Lady Stangs Golf in 7th Place

The Western New Mexico University women's golf team is tied for seventh after a windy round one concluded Monday afternoon at the St. Edward's Invitational.

With gusts ranging from 20-35 MPH throughout the day, the field was able to fight through the course and shot quiet well. Western New Mexico is tied with Cameron University as both teams carded 350's. Host St. Edward's leads the pack with a 324, holding a 10-stroke lead over Tarleton State. Hawaii-Hilo's Kristen Sawada cut through the wind to hold the top score of 78.

WNMU was paced again by another solid round from Haley Raymond (Socorro, NM/Socorro High School). The senior opened with a 43 and totaled a 40 on the back-nine to post an 83 to tie for tenth. Arrianna Estrada (Belen, NM/Belen High School) was consistent throughout the day, as the junior fired 43 and 42 to card an 85 which is good for a tie for 18th. Bianca Dominguez (Deming, NM/Deming HS) wasn't far off the pace, as the sophomore was one-stroke apart with 45 and 44 showings to total an 89 and into a tie for 41st. Faylyn Beyale (Fruitland, NM/Kirtland Central High School) opened with a 49 and then the senior shot a 44 on the back-nine to end up with a 93 and into a tie for 52nd. Cheyenne Molina (Deming, NM/Deming HS) is in 75th as the freshman posted a 100 (48-52).

The second and final round will begin Tuesday morning with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m.
