The American Southwest Conference is represented in both national coaching polls. The women’s National Golf Coaches Association Top 10 includes Mary Hardin-Baylor No. 3 and Hardin-Simmons No. 9. The men’s Precept/Golf Coaches Association of America’s Top 25 lists Hardin-Simmons No. 15, UT Dallas No. 16 and UMHB No. 17.

McMurry freshman Rode McElreath had an impressive showing in his spring debut by placing fifth out of 73 individuals at the UMHB Invitational (Mar. 1-2), shooting a 149 for 36 holes (74-75--149). McElreath was the fourth-highest ASC player and he was only five shots from the winning score of 144. . . . The UMHB Tournaments were the first events of the spring season for both McMurry teams. The men were in ninth place after the first round but jumped five spots to finish fourth in the team standings, thanks to carding 11 strokes better over the next 18 holes. The Lady Indians had an even better performance in their second round, shooting 362 compared to 390 in the first – a 28-stroke improvement. . . . Amy Morgan (17th) joined Brittany Cary in the Top 20 for the women and Kent Neal (17th tie) was a Top 20 finisher for the men. . . . Both McMurry teams are scheduled to play at the Texas Lutheran tournaments Monday and Tuesday (Mar. 15-16).

Mary Hardin-Baylor came away with both titles of its own UMHB Spring Invitational tournaments (Mar. 1-2). The men carded a 36-hole 593 while the women shot 671 over the 36 holes. . . . Junior Amanda Tuskey finished third at the UMHB Spring Invitational after firing the second-best single round of the tournament with a second-day 77. . . . The UMHB men fired the two lowest rounds of the tournament on its home course. The Crusaders bested nine other ASC teams to win the title. . . . The Lady Crusaders took the top two spots at their UMHB Spring Invitational with Team #1 winning the title with a 671 and Team #2 finishing second with a 673. All nine UMHB golfers finished in the top 17 in that tournament and freshman Meredith McArthur fired a second-round 76 to post the individual low round of the tournament. . . . The Mary Hardin-Baylor men’s team is scheduled to play at the Texas Lutheran tournaments Monday and Tuesday (Mar. 15-16). The women’s team will be at the Monarch Invitational in Fayetteville, N.C., Thursday and Friday (Mar. 11-12).

Texas Lutheran sophomore Michael Faterkowski finished in a tie for third at the Mary Hardin-Baylor Spring Invitational, shooting rounds of 72 and 75 to pace the Bulldogs to a third-place team finish. . . . Senior Theresa Ashorn led TLU to a tie for fifth place in the team standings at the UMHB Lady Crusader Invitational. Ashorn posted two rounds of 87 at the Sammons Park Golf Course and finished in a tie for 17th individually. . . . The TLU women fielded a full spring squad of five and finished behind only two teams from the ASC (and both those teams were from UMHB). The women’s squad is comprised of a senior, a junior, a sophomore transfer and two true freshmen. . . . Both teams return to action next Monday and Tuesday (Mar. 15-16) when they host their respective tournaments in Seguin. The men host the John Bohmann Memorial Tournament at Chaparral Country Club in Seguin, and the women host the TLU Spring Invitational at Starcke Park Municipal Golf Course.

Louisiana College men shot a 638 to finish ninth in the UMHB Spring Invitational Tournament. Travis White and Michael Allgood each shot 161 over the 36-hole tournament to lead the Wildcats. . . . LC travels to Pine Mountain, Ga., for the Calloway Gardens Tournament Monday and Tuesday (March 15-16).
