Bruins and Lucas Lee Win CS Bakersfield Spring Invitational

Feb. 27, 2007

UCLA sophomore Lucas Lee led the UCLA Blue Team to the Cal State Bakersfield Invitational team title Tuesday, and tied a UCLA individual record to par in the process.

Lee fired rounds of 65-67-70--202 (-14) and won medalist honors by four shots. His 54-hole score of 14-under par tied the school record set by Duffy Waldorf (1985) and Jay Delsing (1981). Waldorf was 14-under on a par 71 course; Delsing set his mark on a par 72 layout. Lee's victory was the third of his collegiate career.

The Bruins' team victory was the second straight for the Blue Team, which won last week at the Cougar Invitational, hosted by Cal State San Marcos. At Bakersfield, UCLA's three-round total of 839 was 25-under par and won by 28 strokes over Cal State Bakersfield (867, +3). Sonoma State was third at 871 (+7) and Grand Canyon and Sacramento State tied for fourth at 872 (+8).

In other individual results for the Bruins, junior Craig Leslie placed sixth at five-under par 211 and senior Chris Heintz, who won the Cougar Invitational title last week, tied for seventh at four-under 212. Freshman Charlie Harris tied for 15th at 217 (+1), followed by Jason Kang, who tied for 22nd at 219 (+3). Playing as an individual, junior Brandon Christianson tied for 32nd at 222 (+6).

Next week, the Blue Team will participate in the Braveheart Classic, hosted by UC Riverside at Oak Valley GC.
