MIAMI SHORES, Fl. - Western Washington University's Dylan Goodwin (Jr., Mukilteo/Kamiak) fired a 2-under par 69 to place eighth in medalist play and the Vikings tied for sixth in the team standings at the Barry University Buccaneer Invitational which ended Tuesday at the Normandy Shores Golf Club.
WWU, ranked No.10 in the latest Golf Coaches Association of America/NCAA Division II Top 25 Poll, shot 284, its best round of the two-day tournament, for a 54-total of 863.
No.1-ranked Barry won its own tourney for the fifth straight year, shooting 279 for an 841 total. That was four strokes better than runner-up Laval (283=845), located in Quebec, Canada. No.4 Nova Southeastern (278=846) was third and No.2 Lynn (281=851) tied for fourth with Cal State Stanislaus (283=851).
"We had a decent day," said WWU coach Steve Card (19th year). "We shot even par and had three scores under par, which is respectable.
"We were very close to having a good day, but the guys battled and it was a very good event for us. Hopefully we can continue to grow."
Goodwin placed eighth at 4-under par 209.
Three players tied for medalist honors at 7-under 206. They were Ricardo Celia from Nova Southeastern, who shot a final-round 64; Marcelo Rozo (68) from Lynn and Nova Southeastern's Oscar Lengden (72), who was the first-day leader.
The Vikings' Jake Webb (Jr., Issaquah/Skyline) tied for 26th at 217 (70), Craig Crawford (So., Stanwood/Highland Christian) tied for 33rd at 218 (70), Nick Varelia (Sr., Kent/Kentwood) tied for 38th at 219 (75) and Brian Barhanovich (Sr., Everett) tied for 63rd at 226 (77).
WWU completes its regular season on Apr. 16-17 at the Cal State Stanislaus Invitational.
