Stanford, Calif. - Senior Kevin Stadler shot a one-under-par 210, including two rounds of 69, to lead the No. 10 USC men's golf team to the championship at the U.S. Intercollegiate tournament held at Stanford Golf Course on April 20-21.
The Trojans shot 848 over 54 holes to finish 10 strokes ahead of second-place Stanford (858). UCLA was third (862), followed by Oregon (865) and Washington State (870). It's the second team title for Troy this season.
Stadler was one of three Trojans who finished in the top four, taking second place behind tourney champ Philip Rowe of Stanford (205). It's the fifth top-five finish of the season for Stadler and his third time in the runner up spot.
The Trojans had a fine tournament all around, as junior Chris Botsford and freshman Ben Hayes each shot 212 to tie for fourth. Sophomore Scott Oxandaboure, competing as an individual, shot 214 to tie for eighth, while freshman Nico Bollini shot 217 and tied for 17th and junior David Oh shot 220 to tie for 33rd.
Next up for USC are the Pac-10 Championships at Trysting Tree Golf Course in Corvallis, Ore., on April 25-27. The Trojans will be seeking their second-straight conference crown.
