........................................................................................................................................................................................

The Lady Warriors golf team hosted their 12th annual golf fundraiser on Saturday at the New Mexico Tech Golf Course.

The team holds this event every year to raise the funds needed for the program. Team coach Margaret Mitchell said that she would prefer not to have the total raised published in the newspaper, but that the annual event was enough to cover all of their needs for the year.

"It went very well," said Mitchell. "This will cover us for the year."

This year's tournament had 12 teams, a lot of hole sponsors and terrific community support. Door prizes were given away following the free luncheon that concluded the event.

"We want to thank the community," Mitchell said. "We couldn't do this without them."

The funds raised from this event help to purchase uniforms, golf balls and tees, and to cover course entry and/or green fees at the golf courses where the team plays. It also covers travel costs, including some meals and hotel rooms for the girls when they travel out of town for tournaments and matches.
