The Chadron State College golf team was sixth at Sunday’s two-round Pack Classic, hosted by CSU-Pueblo at Walking Stick Golf Course.

The Eagles tied their all-time 36-round team score of 625, set at Goodyear, Arizona, last year, while placing in the top half of 15 teams, as well as the top 4 of 11 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference teams, in Pueblo.

“It was a long day, playing all 36.” said CSC Head Golf Coach John Ritzen. “The ladies did an amazing job of staying positive and focused. It was exciting to see Jordan keep her good play going, from her top three finish in Las Vegas. Hopefully, we can continue to improve and play with the best teams in the RMAC, going forward.”

CSC stroked 309 in its first 18 holes, which is No. 2 all-time for the program. The team played another 18 in the afternoon, coming away with another top-five round score for the program, at 316 strokes.

Junior Jordan Grasis led the team in its tournament scorers. She was tied for seventh in the event, at the end of 36 holes, with a score of 152, which was the third-best all-time tournament score for an individual at CSC.

Grasis was two strokes from the 36-hole individual school record with a 77-75-152.

Alpine Hickstein and Brooke Kramer tied for the Eagles at a two-round score of 156, which ranked 22nd at the event.

Chadron State plays one more event, in Rapid City, South Dakota on April 4-5, when the Eagles enter the Hardrocker Spring Invitational, before the RMAC Championships April 17-19.
