Pack remains steady, finishes 6th
Pack is solid from one through five, rises again in final standings.
EDMOND, Okla (GoThunderWolves.com - Apr. 5, 2011) - A day after cutting 16 strokes from its team total to rise two spots in the ultra-competitve, 19-team Central Oklahoma Kickingbird Classic, CSU-Pueblo again turned in a solid round, shooting a team 299 and climbing to a sixth place finish.
The ThunderWolves were in elite company, only 23 strokes behind the third-ranked team in the country, Abilene Christian, which finished second. The Pack also languished behind another highly-ranked team, tournament champion and host, fifth-ranked Central Oklahoma.
Despite a third-round drop off from individual leader Sean Thomas (Jr., Westminster, Colo.), who shot a 77 to drop from 8th to 25th place, the Pack's starting four made up for it.
James Berry (Jr., Traverse City, Mich.) shot one of the best rounds in the entire field Tuesday, shooting a 72 on the very tough par-70 course. Bryan Kruse (Jr., Westminster, Colo.) shot a 74 a day after shooting a second-round 72, as well.
CSU-Pueblo will look to build on their performance for their home tournament next week, the DQ Wolf Pack Invitational, which takes place at the Walking Stick Golf Course in Pueblo next Monday and Tuesday.
