Oxy Opens SCIAC Golf Championships

LOS ANGELESSamuel Miller and Tanay Srivastav led the Occidental men's golf team to an outstanding first day of competition, each shooting a 2-under 68 in Round 1 of 3 at the SCIAC Men's and Women's Golf Championships on Friday.

The Oxy men were the third-best group out of eight on the first day and beat a nationally-ranked team in Redlands for the second round in a row.

The Oxy women were led by first year Brianna Kim, who had a team-low of 80, followed by senior captain Samantha Rocha who shot 83. The Tigers are currently in seventh place in the competition and seventh overall in the standings.

The conference championship is determined by seven total rounds with four already having been played this season and this the first of three this weekend. The Oxy men have a good chance to hold their position in the top four overall in the SCIAC with two more days of solid golf.

The Tigers are back in action at 8:04 am on Friday morning.
