ThunderWolves place 7th at RMAC Championships

The Pack women's golf team held on to its 7th place standing during the second round of the RMAC Women's Golf Championship Tuesday, getting a pair of top 15 finishes in the process.

The Pack matched its all-time best individual round team score Tuesday, shooting a 338, matching the mark it set last week at the Augustana Invitational.  It marked the third time this season the ThunderWolves set individual round team score records.

Rachel Means (Fr., Penrose, Colo.) led the T-Wolves with an 11th place finish, besting her first-round output of 85 with a second-round 81.  Sawyer Bisel (Fr., Canon City, Colo.) also blew away her already impressive first-round 88 with a collegiate-best 79 in the second round, the 7th-best second-round score in the entire field.

CSU-Pueblo's 7th place finish closes out a season in which the ThunderWolves made drastic improvements from September through April.  Beginning the season as arguably the lowest-ranked team in the RMAC, the ThunderWolves made a statement to the rest of the RMAC that they are a team on the rise.  Of the ThunderWolves' top five golfers, two are freshmen (Means and Bisel) and three are sophomores.
