Cascade golfer to represent Canada

Chilliwack's Aaron Pauls will tee off in the Swiss Alps when the World University Golf Championships start in late June.

Chilliwack’s Aaron Pauls will represent the University of the Fraser Valley and his country when the 2014 World University Golf Championships tee off in Crans-Montana, Switzerland.

Pauls, a fifth-year member of UFV’s top-ranked men’s team, is one of 11 varsity athletes (six men and five women) selected to Team Canada. Pauls finished last season with the third-best cumulative score in the PACWEST, and placed second overall at CCAA nationals.

He is the first Cascade in the school’s history to be appointed to the national team, and he won’t make the trip alone.

His UFV coach, Chris Bertram is heading overseas to guide the women. During nine years coaching the Cascades, Bertram’s teams have never missed a CCAA (Canadian Colleges Athletic Association) podium spot, are five-time PACWest champs, two-time national champs and have won 13 of the last 16 events they’ve competed in.

He’s a three-time PACWest coach of the year and the 2013 CCAA coach of the year.

The tournament runs June 23-27 on the picturesque Crans-sur-Sierre course, located in the heart of the Swiss Alps.

This is the tourney’s 15th year.
