LAREDO -- Scorpion golfer April Martinez made a run at the medalist trophy at the Texas A&M University International-Jack Brown Memorial Golf Tournament Tuesday, February 4 at Laredo Country Club, but got little support from her teammates as UTB/TSC finished fourth.
After an opening-round score of 80, Martinez came roaring back Tuesday, getting the only eagle of the tournament on the par-5, 434-yard 17th hole. She finished the day with a two-over par 74 score and come within one stroke of Mariale Camey of UT-Pan American. Camey shot a 79 Tuesday after an opening-round 74 for a 153 total, edging Martinez by one shot.
UTB/TSC finished with a five-woman total of 700, trailing tournament medalist UT-Pan American, which shot a 627. St. Mary's University was second with a 354 and Dallas Baptist University third with a 693.
Other scores for the Scorpions were Tara Calderon at 184, Annette Valdez and Allison Valles at 186, and Andrea Cadriel at 188.
