Chargers snag national title

Camosun claims national collegiate men’s golf crown

Brady Stead helped the Camosun College Chargers win the men’s Canadian Collegiate golf championship. Stead fired a three-round total of 210 to finish with the fourth best individual score.

The Camosun Chargers overtook the Niagara Knights to win the men’s Canadian Collegiate golf championship with a late charge on the third and final round at the Chilliwack Golf Club Friday.

The Chargers – comprised of Brady Stead, Jeff Riches, Mac Keats, Grant Maskiewich and Matt Matheson – totalled 860 strokes as a team over three rounds. Despite starting the final day behind Niagara, the Chargers finished eight strokes ahead of the silver medalists.

“It was a great season, the guys played well from start to finish,” said Chargers coach John Randle. “The depth of our team paid off as we had five guys contributing every day. Our high score the last two days was 73, showing how strong our whole team was.”

After a first round team score of 291 the Chargers were left seven back of the lead. But the 2015 B.C. champs roared back with a monstrous second round team score of 282, the best round by any team in the tournament. They followed that up with a 287 on Friday, the second best score of that day, behind only the host University of  Fraser Valley Cascades, who earned bronze.

Étienne Papineau of the Champlain St. Lawrence Lions won the men’s individual title with a final three-round score of 206. Camosun’s Brady Stead, who last week won the provincial title, was fourth (210), with teammate Matt Matheson the next closest in sixth (215).

It’s the Chargers first Canadian Collegiate golf championship since the inaugural  tournament in 2000.

“I’m very proud of the guys. They worked hard and deserved the rewards, go Chargers,” Randle said.
