Women’s golf secures its best finish this season
Women’s golf finished at No. 3 at the Jim West Challenge in San Marcos on Monday, its best finish so far this season.
Senior All-American Leonie Harm led the way for UH on the first day of the tournament with six birdies and an eagle while tying a school record with a score of 65 in the second round.
Harm’s performance in the two rounds lifted her to No. 3 under freshman Frida Kinhult of Florida State and junior Renate Grimstad of Miami.
The team matched its season-low round, going three under the 285 par to put them at No. 7 on the leader boards.
Along with Harm, freshman Hannah Screen showed she is a viable asset to Houston with a 146 finish, No. 28 in the individual standings.
Although TCU secured the team title on the second day of the tournament, Houston produced a rise it has not seen all season.
Freshman Maria Jose Martinez tied for No. 12 in the ranks with a personal-best score of 67 and led the team with eight birdies.
Screen also finished off a decent day with another even-par round and a score of 72 that tied her for No. 23.
Senior Maddy Rayner finished just a bit behind Screen with a birdie, an eagle and a tie at No. 27 in the final round.
Houston will hit the course again in San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico when they play in the Baylor Invitational Nov. 2-4.
