The Longhorns head to Boulder City, Nevada to compete in UNLV’s Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown at Boulder Creek Golf Club Sunday through Tuesday. The 54-hole event showcases 19 teams.

Coming off last week’s fourth-place finish in the Betsy Rawls Invitational, Texas is ready to close out the season on a high note. Coach Murphy noted there were “a lot of positives” after last week, and the team hopes to carry that momentum into next week.

“I don’t have to convince them they are winners,” Murphy said. “They’ve won, and they know in their mind they are good.”

Junior Julia Beck claimed fourth place individually in Texas’ home tournament with a career-best finish. Beck and her teammates will take the positives with them into their final tournament this fall.

“I just know I need to stay in the moment and have patience and it will work out,” Beck said.

The Longhorns will play the first 18 holes on Sunday with shotgun tee times starting at noon PDT. They will be the only Big 12 school to compete in this tournament. The par 72 and 6,277-yard course will be the final test for the Longhorns before their spring season begins in February.
