Colorado State’s Jarrod Roan had 223 through two days of singles action, earning him the individual national championship on Saturday at the National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships.

“It was a battle the whole time,” Roan said. “I played conservative and took my birdies when I could, and I stayed focused. The biggest thing was I putted great. That was key for me.”

The Rams used Roan and Austin Montgomery’s 113 to push their team lead to 13 strokes over second-place South Alabama going into the doubles round today. Colorado State entered the second day of singles action with a nine-stroke lead and only added to it as the day progressed. Its highest single-round score on Saturday was 61.

“We’re playing very well as a team,” Montgomery said. “We’ve come together strong this week. We’ll come back out tomorrow and just have fun, and stay calm and collected.”

Augusta State put together another consistent round, with five of its six counting rounds breaking 60. However, the Jaguars were unable to inch toward the Rams, actually losing three strokes from Friday.

Jason Lynn led the Jaguars with 107 for a total of 232, good for seventh individually over the two days. Andrew Cromer is at 233 and Patrick May has 235 for the Jaguars, both placing inside the top 10.

South Alabama’s Cameron Colglazier, who entered Saturday with the overall individual lead, shot 50-57-107 for a total of 224, finishing one stroke back of Roan.

After a team total of 373 on Friday, N.C. State rebounded with 341 to move up to fourth. Chase Jernigan led the Wolfpack with a 51-55-106.

The women’s champion was Sara Lamberson, of South Carolina, who shot a four-round total of 284 to win by 10 strokes.

I might as well be the spoil

I might as well be the spoil THIS economy, colleges are spending "education" dollars to send kids around the country to play with "frisbees" ???? It may be a sport, but what is the long term benefit of frisbee throwing in relation to a useful and productive career?

Scgator, I'm not sure where

Scgator, I'm not sure where you obtained your information and for some teams (or individuals) you may be right; but my son was part of the Colorado State team and in his case, he paid his own way, including his filght.

Playing any sport the

Playing any sport the individual will be standing in front, of a stage, on a field, but must contain the ability to preform under pressure. The are not only representing the school but themselves and must maintain a sportsmanship quality. The personality of the individual will be shown, to preform a task, under pressure, and that will bring into judgement, the ability to stay focused and your task at hand. Not to mention the ability to alter you play to the conditions that present themselves. And last, Keeping a positive attitude no matter how you play. This has a lot to do with the career choices that are made. To be challenged and pushed, constantly questioning the right decisions, and then believing in them. And disc golf is mostly known as an intramural activity, so most, if not ALL of the funding comes from the individual or from sponsors. If you think it is so easy, try it, you may be the unknown pro.
