GRANITEVILLE, SC – The Texas A&M women’s golf team topped Clemson and GRU Augusta after 36 holes of play Sunday at the Battle at the Valley in Graniteville, SC. Freshman Marijosse Navarro finished atop the individual leaderboard with senior Katerina Ruzickova finished second.

“The team really battled today,” head coach Trelle McCombs said. “This was one of the hardest golf courses we have played with exceptionally fast greens. The first round allowed the teams to get used to the course because we were not able to play a practice round. Once we got comfortable with the course they started to put up some really good scores in the afternoon.”

The Aggies (306-291) topped the leaderboard by nine strokes over GRU Augusta (308-298) thanks to a three-over par second round. Clemson (305-310) finished third, trailing GRU Augusta by nine strokes.

Individually the Aggies took first and second place honors at the event. Freshman Marijosse Navarro (74-70) placed first finishing two rounds at even par. Navarro from Mexico City, Mexico enrolled at A&M in January and has only competed for the maroon and white two times including this weekend’s tournament.

“I am really proud of how MJ played today,” McCombs said. “This was just her second start as a college golfer and she is not wasting any time getting her feet wet. She is a special player and I know she will have many more wins in her future in Aggieland.”

Senior Katerina Ruzickova (77-71) was the runner-up at four over par, finishing in the top-5 for the fifth time this year.  The Czech Repulic native has finished in the top-20 of all seven tournaments that Aggies have competed in this year.

 Completing the A&M lineup were freshman Andrea Jonama (80-73, t6th), Bianca Fabrizio (79-77, 12th) and Callie Scheffler (76-85, 15th). Senior Chelsea Mocio (79-75) competed at an individual in South Carolina and finished tied for eighth.

“Today was just another example of a great team win for us,” McCombs added. “Everyone on the course contributed for us today, even Chelsea helped us out despite playing as an individual. She faced a tough task of playing without her clubs, because they did not arrive in time so we borrowed a set of clubs from a former player of mine and Chelsea teed it up and played the hand she was dealt today. Her attitude today really helped us as a team.”

The Aggies will return to action this Friday at the SunTrust Gator Invitational in Gainesville, Florida. Stay tuned to AggieAthletics.com and follow @AggieWomensGolf on Twitter for coverage of Texas A&M women’s golf.
