Chilliwack’s Pauls leads Cascade golfers

UFV Cascades, golf

The University of the Fraser Valley Cascades men’s golf team won the first 2011 PACWest regular season tournament, taking a six stroke win over Camosun College.

UFV’s crew recorded a two day score of 574 at The Dunes at Kamloops, home of the Thompson Rivers University Wolf Pack.

The Cascades were led by veteran Aaron Pauls, a Chilliwack native, who carded a two day score of 140, good for second overall on the weekend.

Mission’s Mitch Lock found his way into the PACWest top 10, finishing third with a two day total of 144.

Langley’s Darren Whitehouse placed sixth with a score of 145.

47 golfers from eight teams participated in the tournament, hosted by TRU.

The Cascades travel to the Okanagan this weekend to participate in PACWest tournament number two, hosted by the University of British Columbia-Okanagan at the Okanagan Golf Resort in Kelowna.

 

— Pauls was named one of two University of the Fraser Valley athletes of the week after a stellar performance at the first PACWest golf tournament of the year. Pauls, a third year Kinesiology major, shot an impressive 140 at the two day tournament in Kamloops last weekend, propelling the Cascade men to a six-stroke first place finish ahead of second place Camosun College. Pauls sits second overall in the PACWest individual standings, one stroke behind the leader. Women’s soccer player Chelsea Steffen (Abbotsford) was the second UFV athlete of the week.
