Golf: Campbell Named LSC Golfer of the Week

Midwestern State sophomore Sierra Campbell garnered Lone Star Conference Golfer of the Week honors Thursday afternoon.

The Rio Rancho, N.M. native claimed her first collegiate win by firing a 6-over 146 to lead the Mustangs to their second consecutive team victory at the Arkansas-Fort Smith Lion Classic Monday and Tuesday t the Hardscrabble Country Club.

Campbell finished in the Top 10 in each of her last four tournaments including a third-place showing at the Midwestern State Invitational and was fourth in the the Las Vegas Classic to lower her season scoring average to 75.87.

Midwestern State has registered four straight top three finishes as a team with a third-place showing at the Oklahoma Intercollegiate to close the fall semester then finished second at the Las Vegas Classic to pen the spring before winning the Midwestern State Invitational on March 16-17 at the Wichita Falls Country Club.

The Mustangs compete in Doc Houseright Invitational hosted by Tarleton State on April 13-14 at the Harbor Lakes Golf Club in Granbury.

Track: Ramirez, Flores Strong at Texas Relays

Midwestern State's Emma Ramirez and Ashley Flores fought windy conditions to match last season's ending times Thursday night in the Nike Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays at Mike A. Myers Stadium.

Ramirez, a senior from Palmdale, Calif., paced an 11:16.09 to place ninth in the 3,000-meter Steeplechase, while Flores, a senior from Haltom City, finished 10th in the 1,500-meter run with a time of 4:42.74.

"I was really happy with their performances," MSU coach Koby Styles said. "The wind conditions weren't the best tonight, so I am looking forward to seeing how well their times improve as we move forward."

Ramirez fell five seconds shy of the NCAA Division II provisional time of 11:11.53. She attained the time in the Lone Star Conference Championship last season clocking a personal best time of 11:10.33.

"That's the only the third time ever Emma has done a full steeple," Styles said. " She ran with two of the top girls in the LSC and finished his is a huge confidence builder for her, so she's pumped up and motivated. I really believe she could challenge the school record. She's ready to do it."

Ramirez finished ahead of West Texas A&M's Michaela Johnson (11:24.45/10th) and Tarleton State's Tylo Farrar (11:50.24/13th).

Flores fell just shy of the 4:42.20 she paced at the 2014 NCAA Division III Championships as she works toward a return trip to nationals aiming at bettering a PR and school record time of 4:35.95 set last season at the West Texas A&M Classic.

"With the wind conditions the way they were, the race went out super slow," Styles said. "Ashley's performance was better than her time. With 500 meters to go she was under 4:30 pace. This is a great opener to the season for them. I am pretty excited for tomorrow."

Midwestern State competes in the distance medley relay Friday night at Myers Stadium with senior Cara Mack (1,200 meters), freshman April Pena (400 meters), Flores (800 meters) and sophomore Tia Streeter (1,500 meters). The race begins 7:10 p.m.
