UTEP Golf poised to make NCAA regional for first time since 2004


EL PASO, Texas (CBS4) -- The UTEP men's golf team will be competing in the Conference USA Championships April 23-26 in Texarkana, Ark.

The Miners have had an outstanding season, winning three tournaments and finishing in the top-five at six of their 11 competitions. Most recently, UTEP knocked off a pair of top-25 teams (no. 17 Texas, no. 25 Arizona State) at the prestigious Western Intercollegiate in Santa Cruz, Calif.

The Miners are ranked no. 55 in the latest Golfstat Division I NCAA rankings and are in good position to earn a bid to NCAA Regionals. UTEP is the second-highest ranked team in C-USA behind no. 50 Middle Tennessee.
