Junior Enrique Livas finished fourth in the individual results, after shooting a 77 on the final day, dropping a spot to Dallas Baptist’s Jeffery Juillerat. His fourth place finish secured him a place on the All-Heartland Conference Team. 

The men enter the NCAA Super Regional seeded sixth in the South Central Region. Play begins May 6 through May 8 at The Home Course, DuPont, Washington. 

Women’s Golf

The women continued their dominance on the course as all five players landed in the top 15 individual scores. Strong play by Melisa Gonzalez. After the first day, she  was tied for first with Dallas Baptist junior Mercedes Rios, who took the individual championship.
