Coach Dustin White's Thoughts on the Visit Stockton Invitational: "We want to come out and continue build on how we played at Oregon State. Control what we can. Make committed swings. Compete until we run out of holes. We feel good about where we're at - the next part is stringing it together for three days"
Last Time Out: Washington State sophomore Jaden Cantafio finished his three rounds at the Oregon State Invitational at 1-over 214 to lead the Cougars to a season-best fifth-place finish. The Cougars entered the final round in fifth and never moved Tuesday as they finished the three-day event at 17-over par, 869, after a third-round score of +7, 291. The fifth-place finish is the highest for a Cougar squad since finishing second at The Joust in Riverside, Calif, Feb. 22-23, 2020.
