Lertsadwattana has led the Lobos so far this season in all but one tournament. In UNM’s last outing, it was Lehigh that turned in a career performance finishing 10th with a career-low score of 71 in round three.

A trio of Lobos, including redshirt-senior Reva Morris, senior Serena Chon and junior Kamie Hamada, will also be competing as individuals.

The 42nd Annual Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational marks the 65th year that UNM has hosted a women’s golf event, dating back to 1956 in conjunction with the William H Tucker Invitational hosted by the UNM men’s team.
