UTD Freshman Karen Alvarez Named ASC Golfer of the Week

RICHARDSON, TX (09.11.19) - UT Dallas freshman has been named the American Southwest Conference Women's Golfer of the Week, announced by the league office Wednesday.

Alvarez, a native of Katy, claimed medalist honors in the first collegiate tournament of her career as she topped the field at the Lady Bulldog Fall Classic hosted by Texas Lutheran this week. The Cinco Ranch High School product posted the second-lowest single round in UTD women's golf history on Monday and finished the two-day event with the third-lowest 36-hole total all-time for the Comets. Alvarez finished the event at 150, shooting a 73 on Monday and a 77 on Tuesday.

The Comets return to the links Sept. 23-24 for the Southwestern Christian Invitational, held at the Lake Hefner Golf Course in Bethany, Okla.
