DENVER, CO – New Mexico State’s Camille Orito has been named the Western Athletic Conference Women’s Golfer of the Week for April 7-13.

Orito, a freshman from Fresno, Calif. (Clovis West HS) finished in a three-way tie for first place at the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic in Maricopa, Ariz. Her 1-under par 215 three-round score led New Mexico State its first tournament team title since October of 2010. Orito shot a career-best 1-under par 71 in the first round and followed it up with a career-best 2-under par 70 in the second round. The 1-under 215 is a career-best for Orito, who was playing in only her sixth tournament for NM State. Orito’s finish is the best Aggie finish since former Aggie golfer Demi Mak won the BYU at Entrada Classic in March of 2011.
