Bears' Carrera wins weekly MVC golf honor
Missouri State's Damaso Carrera has been named Missouri Valley Conference Golfer of the Week after a top 10 finish at the Jim Colbert Intercollegiate in Manhattan, Kan., last Monday and Tuesday (Sept. 24-25). The senior from Zaragoza, Spain, shot 79-67-75--221 to finish seventh and lead the Bears to a fifth-place team finish.
Carrera's second-round 67 at the par 72, 7525-yard Colbert Hills layout tied for his career best and was the only round in the 60's posted in the tournament. He currently ranks third on the team with a 76.6 scoring average. The Bears are back in action Monday and Tuesday at the UTA Water Chase Invitational in Arlington, Texas.
