TURLOCK — The Cal State Stanislaus golf team makes it a point nearly every year to win its own Jim Hanny Invitational.
The Warriors did it again Tuesday despite blustery wind at Turlock Country Club.
The scores rose but Stanislaus finished with a 54-hole total of 24-over-par 288, two strokes better than a surging Cal State Monterey Bay in the 16-team field.
The win, Stanislaus' fourth of the season, is Stanislaus' 26th in the 40-year history of the tournament, named for the Warriors' late and great coach. They've won their tournament 15 out of the last 18 times.
Stanislaus freshman Trevor Clayton closed with a 4-over 76 and, with a total of 2-under 214, was the only player in the field to finish under par. His closest pursuer was Mark Strickland of Western Washington (220).
The Warriors' Paul Smith and Tyler Barker both had 80 to finish the tournament. Smith tied for third individually and Barker tied for sixth.
MJC's 10-INNING WIN Patrick Mulry's RBI single in the 10th was the difference as Modesto Junior College emerged with a windy 6-5 Big 8 Conference win at Cosumnes River. Relief pitcher Don Fairchilds gave up a leadoff double in the 10th but retired the last three Hawks to end it.
The Pirates (15-15, 8-11) rallied from a 3-1 deficit to beat Cosumnes (12-18, 6-13). Jesse Foster drove in two runs.
PIRATES 5TH Ryan Jones shot 76 at Ione's Castle Oaks to lead the Pirates to a fifth-place finish in their ninth Big 8 tournament.
MJC WINS Roxy Corella allowed only two hits and led the Pirates (9-27, 3-15 Big 8) to a 3-1 win at Diablo Valley (6-28, 2-16). Corella, Mady Adams and Katie Carpenter had two hits apiece for Modesto.
