UTEP Women’s Golf Caps Season at C-USA Championships

FORT MYERS, FL. – The UTEP women’s golf team put the finishing touches on the 2016-17 season by finishing eighth at the Conference USA Championships on Wednesday.

The Miners shot 909 as a team with rounds of 307, 299 and 303. Old Dominion captured the title (289-298-289-876), followed by Middle Tennessee (292-291-301-884), UTSA (298-297-294-889), FIU (305-293-296-894), Southern Miss (300-303-294-897), WKU (305-295-306-906), UAB (296-303-308-907), UTEP, Marshall (304-309-303-916), North Texas (306-306-312-924) and Florida Atlantic (307-307-314-928).

Middle Tennessee’s Jenna Burris was the individual winner with a seven-under-par 209 (67-70-72). She was one of three players to shoot under par for the tournament.

UTEP’s Lily Downs tied for ninth place (75-74-73-222), June Ting tied for 18th place (78-74-73-225), Abbie Anghelescu tied for 42nd place (84-75-77-236), Alisa Rodriguez finished 45th (78-76-83-237) and Sofia Castiello tied for 46th place (76-82-80-238).

Overall it was a much-improved season for the Miners, who won a tournament title (Lady Red Wolf Classic in Jonesboro, Ark.), picked up three runner-up finishes, and five top-five finishes overall.

Downs, Ting and Anghelescu are all slated to return in 2017-18. Downs led the Miners in scoring average (75.1), with Ting second (75.6). Both won tournaments this season, and tied for the team lead with seven top-20 showings.
