Paced by Domingo Jojola (216), who finished third among individuals of participating teams, the Dons placed second in the 2006 Northwest Collegiate Classic which was completed Tuesday at the Trysting Tree Golf Club in Oregon.

The Dons (289, 876 total) outshot all but Oregon (291, 867) in the quality field, many of whom were NCAA tournament teams from last year. USF had the low score of the day, picking up two strokes on the Ducks. They beat, among others, WCC competitors St. Mary's, San Diego and Portland and Pac-10 competitor and host Oregon State.

Also playing well for USF were Kenny Adams (220) and Jesse Galvon (223). Galvin shot a 71 and Adams a 73 in Tuesday's final round.

"This was a good effort by the team," said Dons' head Coach Dr. Gary Nelson. "We are a little disappointed that we did not win the thing, but the effort was there. We hope to get over the hump and win a tournament soon.

The Dons will next participate in the Alister MacKenzie Invitational in Fairfax next Monday and Tuesday.
