(April 24, 2017) - The Colorado State University-Pueblo women's golf team leads the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Championships after round one Monday at the Ocotillo Golf Resort in Chandler Arizona. The Pack have three student-athletes in the top 10, guided by senior Jacquelyn Porman (Gilbert, Ariz.), who leads the tournament.

The ThunderWolves shot a 24-over 312 to hold a one-stroke lead on No. 37 Regis University. Tee times for the final 18 holes of the RMAC Championship are slated for Tuesday beginning at 8 a.m. MST.

Practically playing in her own backyard, Porman posted a one-under 71 behind four birdies and three bogeys. Three of those birdies came on the back nine where she shot a 35 (-1). She owns a four-stroke lead on second place.

Sophomore Jolene Kam (Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia) carded a 77 to sit five over and tied for fourth in the field of 59 golfers. She had two birdies on the day and didn't mark a score larger than a bogey.

Sophomore Courtney Ewing (Pueblo West, Colo.) finished with a six-over 78 to rank tied for seventh after 18 holes. She had four birdies on the day, but a couple crooked numbers on the back nine hindered her from scoring lower.

Freshman Gabby Segura (Kingwood, Texas) was the final player to score with an 86 (+14) that ranks tied for 28th.
