UTEP Men’s Golf Set to Compete in Border Olympics

Fresh off its highest finish in the spring, the UTEP men’s golf team will lace up their spikes again when they travel to Laredo, Texas, to compete in the Border Olympics March 10-11.
Participants will play 36 holes on Friday and the remaining 18 holes Saturday at the Laredo Country Club (Par 72/7,125 yards). 
 
Last year’s Border Olympics was shortened to two rounds due to rain. Baylor took home the team title after shooting 20-under-par 556 (277-279) and Haraldur Magnus of Louisiana won the individual title at 10-under-par 134 (66-68). The Miners, who tied for 11th with ULM, shot 4-over-par 580 (300-280), with Nicklas Pihl finishing at the top of the Miners’ scorecard in a tie for 8th at 4-under 140 (74-66).
 
UTEP finished in fourth place in the National Invitational Tournament last week in Tucson, Ariz., Pihl was also UTEP’s top finisher in a share of 11th place. 

The Miners will compete in a 19-team field that includes Houston, Bowling Green, Campbell, Houston Baptist, Lamar, Little Rock, Louisiana-Lafayette, McNesse State, Nebraska, New Mexico State, Oral Roberts, Rice, Sacramento State, Sam Houston State, Stephen F. Austin, Texas State, ULM and UTSA. 

Now in the meat of their spring schedule, the Miners will send Frederik Dreier (73 avg.), Aaron Terrazas (71.6 avg.), Pihl (73.3 avg.), Andreas Sorensen (74.5 avg.), Charles Corner (74.6 avg.), and Prescott Mann (73.6 avg.) to the links.
