After Rowe were Andrew Funk (+3/T4th), Bruce Tomie (+7/T10th), Mike Griffin(+17/T51) and Jacob Hayes (+19/T57).The Vikes women are eighth heading into Day 2, just five strokes out of fourth place. Quinn Fitzgeraldled with a five-over-par 77 (+5/T13th), followed by Rhiannon Jones (+8/T22nd), Hannah Diamond(+11/T35th), Laura Feirreira (+12/T40th) and Nicole Gargarella (+13/T45th). Get all the Day 1 results for the men here and the women here.

 

Last week Andrew Funk, Bruce Tomie and Lawren Rowe tied for third at the annual Vikes Shootout at Cordova Bay Golf Course.

Each finished with one-under-par 141’s.

“The guys are really meshing well – Lawren and Andrew and Bruce have been consistent to say the least this year,” said Vikes head coach Justin Clews. “They’re making themselves easy to take to every event if they keep playing this year.”

Golf season is going particularly well for the Vikes’ Rowe, who helped the men’s team win the Coastal Collegiate Classic in Gleneden Beach, Ore., Sept. 20. That day Rowe shot a three-under 68 to finish a tournament best 14-under par.

In September Rowe climbed from relative obscurity to No. 10 on Golf Canada’s Amateur Men’s Top 10.
