Top-10 Finish for Both CSUN and Ward at Fresno State Classic

FRESNO, Calif. - Dodge Ward posted his best collegiate finish while the Cal State Northridge men's golf team moved into the top-10 following the final round of the Fresno State Classic Tuesday at San Joaquin C.C.

The Matadors stood 11th after posting rounds of 307-303 on Monday before trimming an additional nine strokes with a final round 294. 

Ward was certainly instrumental in the surge as the junior fired a one-over 72 on Tuesday. Ward, who's season low round of 69 came the Del Walker Intercollegiate last week, moved up four spots Tuesday as he tied for ninth at seven-over 220.

Senior Kyler Sauer also had a solid final round as he overcame a disastrous 82 in round two to move back up nearly 20 spots into the top-35. Sauer bounced back with a one-over 72 to finish at 14-over 227.

Aden Louez also had his low round of the tournament on Tuesday as he carded a three-over 74 to finish at 16-over 229 with scores of 79-76-74.

In the six-player, four scores count field, CSUN also got a 58th-place showing from Oscar Sachs who finished at 22-over 235 following rounds of 81-76-78, while Michael O'Connor was tied for 63rd at 24-over 237 with scores of 83-78-76 and Nick Sarian tied for 73rd at 27-over 240 with scores of 80-78-82. Jared LeGrand also competed individually and tied with Sarian at 27-over 240 following rounds of 78-83-79.
