    FAIRFAX, Calif. -- For the second straight year, Northwestern finished as the tourney runner-up at the Alister MacKenzie Invitational, held at the par-71, 6,583-yard Meadow Club golf course. Four Wildcat players, led by sophomore Bryson Young (Reno, Nev./Galena), finished among the tourney's top-15 performers.

    Although the Wildcats finished in a second-place tie with fourth-ranked UCLA, the disappointment came in the fact that Northwestern held an eight-stroke advantage over the Bruins heading into the final round. NU owned a 14-stroke lead over California, the host school, which came back to edge the Wildcats by two strokes for the team championship.

    Still, the Wildcats, ranked 49th in the latest Golfweek/Sagarin poll, turned in their best effort of the young season, finishing ahead of 31st-ranked Illinois and 51st-ranked Purdue. California is ranked 14th in the same poll.

    Young turned in the top performance of his young career, posting a personal-best 7-under 206 (69-67-70) to finish in a second-place tie with Illinois' Joe Affrunti and Cal's Scott Carlyle. UCLA's Steve Conway won the tournament with a 13-under 200 (67-65-68).

    Senior Tom Johnson (Sacramento, Calif./Del Campo) placed fifth with a 6-under 207 (68-67-72). Seniors Casey Strunk (Phoenix, Ariz./Thunderbird) and T.C. Ford (Covington, La./Mandeville) followed right behind Johnson with respective ninth- and 15th-place finishes. Strunk closed at 3-under (68-69-73=210) while Ford was 1-under (67-71-74=212).

    Sophomore Dillon Dougherty (Woodland, Calif./Woodland) placed 53rd with an 8-over 221 (72-71-78).
