SAN ANTONIO - The
Texas A&M women's golf team concluded its fall season Tuesday by finishing
in second place at the Alamo Invitational.
The Aggies ended the tournament with a final score of
856, eight under par. Oklahoma finished the tournament with a score of 848, an
incredible 15 under par. Host UTSA (-1), Tulane (-1), Baylor (+10), Kentucky
(+11), SMU (+15), LSU (+17), East Carolina (+19), Texas State (+24), Louisville
(+30), Tennessee (+33), Colorado (+58), Nebraska (+60) and North Texas (+65)
"I've very proud of the way these girls represented Texas
A&M this week," Texas A&M head coach Trelle McCombs said. "They did
such an amazing job of sticking to plan all week. OU was just too far ahead to
catch after the first round. We did a great job of keeping up with them after
Junior Natalie Reeves moved up from a 10th place
tie to end the tournament in a tie for fifth place individually. Reeves shot
one under par during the third round to bring her three-day score to 213 (-3).
Senior Sarah Beth Davis slipped from first place at the end of the second round
to finish in a tie for 10th with a final score of 214 (-2).
"This was a great team effort with every player
contributing," McCombs added. "I've told them all week that it has to be like
that because someone could have an off day and we need to have their back. That's
what Sarah did for us the first two rounds and we had to have her back today. I
told her in the fairway on 18 that she didn't lose this tournament; she's just learning
how to win. She'll bounce back right away and be ready in the spring."
Juniors Katerina Ruzickova and Chelsea Mocio were not too
far behind with scores of 216 (E) and 218 (+2), respectively. Ruzickova tied
for 15th place and Mocio tied for 22nd. Senior Mary
Michael Maggio rounded out the A&M contingency with a score of 223 (+7).
Texas A&M senior Aly Smith, competing only as an individual, completed the
tournament with a final score of 239 (+23).
"All-in-all, I'm very happy with where we are right now,"
McCombs said. "We're getting better and better every round."
The Aggies will take a break for the rest of the
semester, returning to the green Feb. 15-17 for the Mash Up Invitational in
Tallahassee, Fla. Live scoring for that event will be available at
