The UTD women’s golf team shaved almost 30 strokes off of its previous season low score but still couldn’t break from the back of the pack at the UT Brownsville Invitational.
“We are young and inexperienced,” Head Coach Kat Salerno said. “We’ve had a hard time adjusting and getting started. What I ask of them is improvement every time.”
The Comets finished the April 3-4 tournament in sixth place, with a two-round total of 857.
Freshman Courtney Sewell paced the Comets, shooting a 193 – including a 94 on the second day – and finishing in 17th place overall.
Junior Caroline Butler, the top scorer in the first tourney of the year, was one stroke behind her teammate.
“Our goals, realistically, are to get a better score and have fun. We want to make this a legitimate program and be among the conference front runners,” Salerno said. “We’ve made a commitment to gain respect.”
