The Camosun Chargers’ men’s golf team just missed a medal finish at the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association’s National Golf Championships.
The Rodd Brudenell River Golf Course hosted the three-day event, which ran Oct. 19 to 22 in Roseneath, Prince Edward Island.
Despite a great opening round that had the Chargers tied for second overall, the team settled for a fourth-place finish.
It was the last chance at nationals for fifth-year players Phil Kondrak, Jordan Krulicki and Kevin Walz, who were joined by third-year Justin Deol and second-year Jared Hundza.
“It was a disappointing day,” Chargers coach John Randle said. “But the guys tried their best.”
Toronto’s Humber College won the tourney with a total of 587 shots, with Charlotteton’s (P.E.I) Holland College in second (609). The Chargers (613) tied for third with the University of the Fraser Valley (Abbotsford) but lost in a tiebreaker.
Walz led the Chargers with a 150 total, shooting 75 on both days. Hundza (Pacific Christian) and Kondrak (St. Andrews) both shot 156 while Krulicki (Red Deer) was one stroke over par at 157.
The Chargers won the eight-team PacWest golf title earlier this year, four strokes ahead of Fraser Valley.
