UTEP Women’s Golf Finish in Seventh Place at the C-USA Championship

FORT MYERS, Fl. – The UTEP women’s golf team wrapped up its 2018-19 season with a seventh-place finish at the 2019  Air Force Reserve Conference USA Championships on Wednesday afternoon.

“The team played to the best of their ability but came up short this week,” UTEP head coach Jere Pelletier said. “Valeria [Mendizabal] and Lily [Downs] both played well. Lily is a solid player and will go down with one of the lowest career scoring averages here at UTEP. We are really going to miss her.”

The Miners shot 892 as a team with rounds of 294, 298 and 300. UTSA captured the title shooting 10-under par 854 (282-291-281), followed by Charlotte with a 2-over par 866 (286-291-289) as runners up.

UTEP sophomore Mendizabal led the team, putting together a 2-over par 218, tying for 10th place.  Senior Downs finished tied for 15th overall, shooting 4-over par 220 (73-74-73).

Audrey Haddad earned a tie for 33rd overall with a 9-over par 225 (75-75-75). She had the only ace of the tournament on the sixth hole par-3. Crystal Wu notched a tie for 42nd overall with a 13-over par 229 (73-79-77). Taylor Stone rounded out the competition tied for 55th with a 26-over par 242 (85-79-78).

UTSA’s Ana Gonzalez took home the individual crown with a 9-under 2017 (69-67-71).

The Orange and Blue capped an exceptional season, winning four of the 10 tournaments. With Downs being the squad’s lone senior, hopes are high for 2019-20.

Two Miners Finish In Top-10, Men’s Golf Places Third at Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate

LAS CRUCES, N.M.- Two UTEP men’s golfers finished in the top-10 of the field, and one more in the top-20, to help their team remain under par and place third at the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate at the NM State Golf Course in Las Cruces, N.M. on Tuesday.

Every Miner, including those playing as individuals, finished in the top-50 of the tournament field.

Prescott Mann finished in a tie for fourth, Charles Corner in sixth, and Aaron Terrazas finished with a share of 14th to help the Miners’ total of 2-under 850 (290-284-276) for the third place finish, two strokes back from second place NM State. Grand Canyon repeated as Herb Wimberly champions, firing 20-under 832 (282-280-270) for the win.

“We got off to a really great start,” head coach Scott Lieberwirth said. “We had four guys under par, it was a complete team effort, probably the first round of the season with that [complete effort].”

Mann’s five birdies, including back-to-back birdies on holes No. 15 and 16, helped keep him under par in his strong final round of 68. Mann shot 4-under 209 (72-69-68) and led the team in birdies with 12 total.

Corner, who was keeping pace with Mann through the first two rounds, shot a final round of 70 for a 2-under 211 (69-72-70) total. Corner notched 11 birdies throughout the tournament. Both Mann and Corner were second in the field in par 3 (-1, 2.92 avg.) and par 4 (-1, 3.97 avg.) scoring.

Terrazas shot his lowest round of the tournament to slip into the top-20 after a 3-over 216 (74-74-68) showing, tallying five birdies and leading the team in pars with 39. Nicklas Pihl finished just outside the top-20 in a tie for 23rd with a 5-over 218 (76-72-70), registering four birdies in his effort.

Eduardo Gonzalez rounded out the UTEP starters, shooting 7-over 220 (75-71-74) for a share of 33rd in a steady round that saw two birdies.

Santiago Castilla was the top individual finisher for the Miners, tying for 14th after firing 3-over 216 (70-77-69), carding eight birdies throughout the tournament. Settavut Paradee finished with a share of 38th with a 8-over 221 (75-74-72) performance.

Paradee had a strong performance in the final round for his low round of the tournament, tallying four birdies in round three, more than the first two rounds combined. Ricardo Catalan completed the Miners’ card with his finish in 45th, shooting 10-over 223 (78-70-75). Catalan recorded an eagle in round two, the first of the season.

As a team, the Miners were first in the field in par 3 scoring (+4/3.07 avg.) and second in birdies (43)

UTEP will return home to host the sixth annual Price’s “Give ‘Em Five” Invitational this weekend, Oct. 20-22, at the Butterfield Trail Golf Club. Admission is free for spectators, live scoring will be available via
