Men's finish Ninth

The Wolfpack Invitational, held at the Legends Course at Arrowcreek Country Club in Nevada, ended Wednesday with the Rams tied for ninth place out of 18 competing teams.

The Rams greatest accomplishment came in the form of freshman Zen Brown, who had a breakout performance. Brown shot a personal 1-over-par, 217 over three rounds and finished No. 25 overall.

Derrick Whitney finished a stroke behind at 218.

The host of the tournament, the Nevada Wolfpack, pleased the home crowd with a first- place finish, posting a total score of 852. CSU's final team score was 871.

The Rams will get the next two weeks off before competing in the Fresno State Lexus Golf Classic on Oct. 14. The Rams took sixth place in that tournament last year.


Women's finish Fourteenth

The women's golf team finished fourteenth overall with a score of 918 at the Dick McGuire Invitational at the University of New Mexico Championship course in Albuquerque, N.M. Wednesday.

Pepperdine University finished 45 strokes ahead of the lady Rams with a final score of 873.

Although the Rams won't be bringing home any trophies, the young team should benefit from the experience.

"This tournament was a good learning experience for the whole team," said head coach Angie Hopkins in a CSUrams.com release.

Sophomore Chelsea Benton led the team with an individual score of 222, and tied for 21st place overall.

Amber Ward and Megan Chapman finished second and third on the team, with scores of 231 and 232, respectively.

The team will get a short rest to work some kinks out before competing at the CU Memorial Tournament on Oct. 3.
