• Washington junior golfer Chris Williams has been named the Pac-12 Men’s Golfer of the Month for March.

Williams, from Moscow, Idaho, finished first at the Bandon Dunes Championship with a 9-under par 204 (71-67-66) to lead Washington to a tie for first in the team race. He finished six shots better than runner up Kevin Lim of Long Beach State in recording his fifth victory of his UW career, and moved him past former All-Americans Brock Mackenzie and Nick Taylor in the Husky record book. His 66 on the final round broke the course record of 67 he established earlier in the championship.

At the Stanford U.S. Intercollegiate, Williams finished in a tie for 12th after he fired a pair of rounds in the 60s and posted a 3-over par 213 (68-77-68).

• En route to his first collegiate win, senior Andrew Vijarro capped an impressive two-day run to win his first collegiate tourney in the Oregon Duck Invitational at the Eugene Country Club. The Bend, Ore., native shot a three-under final round to win the event by one stroke with his six-under three-round tally (71-70-69-210) over senior teammate Eugene Wong (second, 69-69-73-211).

Another Duck senior, Daniel Miernicki, followed another stroke back (third, 71-69-72-212) to cement a 1-2-3 sweep for the No. 14 Ducks.

Team-wise on the par 72, 7,007-yard course, UO held off Long Beach State to win by two strokes with its 17-under team score (284-279-284-847) over the 49ers (second, 280-284-285-849).

Oregon State finished fourth.
