SILVER CITY, N.M. (GoThunderWolves.com - Sept. 13, 2010) - For the third straight round in 2010, CSU-Pueblo's women's golf team broke a single-round school record for lowest team score Monday, busting the 333 mark it set last weekend by six strokes at the first RMAC Women's Golf event of the season.
CSU-Pueblo found itself in third place out of eight teams after the first round of play, sitting 16 strokes behind leader, Western New Mexico, and seven behind second place, Mesa State. The Pack was holding a seven stroke lead over fourth-place team, Chadron State.
The Pack sank three players - all newcomers in 2010 - inside the top 20 after one round of play. A week after Michaela Breit (Fr., Greeley, Colo.) put up a 78 for the second-lowest individual round score in school history, another freshman, Tricia Vinci (Fr., Pueblo, Colo.) was nearly as good, shooting a 79 in the first round, the third-best in school history, tied at 7th. Breit was just behind at 80, in 10th place overall.
Also having a great round was Melissa Jo Smith (Jr., Phoenix, Ariz.), who rebounded from a down weekend in the season opener last week, where she shot an average of 89.5, to put up an 82 and finish the first round in 17th place.
CSU-Pueblo will get a shot at that elusive first ever tournament title Tuesday, when it tees off in the final round of the first RMAC golf event.
