Anguiano, Tetrault Pace Titans to First Place After Day One
CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. -- Cal State Fullerton senior Mark Anguiano fired a tournament single-round record and team low 66 (-6) on Monday, helping the host Titans improve two strokes on the second round from the first to land in first place (572, -4) after 36 holes at the 2014 Folino Invitational at the Industry Hills Golf Club.
