Jayme Quintana shot a 95 on March 16 at the Chamisa Hills Country Club in Rio Rancho, completing her final “leg” needed to qualify individually for the state golf tournament.

The Robertson standout led the Lady Cardinals to a second-place team finish in the tournament, which opened the spring season for the golf program.

The girls’ team posted an overall score of 430. 

Quintana had a strong fall, earning the first two “legs” of qualification. 

The RHS girls’ golf team includes Jamie Allen, Shannon Lopez, Nina Martinez and Jayme Quintana. 

The RHS boys’ golf team shot well, according to new coach Gene Gurule. The Cardinals are Miclo Allen, Grant Gregory and Casey McElroy.

Next on the tour for Robertson is the Santa Ana course in Bernalillo on Friday and Ladera Golf Course in Albuquerque on Monday. 

Notes: West Las Vegas’ golf program, coached by Jose “Majic” Medina, begins its spring season the first week of April. Both teams are again practicing at the reopened NMHU Gene Torres Golf Course.
