WALLA WALLA, Wash. ?- The Arizona men's golf team finished third Wednesday, at the Pac-10 Championship after their final day of competition in Walla Walla, Wash.


The Wildcats shot an eight-over-par 1428 to trail Pac-10 champion Washington by three strokes at the end of the three-day tournament. The Huskies tied with Arizona State for first. The tie was broken by the result of a better cumulative six-man team score in the final round. UCLA shot 12-over-par 1432 to finish in fourth. Oregon (1436) rounded out the top five.


Individually, senior Nathan Lashley led the Wildcats, finishing in second place. The native of Scottsbluff, Neb., carded a seven-under-par 277 over the four rounds.


Joining Lashley in the Top 20 was sophomore Henry Liaw who shot 68 in Wednesday’s final round to finish the tournament tied for 14th (75-75-67-68=285) and freshman Travis Esway who tied for 19th (68-76-71-72=287).


 Senior Kipp Riehle carded a four-round total of 290 (+6) to tie for 28th. Freshman Trey Denton finished the tournament tied for 33rd (74-74-74-70=292) and sophomore Josh Esler tied for 50th with a 299 (+15).
