anthonyallenThirty-six holes into the 43rd annual Viking Invitational at Bellingham Golf & Country Club and the home team is in fourth place, 18 shots behind runaway leader British Columbia.
The Thunderbirds played impressive golf all day Monday shooting an eight-under 280 in the morning and a 15-under 273 in the afternoon. The Vikings, who got their season off to a fantastic start at the weekend winning the St. Martin's Invitational at Olympis Country Club, shot 282 and 289 meanwhile, with sophomore Anthony Allen (right) who tied for individual honors at St. Martin's and who was named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference (GNAC) player of the Week, leading the team on four-under 140.
“Once again, Anthony played rock solid,” said Vikings coach Luke Bennett. “He just isn’t making any mistakes.”
Second in the team standings is CSU-Stanislaus on 565, with Simon Fraser University  third on 567.
WWU’s Kyle Schrader is tied for 15th on 143 (68-75), Mark Strickland is tied for 18th on 144 (71-73), Brennan Emory is T22 on 145 (73-72), and Chris Hatch had a disappointing day shooting 72, 78 to finish 36 holes on 150 and tied for 44th.
Sophomore Kyle Lindor leads the Western 'B' Team and is tied ninth in the tournament on two-under 142.
Atop the individual leaderboard is British Columbia's Evan Holmes with whom Allen shared individual honors in Olympia. He sits alone on 10-under 134 with teammate Conner Kozak a shot behind.
“There was some good play today,” said Bennett. “The conditions were very good and you could definitely score today and UBC certainly did. All of our guys battled. I’m hoping we can bounce back and make a few more putts tomorrow.”
