Women’s golf: Weather disturbs McGuire invite

Lobo freshman Ingrid Gutierrez watches her drive during Monday’s play at the Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational. Greg Sorber/Journal The New Mexico women and 15 other golf teams were just three holes away from finishing the second round of the Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational late Monday afternoon. Then came the wind. And the rain. And the hail. It was pure chaos as dozens of volunteers jumped into golf carts and raced onto the course to rescue the golfers scattered about the 18 holes. “Every golf tournament has an evacuation plan but this storm came so quick it was difficult,” UNM coach Jill Trujillo said. “Plus (because of the hills), it was hard to get carts back here.

Could this be the year of the Ram?

Rio Rancho High School’s varsity girls soccer team edged La Cueva 2-1 Friday evening at the APS soccer complex to win the APS Metro Championships title. The last “Year of the Ram” was in 2007, when the Rams won the Class 5A title.

Lexi Nutter scored twice, both on long free kicks in the first half, and the Rams (7-0), off to their best start in school history, held on for the win. Cassie Boren tallied the Bears’ goal, which came with less than 18 minutes to play against sophomore ‘keeper Sara Wilmot, who’d also allowed a late goal to Cleveland in the Rams’ 2-1 semifinal win Wednesday.

La Cueva got to the championship game out of pool play and beat its District 2-5A rival and last year’s 5A champ, Eldorado, 2-1. The Rams also beat one of their district foes (in 1-6A), the Storm, to get to the showdown with the Bears.

La Cueva (4-1), featured in a video on YouTube (“Hell Week”), gets a chance to avenge that rare loss Thursday when it meets the Rams again at the APS complex at 4:30 p.m
