Men's Golf finishes strong at RMAC Championship
LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. -(GoThunderWolves.com-April 17, 2012)- Eighteen more holes didn't decide a thing for the CSU-Pueblo's Men's Golf team at the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Championship. Starting the day already in fourth place after 36 holes, the Pack was unable to move up but maintained their position with steady play and finish tied in the fourth place position.
The RMAC crowned Colorado School of Mines as the 2012 Champions. The Orediggers took a comanding lead over the entire field early and cruised to a team total 900, a winning margin of 15 strokes. Finishing ahead of the ThunderWolves in a tie at second was Kearney-Nebraska and Western New Mexico, who shot a team total 915. Joining the Pack at 922 and fourth place was UC-Colorado Springs.
Top placer for the Pack was James Berry (Jr., Traverse City, Mich.) who finished twelfth. Berry shot the team low 229 or 13-over-par after 52 holes. Scott Wyers (Sr., San Diego, Calif.) cracked the top 20 when he completed his rounds at 17-over-par, 233, to place tied for eighteenth. Sitting in a tie at the 20th spot is Ricco Tapia (Jr., Raton, N.M.) with his 18-over-par, 234.
The ThunderWolves will get a chance to play in the NCAA West/Central Super Regional May 6-8, which is being held right back here on the Wigwam (Gold) Golf Course. The Pack is currently ranked third in the Central Region and should be assured a spot in the field.
