Pueblo improves prospects at Adams State
ALAMOSA, Colo. - Sparked by freshmen Ashleigh Rehl (Fr., Littleton, Colo.) and Meagan Chapman (Fr., Pueblo, Colo.), the ThunderWolves showed incredible signs of life, improving their second round score by more than ten strokes over their first round performance in a valiant fourth place finish at the Adams State Grizzly Invitational Tuesday.
The ThunderWolves, who struggled as a unit in 2007-08, bursted out of the gate with a positive step toward major improvement - all five Pack entrants into the invitational shot under 100, something that was only done in one individual round all last season.
In the second round, Pack golfers were even better, as each of the Pack's top three finishers, Rehl, Chapman and Callie Young (So., Wichita Falls, Tex.), cut three or more strokes off of their first round performance. Chapman cut seven strokes in the second round, shooting an 86, the 11th best second round showing in the field of 34. She finished tied for 16th place with Rehl at +37, 25 strokes behind the leader.
Of the three RMAC teams in the invitational - Regis, Adams State and CSU-Pueblo - Rehl, Chapman and Young each placed among the top 10.
