           "Jay played a real gutsy tournament under very difficult conditions. It was windy and cold and the conditions took a bit out of everyone. He stuck to his game plan despie the conditions," said San Jose State coach John Kennaday. "His game is coming around again. He and Rosco (Valentine) and Mark (Hubbard) have been working very hard and, for Jay, the results are showing up."
