PUEBLO WEST, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Sept. 7, 2013) - CSU-Pueblo was in game shape right away to start 2013, nearly breaking a school record for lowest individual round team score as it sits in first place after one round at the RMAC #1 in Pueblo West.
The ThunderWolves shot a 17-over-par 305, just one stroke off its school record of 304 set last season. The Pack did so by riding a career-best round from Michaela Breit (Sr., Greeley, Colo.), who shot an even-par 72 to finish the round tied for second, but first among RMAC entrants. Her round also set a school record for lowest individual round.
Not far behind, Leina Kim (So., Saipan, CNMI) equaled her career-best with a 1-over-par 73 to finish the round in a fourth-place tie. The Pack's entrants in the top ten was rounded out by Julie Sanchez (Jr., Pueblo, Colo.), who shot 6-over-par to sit in 10th.
After the first round, CSU-Pueblo holds a one-stroke lead over West Texas A&M and a 13-stroke lead over its closest RMAC rival, Adams State.
"This year, I gave them a goal to break 300 as a team," CSU-Pueblo head coach Josh Koschke said. "That is where they need to be to get to the next level, and they did a good job moving toward that today. There are a lot of good teams in the field here that went to Super Regionals last year, and if we can continue to beat them, that would be huge for our head-to-head standings come Spring."
The second and final round concludes Sunday.
