March 20, 2005
Bandon, Ore. - The Oregon State University men's golf team defeated the No 24 University of Washington Huskies in the morning round of a four-team match play competition at the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort Saturday before falling to No. 2 Georgia Tech in the afternoon round. The Yellow Jackets defeated BYU in the opener.
The Beavers won three of five 18-hole matches against the Huskies. Ryan Gilmour (6 & 5), Tim Sundseth (3 & 2), and Mitch Gillis (4 & 2) earned victories, while Vincent Johnson (1-down) and Cameron MacKenzie (3 & 2) lost their matches.
The Yellow Jackets won four of five matches in the afternoon's 18-hole event. Sundseth (2 & 1) won his dual, while Johnson (6 & 5), MacKenzie (6 & 5), Gilmour (2-down) and Gillis (2 & 1) fell.
'Tim had a solid day of golf,' Beaver head coach Brian Watts said. 'He never got into trouble and was in complete control in both rounds.
As for the conditions, it was among the worst weather that I have ever had a team play in. The wind was blowing sustained 20 miles per hour and gusting to over 40. It was interesting to say the least.'
The men's and women's golf teams will be in action Monday and Tuesday at the Duck Invitational. The men's tournament is at the Eugene Country Club while the women will compete at the Shadow Hills Country Club in Junction City. The men's team will lead with Sundseth followed by Gilmour, Johnson, Brad Simpson and MacKenzie. The women's team will be anchored by Julie Uhrik, followed by Jessi Gebhardt, Alex Lucio, Jill Ferrante and Kelly Kerkvliet.
