The Tulane University women’s golf season has started, with the Green Wave already having competed in four tournaments.

The team’s best finish thus far was finishing fifth out of 14 schools at the Reynolds Lake Oconee Invitational. Tulane’s highest scorer, Sandra Vasquez, finished tied for 16th place. Freshman Carla Bernat shot the best in an individual round, finishing -2 after the third round. Bernat would end up placing 18th overall. 

The Green Wave also placed sixth out of 17 schools at the Tulane Classic. Again, Vasquez led the way, shooting +3, good enough to tie for ninth place. Bernat continued to impress by leading Tulane after two rounds of play but ended up finishing 24th overall. 

Although the Green Wave finished 10th at the Trinity Forest Invitational, Tulane had its highest individual finish of the year, as Bernat would place eighth. Vasquez started off rough, shooting +8 in the first round, but was able to finish 18th after a par and +3 outing on the final round. 

Tulane headed for South Carolina to compete in the Briar’s Creek Invitational hosted by the College of Charleston. Tulane tied for 11th place out of 17 schools. Vazquez again led the way for the Green Wave, finishing tied for 36th.

The Green Wave will compete next at The Bruzzy, hosted in Thackerville, Oklahoma on April 11 and 12. The American Athletic Conference Championship will be the week after, hosted in Pinehurst, North Carolina.
