UCSD Golf Wraps up 2001 Season

    The UCSD golf team played its final tournament of the year in the District Eight Qualifier at Butte Creek Country Club in Chico, Calif.

    The Tritons finished sixth out of nine teams with a three-round score of 938.

    The top school overall was California State University Stanislaus, which stroked an 883.

    Darrin Sulivan was the top Triton, scoring a 229 for 14th place. Ben Page placed 25th with a 234 and Matt Howe took 32nd with a 239. Rounding out the top UCSD five were Greg Wilson with a 241 for 35th and Lenny Lanford with a 246 for 40th.

    “”All the teams played pretty badly,”” said UCSD head coach Mike Wydra. “”[But] there are some fantastic players.””

    This was UCSD’s first year in Division II and the team realized the course and the competition are tough.

    “”We played nothing but tournaments,”” Wydra said. “”Clubs try their best to make courses tough. They don’t want to look bad.””

    Though the Tritons are ranked 20th in the nation, they will not play at the quarterfinals in Springfield, Mo. in May. Five of the best schools in the nation are out West in District Eight, but only four are chosen from each region to go to the quarterfinals. UCSD will be the odd team out.

    There is still hope that UCSD will send a few individual stars if Howe and Sulivan are selected to compete.
