DARKNESS SETS ON MAV GOLFERS
Sept. 28, 2005
RENO, Nevada - Sophomore Zack Reeves (Arlington, Texas) raced out to a five-under-par score with one hold remaining in his second round of golf Tuesday before darkness halted play at the 2005 Nevada Wolf Pack Invitational here.
UTA stands in a tie for ninth place with Colorado State after round one. UTA stands at three-over-par 291, 17 strokes behind leader Denver (274). Arkansas is second (282) followed by UC-Santa Barbara (285). Nevada, San Diego and Sacramento State are fourth at 286 and Texas-El Paso and New Mexico State is tied for seventh at 287. The completion of round two and the third round are scheduled Wednesday.
Reeves had an opening round of one-under-par 71 on the 6,937-yard course. Senior Tyrone Mordt (Johannesburg, South Africa) shot an opening round 75, but regrouped to stand at even-par on opening day with a par-5 hole to play on his second round.
Sophomore Michael Douthit (Palestine, Texas) shot a career-best 68 as a medalist and is tied for sixth.
"We left a couple of shots out there today, but we are going to come out tomorrow and try and get better," said UTA Golf Coach Jay Rees. "I thought even par would be a good score today, but there were a couple of golfers who posted some low numbers."
