Vallejo, Calif. - The WCC men's and women's golf teams completed the first day of the 2009 WCC Golf Championships, playing two rounds of 18 holes on Monday.
On the men's side, San Francisco leads the way after compiling a team score of 294 in the first round and coming back to shoot an impressive second round of 271 in the afternoon. The Dons' 565 is four strokes ahead of current second place holder, Loyola Marymount.
All five Dons shot under par in the second round, propelled by senior Kurt Nino's second round 64, the lowest any golfer in the field shot during the tournament so far. The team's 271 is the lowest since shooting a 273 at the Alister MacKenzie Invitational in 2003, and Nino's 64 ties the Championship low with San Francisco's Robert Frye back in 2004.
In the individual race, Loyola Marymount's Greg Moss stands as the leading golfer with a total score of 135. Close behind is San Francisco's Domingo Jojola, who holds a total score of 137 on the day.
For the women, No. 13-ranked Pepperdine continues its hot streak at the WCC Championships, nabbing sole possession of first place with a total score of 601, just two strokes ahead of San Francisco. The Waves were bolstered by individual leader, senior Jayvie Agojo, who shot a par-72 in the first round and finished the day with a 146. Close behind Agojo is San Francisco's Danielle Cvitanov with a 150.
The final round of the WCC Men's and Women's Championships will be played tomorrow. The men will tee off at 7:30 AM, and the women will begin at 8:00 AM.
