Whitworth University swept both the men’s and women’s divisions at the Northwest Conference North Classic golf tournaments Monday at Oakbrook Country Club in Tacoma.
With Cameron Whittle (10-over 152) and Jared Descoteaux (153) finishing third and fourth, and four of their teammates among the top 15, the Pirates men fashioned a 610 over 36 holes for a 13-stroke victory over Puget Sound, in the tournament involving the conference’s four Washington schools. Brian Barton of Whitman was medalist with a 7-over 149.
Whittle’s closing 2-under was low score of the final day and one of only two sub-par rounds in the tournament.
Emily Travis shared women’s medalist honors for the Pirates with a 171 and teammates finished third, fourth and tied for fifth as Whitworth had a 19-stroke victory over Puget Sound, 696-715. Taylor Head of Whitman was co-medalist.

•Idaho senior outside hitter Sarah Conwell is the WAC player of the week for the second time this season after a weekend in which she had 39 kills, 37 digs and six blocks as the Vandals split two matches.
