Junior Tyler Torano finished in a three-way tie for fourth place yesterday at the West Coast Conference (WCC) Championships in Bremerton, Wash. His finish is the best for LMU in championships since Greg Moss won the WCC title in 2009. Torano recorded a final score of 216 over the entirety of the tournament, shooting 1-under-par 71 consecutively over par the last two rounds.
Torano started off the tournament with a 2-over-par 74 on Monday, putting him in 13th place. A second round score of 71 put the junior in ninth place entering the final round. After a bogey on the first hole, Torano exploded for five birdies, propelling himself five spots to fourth place.
The Lions as a team finished in seventh place for the tournament, 11 strokes behind sixth place Pepperdine University.
Despite Torano’s top-five finish, his final round score was not the lowest for the Lions. Freshman Connor Campbell jumped 14 places to 23rd after a third round 2-under-par 70.
Senior Eduardo Chavez finished in 30th place, senior Bryan Bergna finished in 33rd and freshman Chase Nicolai placed 34th, rounding out the Lions’ efforts in Washington.
