Cal Baptist, Lampson sweep NCAA D2 Regional

Trevor Lampson of California Baptist captured the individual title and led the Lancers to their first post-season tournament victory in school history, the NCAA Division II West/South Central Regional at Brookside Country Club in Stockton.

Cal Baptist, located in Riverside, posted a school-record score of 274-273-287–834, 30-under-par, with Stanislaus State second at 289-273-283–845, while Cal State East Bay totaled 278-283-286–847 to tie for third Western Washington, which finished at 282-278-287–847.

The Lancers, who claimed their fourth victory of the season, set the previous record of 848 while finishing second to BYU-Hawaii recently in the Pac West Championships.

“Any time you win a region championship it’s very special; it’s very hard to win a region championship,” Coach TL Brown of Cal Baptist said. “I am really proud of the team effort we had from all five guys. We are just blessed to have an opportunity to compete and we give the glory to God.

“I felt our preparation coming in was really solid. We felt after not winning the conference championship we had a chip on our shoulder a little bit. I really think we came out gunning for this golf course. I am really proud of how we responded, off the tee box and with our wedges we were great this week.

“I told the team the motivation to win the region is to get seeded with some really good teams at nationals, and that’s what we want.”

The NCAA Division II Championships will be played May 22-26 at Reunion Resort in Kissimmee, Fla.

Cal State Monterey Bay was fifth at 282-286-280–848, followed by Chico State at 285-288-277–850 and Sonoma State at 274-289-293–856.

Midwestern State posted a score of 277-283-298–858 to tie for eighth with Colorado-Colorado Springs, which totaled 293-278-287–858, while Dixie State University wound up at 282-281-296–859 to tie for 10th with Colorado State-Pueblo, which came in at 283-286-290–859.

Holy Names of Oakland finished 19th at 286-291-296–873.

Lampson, a Cal Baptist freshman from Gilbert, Ariz., earned his third victory of the season with a score of 62-69-70–201, 15-under, setting new school records for 18, 36 and 54 holes.

“Trevor was taking some really aggressive lines off the tee, and his driver was really special this week,” Brown said. “When other guys were hitting approach shots, he was ripping it over bunkers. His putter was solid in round one, that 62 was really special. He was really in the zone, so we let him do his thing.”
