SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Sophomore Carlos Ortiz continued his domination as he captured his second straight individual title for the North Texas men's golf team by winning the Lone Star Invitational. Ortiz shot a 5-under par 67 on the final day to surge past the field and win by one stroke.
North Texas as a team shot a final round of 3-under par 285 and finished third in the tournament, one shots behind Notre Dame and eight shots behind tournament champion UTA.
The 67 for Ortiz is his third round in the 60's this fall and he is the first North Texas player to win back-to-back tournaments in over a decade. He shot a three-round score of 5-under par 211 after winning the William H. Tucker Intercollegiate two weeks earlier.
Josh Jones and Rodolfo Cazaubon each had top 15 finishes as the shot final rounds of 1-over par 73. The pair posted scores of 1-over par 217 for the tournament, which was good for 15th place.
Curtis Donahoe shot an even-par round of 72 as he finished tied for 30th place while Marco Scarola had his best round of the tournament with a 1-over par 73 in the third round.
This is the final fall tournament for the Mean Green as they will not return to action until the spring season begins on February 14-15 at the Oak Hills Invitational.
