WNMU women's golf completed their season opening tournament by finishing 10th at the Farmers Insurance Samuel Proal Invite hosted by UC Colorado Springs. Dixie State held on for the win.

While Western was finished the tourney in the same position they held after the first round, they got there in a very different fashion. The team score was identical, 327 in both rounds. Only 7 strokes separated the 7 Lady Stang participants on the first day. That was quite different on day 2.

Lexi Lucero followed her team best 79 with a 90 on day 2 to finish tied for 46th. Brenda Dominguez improved by 6 shots with a 74 placing her in 11th overall. Amanda Portillo & Victoria Hart improved slightly with scores of 83-82 & 85-81 respectively. Julia Enriquez struggled to a 96 on Tuesday after posting an 86 on Monday.

Former Silver High star Chelsea Medina, competing as an individual, completed her college debut with a second round 78, total 162 landing in a tie for 26th. Isabella Peralta carded 86-95 finishing tied for 63rd.

Faith Kilgore, Colorado Christian held on to first place individually shooting 143. Brandi McClain, Mesa State also remained in second with a 149.

WNMU will return to play at the WNMU Fall Intercollegiate on September 23-24 held at the Golf Club at Estrella in Goodyear AZ.
