Aug. 17, 2006

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario -- Riding the momentum of his recent success, future Husky men's golfer Nick Taylor advanced to the quarterfinals of match play at the Canadian Men's Amateur Championship before falling to defending champion Richard Scott in 19 holes, Thursday.

Taylor, the 2006 Canadian Junior Champion who will be a freshman at UW in the fall, rattled off a pair of wins in the second and third rounds, Wednesday, to earn his spot in today's quarterfinals. Taylor upset last year's Junior Champion Mitchell Fox,1up, in the second round Wednesday morning. Fox was the 10th-seeded player in match play, while Taylor was seeded 23rd. Taylor then went on to beat Christopher Ross, 4&2, in the afternoon third round.

Taylor is a native of Abbotsford, B.C. and in additional to his national junior title, won the B.C. Junior earlier this summer. He hails from the same hometown and course as former Husky James Lepp.

Up next for the UW, Erik Olson and Alex Prugh will be competing in the U.S. Amateur in Chaska, Minn., August 21-27.
