Colorado State sets record in MWC win
Saturday, May 8, 2010
For the second time in three years, Colorado State won the Mountain West Conference Championship.
The Rams, No. 34 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings, secured the title Saturday at the Catalina Course at Tucson National with a 7-under 277 to win by 13 shots over UNLV. Their 18-under 834 total shattered the previous low team score at the MWC Championship of 844 set by San Diego State and TCU in 2009.
“We played well again today,” Colorado State coach Jamie Bermel said. “We played well all week. Everyone contributed at least two rounds. We were solid from top to bottom.”
Junior Ryan Peterson claimed the individual title at 8-under 205 finishing two shots better than UNLV’s Eddie Olson. He became the first Ram to win the MWC Championship since current PGA Tour player Martin Laird in 2002.
