Pullman, Wash.--- Washington State's men's golf team ended a slump at its last tournament, the Border Olympics. After faltering in the first round, the women's team continued its solid spring play by making an inspiring comeback at the Utah Dixie Classic. Either way, both teams will head into the Inland Collegiate Challenge in Spokane on a high note.
The one-day tournament will be played Friday, April 7, at Indian Canyon Golf Course with the first 18 holes beginning at 7:30 a.m. and the final round starting approximately at noon. The tournament field on both the men's and women's side consists of Washington State, Idaho, Gonzaga and host school Eastern Washington.
The Cougar men are the defending team champions and sophomore Jon Reehoorn (76.1 average per round) is looking to defend the individual title he won in 1999. Reehoorn will be joined by senior Eric Toomey (75.8), sophomores Jeremy Taylor (75.1) and Roger Flynn (82.3), and freshmen Matt McGeeney (77.6) and Dustin White (82.4).
This is the first year that the women's team will also play in the event. WSU should make a strong push for the team title. Junior Jennifer Dodd (76.4) and sophomore Tasha Browner (77.8) are coming off top-20 performances at the 25-team Utah Dixie Classic and are among the favorites in the tournament. Senior Jenny Ballou (78.5), sophomore Becky Greggain (80), and freshmen Donna Bell (80.7), Shanelle Roberts (80.7), and Jackie Stevens (86) will compete for the Cougars along with Dodd and Browner.
