Tritons Have Subpar Showing

    In a field of 15 schools, the Tritons placed No. 14, finishing with a team score of 924 points — 41 points behind top finishers CSU Stanislaus and Western Washington.

    Freshman Jay Lim and sophomore David Smith were UCSD’s top performers, both hitting 230, 14 over par. Lim and Smith finished just in front of sophomore Lewis Simon, who hit 231 and finished 48th overall.

    Lim, Smith and Simon have consistently been the top finishers for the Tritons, but UCSD seems to still be struggling with filling in the hole left by graduating senior Keith Okasaki, who was arguably the strongest golfer on the roster for the past four years.

    CSU Stanislaus and Western Washington tied to take the team title, finishing with 887 points apiece, 23 over par.
    Sonoma State was No. 3 with a combined score of 890, while Nova Southeastern finished as No. 4. Nova Southeastern’s Ben Taylor took top individual finisher merits, hitting 211.

    The Tritons are set to return to the green on Nov. 7-8 to finish their fall season schedule at the Sonoma State Invitational at the Santa Rosa Golf and Country Club.
