Cal State Dominguez Hills captured the PGA Minority Collegiate Division II National Championship when stormy weather canceled the final round at PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

The Toros posted a winning score of 306-305–611, followed by Texas A&M International at 312-300–612, Livingstone College at 308-320–628, Lincoln University at 319-320–639 and Fayetteville State at 317-330–647.

“It is tremendous to have our four seniors finish their Toro careers with a National Championship,” Coach Ron Eastman of Cal State Dominguez Hills said.

“They battled yesterday to stay in front and held off a hard-charging Texas A&M team. Bret Gleason made a 30-foot birdie putt on 18 to give us the lead, and we are all very proud to represent Cal State Dominguez Hills in a national venue.”

Steven Martinez of Texas A&M International shot 75-71–146, 2-over-par, and tied for the individual national title with Blake Lammers of Lincoln, who finished at 71-75–146, with Phillip Harrison of Livingston coming in third at 71-77–148.

Gleason, a senior from Edwards Air Force Base, led the Toros’ five-man lineup in solo fifth at 76-74–150, while Ryan Saldana tied for sixth at 78-73–151, Brantly Blew was 12th at 80 -77 –157, and Cameron MacDonald shot 75 -83 –158  to tie for 13th with Shane Kowal, who came in at 77 -81 –158.
