Camp Leads Cougars to Ninth at Oregon Duck Invitational

March 27, 2001

EUGENE, Ore. --- Washington State freshman Ryan Camp fired a career-best, three-round 223 to lead the Cougars to a ninth place finish at the Oregon Duck Invitational.

WSU played its best round in nearly a month on Tuesday, as freshman Isaac Woods shot a 71, Dustin White carded a 72, and juniors Jon Reehoorn and Jeremy Taylor followed with a pair of 76s. Their 295 was the third best round of the day, and helped the Cougars jump from 13th to a final standing of ninth.

'It was good to see them respond the way they did today,' head coach Walt Williams said. 'But we have to stop putting ourselves in this position. It's a matter of being consistent for us right now.'

Despite not contributing to the scoring in the final round, Camp placed 23rd overall and scorched the par 72 Eugene Country Club for a career-best 70 in the second round. Washington State's next best finisher was Reehoorn, who tied for 31st with a 224.

'That was the type of performance that we need from Ryan Camp,' head coach Walt Williams said. 'I think this is the shot of confidence that he needed for the stretch run of the season.'

San Diego State held off four Pac-10 teams to win the team medal. The Aztecs edged Washington by one stroke, while Oregon, UCLA, and Arizona State swept the three through five spots.

UC-Santa Barbara's Jeff Wood used a 67 and 71 in the last two rounds to take top individual honors. His six-under par 210 was three shots better than Colorado State's Martin Laird, who was the runner-up.

The Oregon Duck Invitational marked an incredible four-day journey for the Cougars. After playing 36 holes in Texas on Saturday and Sunday, WSU had to fly to Oregon for another 54 holes on Monday and Tuesday.

Washington State will tee it up next at the Diet Pepsi/Wichita State Shocker Classic in Wichita, Kan., on Apr. 9-10.
