UTEP’s Valeria Mendizabal Named Conference USA Athlete of the Week

UTEP women’s golf Valeria Mendizabal was named the Conference USA Golfer of the week after her performance at the Wyoming Cowgirl Desert Classic, announced by the league office on Tuesday.

Mendizabal contributed a consistent effort for the Miners at the Wyoming Cowgirl Desert Invitational.

The sophomore tied for second place out of 70 golfers with three straight rounds of 1-over 73 (219) to lift UTEP to its first tournament title of the 2018-19 season.

The Guatemala native registered a 2-under and tied the event lead on par-5 scoring. The 12-team tournament was played at the Classic Club in Palm Desert, California.

The Orange and Blue will return to action at the Aggie Invitational on October 8-10 in Las Cruces.
