Chargers riding PacWest gold at golf nationals

Camosun men's team cleans up at Pacific Western Athletic Association Golf tournament

The Camosun Chargers men’s golf team is headed back to Chilliwack this week for the Canadian College National Championships.

The Chargers were in Chilliwack on Oct. 3-4 where they won the Pacific Western Athletic Association Golf tournament, finishing an astounding 54 strokes ahead of the next best team with a score of 2318. The University of the Fraser Valley was second with 2372 and UBC-Okanagan took bronze with 2414.

The Chargers returned to Chilliwack for nationals this week.

For the Chargers, the provincial title comes after three straight seasons of finishing second.

“It was a great year and the margin of victory was the biggest I have seen,” said Chargers head coach John Randle.

Fifth-year Charger Brady Stead was named king of the course, earning the PacWest individual title, the men’s player of the year award and a spot on the PacWest All-Star team. His four-tournament total was 572, followed by second-place Connor O’Dell (UFV) at 576 and Steven Hayes (Douglas College) at 577.

“My goal at the beginning of every year at Camosun has been to win the individual title, so it feels great to pull it off in my final year,” Stead said.

“Almost everything that I know about the golf swing I have learned from [coach Randle]. We worked very hard my first few years on improving my golf swing and although I struggled a little in the past, John did not stop believing in me and I cannot thank him enough for that.”
