Novak shoots lowest round to help ThunderWolves move up in team standings.
ALAMOSA, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Sept. 7, 2011) - Wanting to make a move in the team standings on the final day in the Adams State Grizzly Invitational on the Cattails Golf Course in Alamosa, Colo., Colorado State University-Pueblo senior Chad Novak (Sr., Pueblo, Colo.) led the charge by posting the tournaments lowest round, shooting a 67 on this par 71 course.
Novak's round of 4 under and improving to 5-over-par, paired with steady play from his CSU-Pueblo teammates, enabled the Pack to move up to 4th, edging UC-Colorado Springs and Nebraska-Kearney. The squad shot 6 strokes better than they had on their previous two rounds.
The ThunderWolves finished with a team score of 872, 17 strokes back from winner Colorado School of Mines.
The rest of the Pack players', all within one stroke of each other, finished well. Sean Thomas (Sr., Arvada, Colo.) finished at 5-over-par, James Berry (Jr., Traverse City, Mich.) 6-over-par, Bryan Kruse (Sr., Westminster, Colo.) 7-over-par, and Jonathan Park (So., Denver, Colo.) at 9-over-par.
