CSUN Can't Improve from Ninth at OGIO UC Santa Barbara Intercollegiate

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Senior Kyler Sauer posted his third top-20 finish of the season but his Cal State Northridge team was unable to move up and wound up ninth after the final round of the OGIO UC Santa Barbara Intercollegiate Tuesday at Sandpiper G.C. 

Sauer hovered around even-par for the final two rounds before ultimately finishing Tuesday's final round at even-par 72 which left the senior 11th at two-over 218. Sauer, who has CSUN's best finish of the season (2nd), has been the Matadors' low scorer in five of 10 tournaments in 2013-14.

The rest of the squad dropped in the final round as Michael O'Connor slipped from 21st to 31st following a final round 77. O'Connor was bidding for his third top-20 finish after a second round 70 but wound up with rounds of 77-70-77 to finish at eight-over 224.

Aden Louez couldn't match his consecutive rounds of 75 on Monday as he posted a final round 79 to slip into a tie for 44th at 13-over 229. Oscar Sachs tied for 58th at 24-over 240 with rounds of 79-80-81 and Dodge Ward was disqualified following round two for signing an incorrect scorecard. Ward had scores of 77-72 in his two rounds.

The Matadors also had five individuals compete as Steven Molumby was 33rd at nine-over 224 (74-73-78), Nick Sarian tied for 51st at 18-over 234 (78-78-78), Sam Engel (77-81-83) and Jared LeGrand (78-79-84) both tied for 60th at 25-over 241 and Martin Dymon tied for 64th at 27-over 243 with scores of 79-81-83.

Long Beach State (869) won the team title by two shots over the host Gauchos (871) while Sacramento State's Owen Taylor won individual medalist honors with a four-under 212.

Cal State Northridge has two weeks to prepare for the Big West Championship which takes place April 27-29 at Soboba Springs C.C. in San Jacinto.
