Facing a field that featured 12 ranked teams, it was a tough task for the Western New Mexico University women’s golf team, but they did their best as they finished just a few shots back of No. 46 Angelo State. The Lady Mustangs ended up 15th as a team after the second and final round of the Rattler Invitational wrapped up Tuesday at the par 72, 5,976 yard Dominion Country Club Course.

 WNMU carded rounds of 338-341 for a 679 to land two-strokes back of No. 46 Angelo State. No. 3 Dallas Baptist won the 17-team field with a 590, 18-strokes ahead of the pack. St. Edward’s Johany Rivera took home the individual title with a 144 to beat the field by two-shots.

Sophomore Brenda Dominguez and junior Shelby Turner helped lead the way for the Lady Mustangs as they finished three-strokes apart. Dominguez carded rounds of 80-81 for a 161 to tie for 37th. She utilized three birdies during her final round. Turner sunk a pair of birdies on Tuesday as she compiled scores of 83 and 81 for a 164 to tie for 45th.

Senior Samantha Hernandez carded rounds of 86 and 91 for a 177 to tie for 71st. Sophomore Julia Enriquez had similar rounds each day of 89 and 88 for a 177 to also tie for 71st. Freshman Lexi Lucero rounded out the five for the Lady Mustangs as she fired a 188 after rounds of 95 and 93 to come in 82nd.

As a team, the Lady Mustangs shot 3.65 in par-three, 4.88 in par-four and 5.83 in par-five. They recorded 61 pars and 10 birdies.

WNMU will travel back to Texas next week when they will participate in the St. Edward’s Invitational hosted by St. Edward’s Feb. 19-20.
