Martinez Breaks Own School Record with 75 at UMHB Tourney
Posted October 1, 2007
TEMPLE -- April Martinez broke her own UTB/TSC school record with a 75 University of Mary Hardin-Baylor Lady Crusader Fall Invitational Monday, October 1 at the Wildflower Country Club.
The junior from Edinburg Economedes High School shot a 38 on the front nine and 37 on the back nine for her three-over par total. She held the old record with rounds of 76 at least three times during her freshman and sophomore years.
"I've been waiting this for a long time," Scorpion head golf coach Bob Lucio said. "She'll have a sub-par round one of these days, and I'm looking forward to seeing it."
Martinez was the only non-freshman on the Scorpion squad that is competing in the tournament. The other qualifiers were all freshmen -- three from Brownsville Hanna and one from Del Rio. Lucio is holding qualifying rounds during practice for upcoming tournaments to determine tournament team players.
As a unit, the Scorpions shot a 338, good for fourth place and 17 shots behind first-round leader Tyler Junior College.
Rae-Anne Lerma shot an 83, Ariana Gutierrez 87, Amanda Anzaldua 93, and Andrea Cadriel 97.
"Our four freshman are totally inexperienced, but they are very talented," Lucio said. "I'll give them two or three tournaments and they'll be doing much better.
Competing as individual players Tara Calderon shot 90, Allison Valles 98, and Annette Valdez 99.
The tournament concludes Tuesday, October 2, with the final 18 holes.
