TUCSON, Ariz.-The Arizona men's golf team shot a 577 (+1) on the first day of competition at the Wolf Pack Classic.

 

Arizona, which finished the first round in third place in the thirteen team field, shot a 291 (+3) in the second round to fall to sixth. The Cats were led by John Kostis and Rich Saferian, who, at one under par, are tied for 10th. Kostis is looking for his first career top 10 finish. Jonathan Khan joined the two in the top 20. The junior is even for the tournament and in a tie for 15th.

 

Nevada and Wichita State are tied for the lead at 567 (-9). Wichita State was led by Dustin Garza, who used back-to-back 67's to take the lead into the clubhouse at 10 under. Nevada's Ryan Hallisey is not too far behind, however. The Wolf Pack golfer carded a 137 (-7) on the first day, and is in second place.

 

Not in the top twenty is Tarquin MacManus, who has finished in the top twenty in four of his last five tournaments, shot par on the first eighteen holes, but shot a 75 on the second eighteen. Despite being tied for 31st, MacManus sits only two shots back from breaking into the top twenty.

 

The third and final round will be held tomorrow. The Wolf Pack Classic is contested at the Wolf Run Golf Club, a par 72, 7,100 yard course.
