Golfers Win Tourney By 39

By John Severance

RUIDOSO – The Socorro girls golf team braved the elements and shot a 354 to win the Great Eight Invitational Friday by 39 shots.
The Lady Warriors won their fourth leg of state and coach Margaret Stanley said Portales was the closest competition and the other four schools that participated were 4A.
“It snowed on us for a little bit…morning was cold but not too windy,” Stanley said. “Wind picked up later and clouds rolled in making the afternoon even colder.
“We definitely had some putting issues and will be working hard on our short game for the next two weeks.”
Socorro’s Kristen Cline and Shania Berger shot 82 to tie for medalist honors.
Berger then beat Cline on the first playoff hole.
Teammate Brittani Webb rebounded from last week’s 100 at the Seery at New Mexico Tech to score an 83.
Theresa Chavez shot a 107 and Mirjana Gacanich shot a 119 to round out the scoring.
Socorro will be back in action April 19 and 20 in Roswell.
