Host WWU (289-287-285-861; -3) rallied to win the tournament with a final round 3-under 285 to vault over 36-hole leader Chico State (284-289-290-863; -1), while British Columbia (290-288-292-870; +6) and Cal State East Bay (291-302-277-870; +6) tied for third in the 20-team field.
Freshman Triston Gardner (75-70-71) was DSU’s top finisher as he posted his first collegiate top-10 finish with a t-seventh 216 (E) after he fired a final round 1-under 71 with six birdies.
Senior Nicklaus Britt (75-76-75-226; +10) rolled in four birdies as part of a 4-over 75 to finish tied for 52nd at +10 226, while sophomore Spencer Wallace (74-79-74-227; +11) penciled in four birdies on his final card en route to a 2-over 74 to place t-60th overall at plus-11 227.
Freshman Noah Schone (81-74-73-228; +12) carded a 1-over 73 with an eagle and five birdies on his final loop to finish tied for 67th at plus-12 228, and sophomore Brock Nielson (79-79-74-232; +16) rebounded with a solid 2-over 74 with a pair of birdies and 12 pars to place t-79th at plus-16 232.
