Cedar Hill tournament winner leads Camosun Chargers

Collegiate golf season swings into fall season opener in Surrey last weekend

The Collegiate golf season started this weekend as the Camosun Chargers men’s team competed at Northview Golf and Country Club in Surrey over the weekend.

The Chargers’ finished second amongst the men’s teams at the Kwantlen University-hosted tournament with a combined score of 577, 13 strokes back of first place Fraser Valley Cascades.

Third-year Chargers Brady Stead (Vernon) and Grant Maskiewich (Smithers) led their team, tying for fourth overall at 143, eight strokes back of winner Connor O’Dell (FVC).

This season should be a strong one for the Chargers, third at last year’s Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) National Golf Championship, says coach John Randle.

“We have all five guys returning from our top-three nationally ranked team from last fall so if the guys play up to their potential, we will do just fine,” Randle said. “Like I always say, we look good on paper and I’m looking forward to see how we do on grass.”

The five returnees are joined by newcomer Scott Merriam from Cranbrook. Merriam clinched his spot on the roster after a strong showing during recent tryouts at the team’s home course of Bear Mountain Resort and Golf club.

Jarred Callbeck leads the team, having won multiple 2013 awards including his second consecutive CCAA All-Canadian, CCAA Academic All-Canadian and PACWEST First Team All-Star awards. In May, Callbeck won the 51st annual Cedar Hill Open Men’s Golf Tournament.

This weekend play returns to the Island as Vancouver Island University is set to host.
