LAST YEAR IN SIMI VALLEY
LBSU and Arizona State shared the team title at last year's Bill Cullum Invitational as a two-hour fog delay prevented the two teams to play in a playoff to determine the tournament champion. Both the 49ers and Sun Devils finished with a 54-hole score of 11-under par 853, winning by 13 shots over second-place Denver (+2) and 16 strokes over third-place Sacramento State (+5). Senior Philip Chian tied for 15th at 1-over 217, while J.J. Holen tied for 27th (+5) and Raymond Ho tied for 63rd (+14).
HO TIES FOR SECOND AT VCU SHOOTOUT
Senior Raymond Ho recorded a 2-under par 214 to tie for second place at the VCU Shootout in Manakin-Sabot, Va. Ho led the way for LBSU recording rounds of 71, 71 and 72 at the Hermitage Country Club to finish just four strokes behind first. LBSU placed third in the 12-team field at 24-over 888.
