Molner’s Victory leads Spokane to Bigfoot Invitational Team Title

ActionThe Community Colleges of Spokane extended its league lead in the NWAACC men’s golf standings by winning another league tournament.  Spokane was dominant in its home tournament, beating second place Bellevue College by 12 shots and third place Skagit Valley College by 28 shots.  The victory gives Spokane a two point advantage with one tournament left in the NWAACC regular season.  Teams earn a point for every team they beat during a league tournament.

Corey Meyers accomplished a feat that most great golfers are never able to do.  He shot a 7-under par 28 on the back nine of the first round of the tournament.  He carded seven birdies and two pars during the remarkable nine hole stretch.  His 6-under par 64 was the low round of the field on the first day by three shots.  Teammate Jason Molner shared a tie for second place after the first round with a score of 67.

Jason Molner was the tournament’s medalist with rounds of 76-69 for a 6-under par total and claimed a three stroke victory over Matt Epstein of Bellevue College.  Teammates Taylor Porter (73-70) finished in fourth place and Tyler Johnson (72-72) finished in a tie for fifth place.  Corey Meyers (64-82) earned a seventh place finishing, giving the Sasquatch four players in the top 10 of the 56-person field.  Molner’s individual victory was the second of his career as he won his first ever college golf tournament at the Choker Invitational hosted by Grays Harbor College during his freshman year.

As a team, Spokane finished the tournament at 6-under par making it two tournaments in a row that the team finished 6-under or better.  CCS shot 15-under par during the previous tournament at the Wenatchee League Tournament.  “Anytime a team has a score under par is very impressive.  This group of six golfers has made a habit of doing that during their two years in our program.  The guys are extremely dedicated to their golf games are a great group to be around,” said Coach Scott Kramer.

Spokane will take its two point lead into the final league tournament at the Centralia Invitational at the Riverside Golf Course on May 2-3.  CCS has won three straight big invitational golf tournaments and won four in a row overall.
