What's Happening With The WSU Men's Team:
WSU In The Rankings: The Cougar football team isn't the only team from WSU to make an appearance in national rankings. The WSU men's golf team is ranked 31st by Golfstat and 33rd in the Golfweek/Sagarin ratings. In addition, the Cougars are fifth in the Golfweek/Sagarin District Eight rankings.
They Are In The Rankings Because:The Cougars have posted a top three finish in four of the five tournaments the team has competed in this fall. WSU secured a victory at the Vandal Fall Invitational, Sept. 25, and finished second at the Northwest Classic, Sept. 11 and the Husky Invitational, Oct. 2. In addition, the team finished third at the Wolf Pack Classic, Oct. 9. The Cougars posted a sixth place finish at the Pacific Invitational, Oct. 23.
In The Top 10: Junior Dustin White (Pueblo West, Colo.) recorded his fourth top 10 finish of the fall season with a fifth place effort at the Pacific Invitational, Oct. 23. By placing in the top five at Pacific, White has finished in the top 10 in four of the five tournaments he has competed in this fall. White just missed cracking the top 10 with his 11th place effort at the Vandal Fall Invitational, Sept. 25.
Reehoorn Moving Up: Senior Jon Reehoorn (Burlington, Wash.) posted his 20th career top 25 finish with his tie for 17th at the Pacific Invitational, Oct. 23. Reehoorn shot rounds of 76-69-75 to post a score of 220 (+4) to place in the top 25 for the fourth time this fall. Reehoorn only trails Chris Jorgensen (1992-94) on the school record list in that category. Jorgensen recorded 25 career top 25 finishes at WSU.
Aces In Nevada: In the morning's opening round of the University of Nevada Wolf Pack Classic, Oct. 9, WSU recorded a score of 270, shattering the previous single round team scoring record of 276 set in 1998 and 2001. In that record opening round in Nevada, all five Cougars - Jon Reehoorn (66), Dustin White (67), Ryan Camp (68), Isaac Woods (69), and Jeremy Taylor (69) - posted scores in the 60's. Reehoorn, a senior from Burlington, Wash., set the school standard for a score in relation to par with his nine-under par tally at Nevada. Reehoorn's 54-hole score of 207 is only behind the school record score of 205 set by Matt Hartley at the Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate in 1998.
