British Columbia’s Emily Leung & Chris Crisologo capture NCAA titles
Emily Leung and Chris Crisologo—both British Columbia natives and students at Simon Fraser University—captured their respective NCAA Division II individual titles on Tuesday at the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Championship.
Leung (Richmond) carded a tournament-low 70 to open the tournament with a comfortable lead, eventually leading to a six stroke victory over teammate Kylie Jack. The Simon Fraser University Clan also defended the women’s team title, winning by a margin of 19 strokes at Idaho’s Coeur d’Alene Resort Golf Course.
On the men’s side, Crisologo (Richmond) closed with an even-par 71 to finish at 5-under par (70-67-71), hanging on for a two-stroke victory over Western Washington’s Chris Hatch. The win marks Crisologo’s first individual victory in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.
