Cascade golfers fifth at nationals

The University of the Fraser Valley men's golf team earned a top five finish at the Canadian University/College Championship.

Chilliwack’s Aaron Pauls led his University of the Fraser Valley men’s golf team to a fifth place finish at nationals. The Canadian University/College Championship was held June 3-6 at the Southwood Golf and Country Club in Winnipeg.

Ranked No. 1 coming into the tournament, the Cascades ended up 45 shots over par over four rounds to finish 40 strokes behind the University of Manitoba Bisons.

The University of British Columbia Thunderbirds were second.

The Western University Mustangs (Ontario) were third and the University of Victoria Vikes were fourth.

Pauls was joined by teammates Darren Whitehouse (Langley), Connor O’Dell (Maple Ridge) and Simon Baker (Langley).

Individually, he tied for seventh overall with rounds of 71-74-73-74 (four over par). He birdied 12 holes, bogeyed 12 holes and double-bogeyed two.

Pauls and UFV golf coach Chris Bertram will both be travelling to Switzerland later this month for the 2014 World University Golf Championships.

Bertram will coach the Canadian women’s team while Pauls competes.
