Utah will compete among a field of 15 teams which include Boise State, Fresno State, Gonzaga, Idaho, Oregon State, Sacramento State, Saint Martin's, Saint Mary's, San Francisco, Seattle U, UT Arlington, Utah Valley, Washington and Western Washington.
The Utes' five-man lineup will consist of senior Mitchell Schow, juniors Tristan Mandur and Blake Tomlinson, and freshmen Javier Barcos and Jesper von Reedtz.
COACHES THOUGHTS: Head Coach Garrett Clegg
"We have been playing solidly in our last three events and I am expecting us to come out ready to play. Chamber's Bay is a course that three of the five players in our line-up have played. The grass is similar to playing at Bandon Dunes and so our experience playing there will help us at Chambers. This is a confident group and I'm excited to get back on the course with them."
The Seattle U Redhawk Invitational is a two-day tournament consisting of 54 holes with 36 being played on the first day and the final 18 on the second. The event will take place on March 29 and 30 with players teeing off on both days at 9:00 a.m. MT with a shotgun start format.
