t has been several years since Los Cabos hosted a NCAA Division I golf tournament; and there is no better golf

course in the region than Querencia to welcome back College Golf to Cabo. Te Club at Querencia was the setting

Par- ticipating schools included St. Mary’s Uni- versity, Oregon State, Boise State, Lamar, Pacific, Cal State Northridge, the Univer- sity of Texas at Arlington, UC Irvine, the University of Houston and SMU. A week before the tournament started

the College Golf Rankings were announced as follows: the University of Arkansas at #8, Lamar University at #13 and SMU at #39.

it quickly became evident to players why Querencia is recognized as a challenging course.

Nevertheless, there were many very talented golfers playing in this event. Tis was evidenced in the second round scores with many more play- ers shooting under par and Kelly Kraſt from SMU shooting the lowest round of the tournament with a 65. Te closing day turned out to be a showcase of outstand-

ing golf shots that leſt no doubt as to why College Golf has produced some of the top players in the world. Once all the numbers were in, the
