Texas finishes in first at Grand Prix

Texas placed three runners in the top five to win the Grass Routes Grand Prix at Morris Williams Golf Course last Friday.

The Longhorns were led by senior Mia Behm, whose time of 21:33 was good enough for third place in the competition. The course was a challenge because of its hilly nature. 

“The race today was pretty rough,” Behm said.

Rounding out the top five for Texas were sophomores Sara Sutherland and Marielle Hall.

“It felt like they wanted to make it as hilly as they could, but I was really proud of our team,” Behm said.

Texas Hook ‘Em took the No. 1 team spot, with its second team, Texas Horns, placing fourth.

“I am really happy with their performance,” said Texas head coach Stephen Sisson. “I would like to see faster times, but you should do video footage on this course to show people how difficult it is.”

Texas’ next event will come in two weeks on Oct. 15 at the Chile Pepper Festival in Fayetteville, Ark.
