Allred, Tredway excel in tourney
STANFORD, Calif. -- Ashland's Jason Allred finished sixth at the U.S. Intercollegiate golf championship at Stanford Golf Club on Saturday.
The annual Stanford tournament featured over 100 players from 20 universities.
Allred shot rounds of 70-70-73 to give him a 213 for the tournament, seven strokes behind tournament leader Michael Beard of Pepperdine.
Allred, who is a freshman at Pepperdine, tallied his third consecutive top six finish at major college events with his sixth place finish.
Brigham Young won the men's team title with an 852, while the Oregon finished in second, 10 strokes back, thanks to the efforts of former Ashland High standout Andrew Tredway. The junior tied for 12th place overall with rounds of 71-73-71.
Pepperdine finished in fifth with a 870, while Oregon State finished in a sixth-place tie at 871.
The Ducks also grabbed low-round honors with their 283 in the final 18 of the tournament.
I'm really proud. We had the low round of the day, we passed four teams and had a really strong finish, said Oregon coach Steve Nosler. We accomplished a lot, and the momentum will help us with the West Regionals coming up. This was a confidence builder for us.
Both Pepperdine and Oregon are among 18 teams advancing to the NCAA Division I Western Regional championship in Tucson, Ariz., May 20-22. The top nine teams from the regional championship will advance to the NCAA Championship held in Minnesota in June.
On the women's side at the NCAA Women's Golf Regional in Texas, Oregon finished 12th with a 932 total, while Oregon State (935) was 14th.
