Blue Team to Compete in Braveheart Classic

March 4, 2006

The UCLA men's golf Blue Team makes its fourth trip in as many weeks by traveling to the UC Riverside Braveheart Classic at Oak Valley Golf Club in Beaumont.

The UCLA lineup features juniors Peter Campbell and Chris Heintz, sophomores Brandon Christianson and Matt Marshall, and freshman Lucas Lee.

Last week, this group finished fifth at the Cal State Bakersfield Invitational. The Bruin Blues won their first two events of 2006 with a different lineup.

Marshall was the team's top finisher at the last event, tying for 16th place with a 36-hole score of 154. The previous week, he tied for ninth place at the Cougar Invitational with a 54-hole score of 222.

Christianson tied for 19th place at Bakersfield after recording a pair of Top 10 finishes the previous two weeks. In four Blue Team appearances this season, he has placed in the Top 20 in each of them.

Lee, who won the Cougar Invitational, leads the team with eight rounds under par and boasts a solid scoring average of 73.0, a Blue Team leader. In six appearances this season, he has recorded four Top 20 finishes, including two Top 10s.

Campbell finished second at the Pala Mesa Invitational with a 54-hole score of 213 (-3) and Heintz tied for third at The Prestige in October with a three-round score of 214 (-2).
