After two days of enduring harsh weather conditions in Reno, Nev., the UCSB men’s golf team finished sixth at the 28th Annual Wolf Pack Classic, which took place at the Wolf Run Golf Club on Oct. 18-19.
Led by sophomore Joe Ryon and junior Greg Wells, the Gauchos finished with a team score of 284 on Monday and 296 on Tuesday. The final score was four over par-576.
“We were right by the lead,” Wells said. “We just fell back in the second round and ended up in sixth so we were a little disappointed.”
On day one, Santa Barbara averaged four under par, but faltered on day two, averaging a score of eight over par.
“We definitely should have played better,” Ryon said.
The third round of the tournament, scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, was cancelled due to poor weather.
“It was brutal up there. It never got over fifty degrees,” Ryon said. “The golf part wasn’t that much fun.”
Individually, Ryon finished first for UCSB and 16th overall, swinging one under par-72
“I am definitely proud of myself,” Ryon said. “I met my first under-par round in college golf.”
Behind Ryon was Wells, who finished at a close 19th overall at an even par.
The Gauchos play next at the Barona Collegiate Cup on Oct. 25.
