The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor women's golf team followed up a solid opening day score with a blistering second round as the Cru rolled to a victory at the Lady Bulldog Invitational Tuesday in Seguin. UMHB recorded a 24-stroke victory in the season opening event.

UMHB fired a final round 299 to finish with a two-day total of 307-299=606 for first place. The Cru's final round 299 matches the third-best team round in program history.

There were ten teams competing in the tournament.

UMHB players swept the top three individual spots in the event. Casey Washmon won individual honors in her first collegiate tournament after posting a 72-78=150. McKenna Ralston (77-74) and Tori Gatling (79-72) tied for second place with 151's.
