RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. - UC Irvine captured both the men's and women's titles to conclude the 2007 Big West Golf Championships at Tijeras Creek Golf Club Tuesday. The Anteater men garnered their fourth championship in seven seasons while the women won for the third consecutive year.

After taking a 22 shot lead through two rounds, the UCI men staved off a furious challenge from defending champion Cal Poly. UCI matched its second round total of 290 to finish at 12-under 852 for the tournament. Four Anteaters finished in the individual top 10, led by freshman John Chin's 5-under 211. Senior Brian Edick tied for sixth at 2-under 214 after firing a third round 71. Senior Jay Choe and sophomore Tim Cha finished ninth and 10th at 216 and 217, respectively.

The Mustangs, which began the day in third place with a 24 stroke deficit, mounted a huge charge as all five golfers shot under par. Cal Poly shot 19-under par to set a single round record of 269, rallying within three strokes of the Anteaters. The Mustangs finished at 9-under 855 after shooting 289 and 297 the first two rounds.

Cal Poly junior Colin Peck shot 70-69-70 to come in second overall at 7-under 209. Freshman Geoff Gonzalez carded the low round of the day, a 65 that thrust him into a tie for fourth place at 3-under 213. Two other Mustangs shot extremely low with 67s from juniors Dave Lewinski and Brycen Wagner. Lewinski went 74-76 and Wagner 74-78 in the first two rounds.

The individual men's champion was senior Brett Lederer from Long Beach State. He was only one of two golfers (the other Cal Poly's Colin Peck) to shoot all three rounds under par, carding a 65-70-69 for a 12-under 204. He is the second straight 49er and third in the last four years to capture medalist honors at the Big West Championship.

Pacific finished in third place (871), UC Riverside fourth (877), Long Beach State fifth (878), Cal State Northridge sixth (879) and UC Santa Barbara seventh (888).

The UC Irvine women won by 28 strokes in clinching their third straight championship. The Anteaters posted a three round total of 28-over 892, outdistancing second place Long Beach State (920). After shooting a course record 66 in the second round Monday, freshman Patty Chawalitmetha carded a final round 77 to slip from first to second overall. She shot even par 216 for the tournament. Last year's individual champion, junior Selanee' Henderson, finished in third place with rounds of 72-73-73 for 2-over 218. Junior Kim Lorenzana gave the Anteaters their third top five finisher as she posted a 13-over 229 (76-76-77).

Junior Kay Hoey, who was named the Big West Women's Golfer of the Year at the awards ceremony, earned medalist honors with a 1-under 215 (71-73-71). Her 71 was the lowest round on Tuesday. Senior Beth Holtermann came in sixth at 14-over 230 and freshman Brenda Chhour was eighth at 16-over 232.

UC Riverside finished in third place (938), Cal State Northridge was fourth (942) and Cal Poly was fifth (952).

In addition to Hoey being named Golfer of the Year, other top awards included Julie Brooks earning Big West Women's Coach of the Year honors and Chawalitmetha the Freshman of the Year award. UCI swept all of the men's awards as Brian Edick was selected Big West Men's Golfer of the Year, Paul Smolinski Men's Coach of the Year and John Chin Freshman of the Year.
