Means paces Pack at home course
CSU-Pueblo freshman Rachel Means (Fr., Florence, Colo.) led the ThunderWolves at the 2009 ThunderWolf Invitational at Pueblo's Walking Stick Golf Course Monday and Tuesday, shooting a +32 176 as the Pack team had a down tournament.
The tournament was marred by rain on its first day, postponed for five hours as torrential downpours battered Pueblo before restarting the round at 4 p.m. Approximately nine holes were played before play was called near 11 a.m. The conditions were very wet when play resumed and the conditions were certainly a factor.
In the RMAC's second tournament of the season, Means' 85 in the first round during the dreary conditions was offset by a +19 91 in the second-round in largely clear conditions, dropping her from 6th place after one round to 20th by the conclusion of the tournament.
The conditions got to many golfers, as nine out of the field of 50 shot over 100 in the first round. By contrast, 30 golfers shot sub-90 in the second round, compared to just 18 with similar scores in the first round.
The team championship was won by Mesa State and the individual title was on by Adams State's Kendall Martin. CSU-Pueblo finished 10th.
