The SMU women's golf team will travel to Twin Rivers Golf Club in Waco, Texas for the Baylor Invitational Monday and Tuesday.
Last year at the invitational, SMU finished in seventh place out of 14 teams when they shot 941. The big story, however, was the performance of then senior Kate Ackerson, whose three-round total was 223. Ackerson finished in first place, shooting 74, 74 and 75 at the par 72, 6,349- yard course.
Current sophomore Jennifer Hooper also played well last year, shooting 233 and tying for 14th place. Sarah Dodson came in 31st place, shooting 238.
The Mustangs came home from the Ole Miss Golf Course in a tie for 14th place at the Rebel Intercollegiate last weekend. SMU shot 920 and tied with Oklahoma. They barely beat out the University of Wisconsin, whose three-round total was 922.
Freshman Tanya Wadhwa had SMU's top score. She shot 227, just three shots ahead of junior Tia Gannon.
The Mustangs also have the C-USA Championships to look forward to in Hattiesburg, Miss. April 18-20.
