UBC, Laval Prevail at Canadian University/College Championships

– University of Waterloo’s Devon Rizzo and Garrett Rank win individual titles –

Victoria, B.C. (Golf Canada) – The University of British Columbia (UBC) Thunderbirds captured their fourth consecutive national women’s title, while the Laval Rouge et Or earned their second national men’s title in the last three years at the Canadian University/College Championship, conducted by Golf Canada, at Cordova Bay Golf Course in Victoria, B.C.

The Thunderbirds, perennial favorites in the Championship’s women’s division, posted a four-day total of 44-over 896, besting the University of Victoria (UVic) Vikes by 13 strokes to win their ninth national title in the Championship’s ten-year history.

All four members of the UBC Women’s Squad posted top-10 individual finishes, including Alyssa Human of Kamloops, B.C., who led the Thunderbirds in scoring for the week at 11-over 295, good for a third place finish in the individual women’s competition. Edmonton’s Kylie Barros, last year’s women’s champion, shot 16-over 300 for the championship and finished fifth. Stephanie Wong of Richmond, B.C. placed T6 at 20-over 304, while Reagan Wilson of Calgary was ninth at 30-over 314.

The Université de Montréal Carabins, University of Waterloo Warriors, and Université Laval Rouge et Or, finished third through fifth respectively.

Waterloo’s Devon Rizzo of Brantford, Ont. captured the women’s individual title, besting UVic’s Megan Woodland of Victoria, B.C. in a three-hole playoff. The pair finished at 8-over 292 for the tournament.

The Université Laval Rouge et Or team of Charles Côté of Thetford-Mines, Que., Sonny Michaud of Rouyn-Noranda, Que., Ugo Coussaud of Quebec City, Max Gilbert of Saint-Georges-de-Beauce, Que. and Julien Proulx of Quebec City captured the men’s title with a 12-stroke victory over the University of Waterloo Warriors, finishing at 10-under 1126 for the championship.

UBC, the Humber College Hawks and the Université de Montréal Carabins finished third through fifth respectively.

Gilbert, Coussaud, Côté and Michaud posted top-five finishes, with Gilbert finishing with a four-day tally of 3-under 281, three shots back of men’s individual champion Garrett Rank of Elmira, Ont., a Waterloo Warrior and a member of Team Canada’s National Squad.

“It got off to a pretty slow start, just very consistent, lots of pars on the front-nine, just trying to get the putter hot,” said Rank, who mounted a late charge to secure the victory. “Eventually, on the back-nine, really a late rally with four birdies in the last six holes, and that’s really what helped.”

Rank finished at 6-under 278 for the championship, converting five birdies on the day.

The top six males and top five females at the Canadian University/College Championship received an exemption into the 2012 World University Golf Championship that will be contested in early July in the Czech Republic.

The 2013 Canadian University/College Championship will be hosted by ClubLink Corporation in the province of Quebec from May 27 – 31, 2013.
