LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- The New Mexico State men's golf team will travel to Laredo, Texas this weekend to play in the Border Olympics golf tournament, March 25-26. The tournament will be hosted by the University of Houston at the Laredo Country Club, a par 72, 7,125 yards golf course.
"We want to continue to compete for a top-5 spot and hopefully put ourselves in a position to win down in Laredo," Head Coach Scott Lieberwirth said. "I think we shook off our performance at Fresno and played a solid tournament in Oregon. Laredo is a course we have played in a past although we haven't played as well as we would have liked but I think this is a much different team and I expect our guys to go out and perform at a high-level this weekend."
The Aggies will send senior Tim Madigan, junior Gaston De La Torre, junior Joon Lee, freshman Collin Pratt and sophomore Will Holdridge.
Last year at the Border Olympics, the Aggies placed 13th overall as a team, after firing a three-round score of 48-over par. Madigan led the Aggies with a 16th place finish and a three-round score of 5-over par, 221. De La Torre would finish tied for 28th at 8 over par.
NM State will face schools from Houston, Air Force, Arkansas, Baylor, Indiana, Lamar, Liberty, Kansas, Kansas State, North Texas, Oklahoma, Rice, Texas State, Toledo, UT Arlington, UTSA, Washington State and Wichita State.
