 898).
Up next for the Toreros will be the Pepperdine Invitational (Feb. 24-25) in Oxnard, California at Saticoy Country Club.
