WWU women's golf wins GNAC title by 16 strokes


Jake Webb took medalist honors in a playoff with Dylan Goodwin as Western Washington was again victorious at the Sixth Annual Great Northwest Athletic Conference Men's Golf Championships which ended Tuesday, April 23, in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.

The Vikings, who have won all six GNAC titles, finished with a round of 286, the best of the tournament, for a 54-hole total of 867. Saint Martin's was second at 883 (290), followed by Simon Fraser (305=891), Montana State Billings (301=905) and Northwest Nazarene (297=924).

Goodwin shot an even par 71 in the final round to tie Webb, who shot 75 after a tourney-best second-round 68, at even par 213. That forced a playoff which Webb won with a birdie on the first hole.

Also placing among the top 10 for the Vikings were Kyle Schrader and Mark Strickland. Schrader fired a 2-under 69 to tie for fifth at 218, and Strickland shot 71 to tie for eighth at 223.
