FORT WORTH, Texas -- Catherine Matranga is one of the anchors of the TCU women's golf team.
Matranga tied for the national lead with three eagles during the Fall 2005 season.
The junior from Fort Worth led the Horned Frogs with a 74-68-75=217, good for a third-place showing and just two strokes off the pace, as TCU recorded a 21-stroke victory at Kansas State's Marilynn Smith/Sunflower Invitational. The second-round 68 was a career-low and one stroke shy of a school record.
Matranga also had TCU's top score with a 74-75-75=224 at New Mexico's Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational. She tied for second on the team with a 75.2 fall stroke average.
Matranga's 76.0 mark in the 2004-05 campaign also ranked second on the team. She recorded four Top 10 scores and a total of seven Top 20 results in earning second-team All-Conference honors.
Included in last spring's efforts was a 69 in the second round of the PING/Arizona State Invitational. She tied for second at the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational with a 76-75-75=226.
