Atop the Mountain

The women’s golf team is on the way to its 12th consecutive postseason berth in the NCAA Central Regional beginning in May. The regional will be held in Austin.

The team took the conference title by one stroke over the No. 15 Brigham Young Cougars. Leading the way was the collective bounty of seniors Camille Blackerby and Catherine Matranga and freshman Valentine Derrey. All three are ranked as top-100 collegiate players on the national scale.

The performances by this trio helped them earn All-Mountain West Conference accolades at the end of the tournament in St. George, Utah.

Last season’s conference champion, the No. 45 UNLV Rebels finished in fourth place putting an end to the three-year reign at the top of the Mountain West. The Horned Frogs are currently ranked No. 24 and the championship title gave TCU the honor of Golfweek’s Women’s Golf Team of the Week.
