Texas to compete in Alamo Invitational

Shelby Hodges

The women’s golf team will travel to San Antonio on Sunday to play in the Alamo Invitational hosted by UTSA. 

The tournament will be held at the Briggs Ranch Golf Course from Sunday to Tuesday, and the team will face off against three schools ranked in the top 20; No. 7 Arkansas, No. 11 Oklahoma and No. 19 Florida. Oklahoma won at the tournament last year and UTSA finished third, while Texas did not attend.

The average score for this course in the Alamo Invitational is 3-over-par 75 per round. Last year, the first-place player carded a total score of 7-under-par 209 for the three days. 

Texas is coming off a 13th-place finish last week at the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational and hopes to do well on the par 72 course. Junior Bertine Strauss and sophomores Natalie Karcher and Tezira Abe will most likely compete for Texas while the other spots will be decided before the team departs for San Antonio.
