Another Conference Honor For UHV Women’s Golf

Lerma Earns Conference Honor

A UHV women’s golfer wins a conference for second straight week.

For the second straight week, a University of Houston-Victoria women’s golfer has earned the Sooner Athletic Conference Women’s Golfer of the Week honors.

For her outstanding play in leading the Jaguars to a second-place finish at the Bellevue Spring Break Classic, sophomore Leah Lerma was named the SAC Women’s Golfer of the Week for the week of March 4-10.

Lerma, a Mission High School graduate, opened the tournament with her collegiate low round posting a two-under par 71 and then finished with her career low 36-hole total of 155 to place third at the tournament. After holding the first-round lead, she finished one shot back of the leaders.

Her 155 score also helped the Jaguars post their lowest 18-hole and 36-hole tournament scores (329-331) in five year.

It was Lerma’s first top-10 finish of the season and she currently holds an 81.14 scoring average through three tournaments.
