The University of the Fraser Valley men’s golf team finished in eighth place at the 2012 Ping CCAA National Championships in Oshawa, Ont. last week.
The Cascades shot combined scores of 310-307-309 over the course of the three-day event, held at the Oshawa Golf and Curling Club, for a total of 926. That left them 47 strokes behind the Humber College Hawks, who won the title with a score of 879. The Camosun Chargers (897) and the Durham College Lords (901) rounded out the podium finishers.
Darren Whitehouse was UFV’s top individual finisher – his three-day total of 228 was good for 19th overall. Mitch Lock finished 22nd at 229, while Aaron Pauls was 40th at 235.
PAULS EARNS ALL-CANADIAN NOD
Pauls was named a CCAA All-Canadian at the pre-tournament awards banquet, earning the honour for the second year in a row.
The fourth-year Cascade from Chilliwack was instrumental in helping UFV rally to win the PacWest championship this season. He was also the individual silver medalist during conference play, posting a four-tournament score of 583 to finish just five strokes shy of the gold medal.
