VICTORIA, TEXAS (Oct. 17, 2023) – The Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) women's golf team captured the UHV Fall Classic, finishing six strokes ahead of the University of Houston-Victoria (UHV). The event was sponsored by UHV at the Victoria Country Club.

Head Coach Arnie Martinez commented, "I'm so proud of our women. For them to come on to a golf course they don't know very well and be able to execute better than every other team is a testament to what they are capable of. Victoria Country Club is a great test of golf. It tests all aspects of your game. They controlled their emotions through a very windy and difficult day. Congratulations to Kendall on her great performance tieing for first place. The sky is the limit with her and everyone saw what she's capable of this week. It's a great way to end the fall season. Go, Saints!"

UHV had the biggest jump from the first day to overcome the University of St. Thomas., who was in first place, with a final 680. The Saints powered through to improve 10 strokes to finish at 674 to win the tournament besting the Jaguars by six strokes.

Finishing in third was St. Thomas with a final 689, followed by Blinn College at 690, the University of Dallas at 725 and the University of the Southwest at 834.

Freshman Kendall Ward had a phenomenal outing, finishing in a tie for first place with Emily Madeley from Blinn. Both players shot a first round 82 and second round 81. However, Madeley beat Ward in a playoff for the women's individual championship.

Annabelle Reyna improved from a first-day 12th place to finish in sixth with a final round of 80 for a final score of 167.

Ceci Lattuada dropped from fourth to sixth for a final score of 169. Madelyn Miller improved from 15th place to 13th place with a final score of 175. Grayson Weiler jumped from 18th to 17th place with a score of 180.
