Ducks Slide to Sixth After Final Round of Western Intercollegiate

April 9, 2002

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. - The Oregon men's golf team shot a final round 298 Tuesday and fell to sixth place in the final standing at the Western Intercollegiate, played at the 6,445-yard, par 70 Pasatiempo Golf Course.

Senior Brandon Harnden, who had a 74 Tuesday, tied for 11th at 2-over 212. Senior Aaron Byers tied for 25th at 219, but suffered a final-round 79. Junior Chris Carnahan had the Ducks' low round Tuesday, a 71, and finished tied for 30th at 220.

'Sixth is still a decent finish,' said Oregon coach Steve Nosler. 'It was disappointing that we couldn't keep things going in the right direction like we have been, but I think we'll come right back.'

No. 12 Washington tallied an 834 total to win the tournament by 20 strokes over No. 10 Fresno State. San Jose State was third at 856, followed by Kansas at 865, UC Irvine at 866 and Oregon.

'We just didn't get the job done today,' said Nosler. 'We didn't have to do anything spectacular. If we would have just played decently, we'd have been O.K. '

Oregon returns to action Friday and Saturday at the Thunderbird Invitational in Tempe.
