Team champion: UCLA (42-over 1194).

UW team finish: 18-over-par 306. The Huskies
finished the tournament at 56-over 1208, seventh alone out of 30

seven.

On a day when scoring was high again, Taylor’s 75 placed him in
second with Indiana’s Jorge Campillo (72). It is the UW’s best finish
at the NCAAs since James Lepp won the 2005 title over Tacoma’s Michael
Putnam (Pepperdine) in a playoff. Other Huskies include Bixler (303,
tied for 23rd), Choo (310, tied for 55th), Wallace (313, tied for 64th)
