Chris Collins Grabs His Sixth Top-10 Finish of WSU Career

Oct. 3, 2006

Corvallis, Ore. - Senior Chris Collins had yet another stellar day finishing the final round of the Northwest Collegiate Classic in a tie for fourth place overall to lead the cougars in scoring for the tournament. Shooting a first and third round 70 put Collins at 1-under at the end of the competition, just three strokes out of the top two.

The third and final round was contested under another good day of weather at the par-72 course, with cloudy skies, light winds and temperatures in the mid-60s. Rain was in the forecast today but it never happened. The Cougars took the course Tuesday morning and put together a third round 10-over 298. As a team the Cougars finished eighth, ahead of both Charleston and Portland. The Cougars collectively shot a 32-over 897.

In his first tournament of the year sophomore Max Reinland had a solid tournament being the second highest scorer for WSU behind Collins. Reinland shot a 10-over 226 for the tournament leaving him in a tie for 34th.

Playing as an individual senior Kevin Chen put together a nice tournament tallying back to back second and third round 73's finishing in a tie for 23rd. Chen's score did not count toward WSU's team score, but Chen did pick up his 12th top-25 finish of his Cougar career.
