Up Next For UNM: Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown (Oct. 27-29) -- Las Vegas (UNLV)

AUSTIN, Texas – The University of Texas Golf Club decided to fight back.  After allowing 10 golfers to crack into the 60s on Sunday’s first 18 holes, the course toughened up and cut that number in half.

The course was even tougher on the teams as only one of the teams in the top 12 shot better over the second 18 holes.

The bright spot for New Mexico at the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational continues to be senior Sammi Stevens, who fired a 72 on Monday for a 142 total that has her five shots behind UCLA’s Alison Lee and Mississippi State’s Jessica Peng.  Lee added a 68 on Monday to her Sunday 69 and sits at 137 as does Peng, who went 67-70—137.

Stevens is one of three Mountain West golfers in contention for the individual title as UNLV’s Dana Finkelstein and San Diego State’s Sirene Blair are tied for the No. 5 spot with cards of 140.  UNM’s Manon DeRoey is tied for 43rd at 76-73—149. Sofia Hoglund  has a card of 76-78—154, Katerina Jaeger is at 77-78—155 and  Manon Molle’  has gone 79-83--162.

The New Mexico Lobos started their round in solid fashion and at one point was only one of five teams under par. The Lobos again had trouble down the home stretch and shot a 301 to fall into the No. 14 hole at plus 24.  The Lobos are 38 shots behind UCLA which snatched the lead from first-round leader Miami. 

The Hurricanes pounded the Texas Golf Club on Sunday with a sizzling 276, but it took them 16 more shots on Monday and their team total of 276-292—568 has them in third place at 568.  The Bruins dropped a shot from their first round – 281-282 – but carry a three-shot lead over Arizona State (283-283—566) into Tuesday’s final round.

The only team in the top 12 that improved on its first 18 holes was Iowa State which went 291-282—573, good for fourth place with 18 to play.  UNLV and San Diego State of the Mountain West are tied for the No. 9 hole at 587.

Miami had four players crack par on the University of Texas Golf Club on Sunday, but had no sub-par golfers on Monday.  Miami’s Dani Darquewa shot even-par on Monday and sits at 139 in fourth place.  The Lobos tee off on Tuesday between 8:54 a.m. and 9:30 a.m.
