Led by Sun Dance pro Chris Mitchell, four Inland Empire golfers survived the 36-hole cut to advance to today’s final round of the 1995 Ernst Washington Open golf tournament at Glendale Country Club in Bellevue.
Mitchell’s 1-under-par 70 Tuesday gave him a two-day total of 141, tied for fifth, five shots behind leader Jeff Gove of Seattle.
Mark Rohde of Valley View (70-145), Bob Scott of Liberty Lake (76-148) and David Christensen of Indian Canyon (73-148) also made the cut.
Megan Thrash of Community Colleges of Spokane was second at 166 and teammate Megan Field fifth at 178 as the Sasquatch placed second in the women’s division of the NWAACC golf championships at Canyon Lakes Golf Course in Kennewick.
Jennifer Stapleton of Tacoma was medalist with a 157. Lower Columbia was the team winner with a 518 ahead of CCS’ 545.
In the men’s division Jason Allen of CCS was fifth at 158 behind Jake Herron’s winning 153 that led host Columbia Basin to the team title at 622. CCS was seventh with 682.
