Spartans Set Sights On U.S. Intercollegiate

San Jose State men's golf is quickly back in action playing their second tournament of the week at 2012 U.S. Intercollegiate hosted by Stanford on March 30-April 1.

The Spartans are looking ahead to the U.S. Intercollegiate after finishing in sixth place out of 14 at the Duck Invitational on March 26-28.

Nationally-ranked Washington (5), UCLA (6), Southern California (8), San Diego State (9), Oregon (12) and host Stanford (13) will join the Spartans on the 6,727-yard Par 70 Stanford Golf Course.  Also competing: Colorado, Fresno State, Nevada, Oregon State, Pepperdine, San Francisco, UC Davis, Utah and Washington State.

"We're looking forward to playing again soon and we'll just have to see what happens when we get out there," said head coach John Kennaday in his seventh season.

Senior Jay Myers heads the Spartan lineup which also includes Matthew Hovan, Justin Estrada, Daniel Semmler and Christopher Lang.

San Jose State was the 1976 U.S. Intercollegiate champion under legendary head coach Jerry Vroom. The Spartans also had an individual champ in Mark Lye one year earlier in the 1975 U.S. Intercollegiate.
