Sophomore Jolene Kam (Selangor Malaysia) ranked second on the Pack with an 82 (+10) in her 18 hole round. Kam will enter day two tied for 26th.
After receiving all-conference honors in 2015-16, Tori Goodman (So., Peyton, Colo.) and Jacquelyn Porman (Sr., Gilbert, Ariz.) both carded 83s (+11). They stand tied for 34th, but still rank ahead of more than half of the 78 student-athlete field.
The Pack collectively shot a +35 (323) in their first 18 holes of 2016-17. While the ThunderWolves sit seventh, only seven strokes separate the second and seventh place teams.
CSU-Pueblo and the rest of the 14 team field will tee off again Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. at the Pueblo Country Club. The Farmers Insurance Samuel Proal Invitational will be the Pack's only home tournament of the fall season.
