Oct. 19, 2004
LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The third and final round of the 28th Annual Wolf Pack Classic was canceled Tuesday morning due to windy and rainy conditions in Reno, Nevada. Unable to improve their Day One finish, the University of Wyoming Cowboy golfers finish the tournament in 16th place of 18 teams with a score of 610.
"We completed 11 holes and were playing well today," said UW head coach Joe Jensen. "I'm disappointed and it's tough on the kids that they didn't get to finish.
"Monday was just one of those bad days and we wanted to get rid of that feeling. We are a much better team than the way we played Monday."
Lamar University earned the team title with a 36-hole total of 12-under par 564, Oregon State finished in second at 5-under 571 and Nevada, the host institution, finished third at 2-under par 574.
UW sophomore Jeff Franks, Steamboat Springs, Colo., had the lowest total for UW and tied for 43rd place individually of 90 golfers. Franks shot rounds of 74 and 75 to finish at five-over-par.
Senior Dan Silva posted an second round of 72, which brought him into a tie for 50th after an opening round of 78. Junior Niel King scored 80 and 76, freshman David Stewart shot 77 and 80, while junior Eric Baily had a 78 and 80.
Charlie Soule (Denver), Dawie VanDerWalt (Lamar) and Ryan Gilmour (Oregon State) shared low medalist honors finishing with a 36-hole total score of 5-under par 139.
Each team played five golfers and counted the four best scores.
The 28th Annual Wolfpack Classic was played at the Wolf Run Golf Club in Reno. The Wolf Run plays to a par of 72 and measures 7,100 yards.
Notes: UW senior Matthew Brunk is out for the remainder of the fall season with an injured wrist and did not make the trip.
