by Steve Kirkland

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. –– New Mexico senior Lauren Lehigh was named the Mountain West Women’s Golfer of the Week, the conference announced Thursday. She was honored after winning a strong performance at the Clover Cup last week.

It is the second Mountain West weekly honor for a Lobo this season and the first of Lehigh’s career. Myah McDonald was honored earlier this spring after winning The Show at Spanish Trail.

Lehigh helped the Lobos to a runner-up finish at the Clover Cup last week in Mesa, Ariz., finishing T-3rd. Her 9-under score of 207 was her career best, while her final round 67 tied the low round of her career. It was her second straight top-10 individual finish.

The Lobos return to action March 17-19 with the Mountain View Collegiate in Tucson, Ariz.
