Cal State golfer honored

Cal State San Bernardino’s Gene Webster, Jr. was named California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Men’s Golfer of the Week for the week of April 12-18, announced Wednesday. It marks the second time this season he has been honored.

Webster, a senior from San Bernardino, turned in a record-setting performance while claiming individual medalist honors at the 17-team Hanny Stanislaus Invitational earlier this week at the Turlock Golf & Country Club.

As the only player in the field to shoot three sub-70 rounds, the Arroyo Valley high School product carded scores of 68-67-63 for a 198 total and a 12-shot victory. His final-round 63, an 18-hole tournament record, helped the Coyotes to a third-round score of 280 and tie host Cal State Stanislaus for the team title.

Cal State San Bernardino’s final-round 280 was the lowest round of the tournament and helped the Coyotes rally from a nine-shot deficit at the start of the day.
