WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- Billmeyer, from Omaha, Neb., helped the Beavers capture the tournament title at their own OSU/Diadora Classic with wins over UC Riverside and then-No. 12/No. 24 Tulsa. Billmeyer recorded eight saves in the 2-0 shutout win over the Highlanders Sept. 13. He posted two saves Sept. 15, as the Beavers defeated the Golden Hurricane 3-0 in the tournament final. Billmeyer garnered OSU/Diadora Classic Most Valuable Player honors for his efforts. The blankings were his second and third on the young season, already surpassing OSU's team total (2) from 2001.
