From JUCO to NAIA

The men's and women's golf teams at the University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College (don't be confused by the name - that's one men's team and one women's team, not four teams total) were supposed to play in the Mary-Hardin Baylor Invitational tournament next week, a JUCO event. Instead, they're looking for NAIA tournaments to enter.

The golf programs at UTB/TSC learned recently that they have been accepted into the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. They'll begin competing at the NAIA level as soon as they find tournaments with openings.

There aren't that many NAIA golf programs in Texas. By my count, there are 10 total:

Men's NAIA Golf Teams
Northwood (Cedar Hill)
Texas A&M International (Laredo)
Texas Wesleyan (Fort Worth)
Lubbock Christian
Wayland Baptist (Plainview)
UT-Brownsville and Texas Southmost

Women's NAIA Golf Teams
Lubbock Christian
Northwood (Cedar Hill)
Texas A&M International (Laredo)
UT-Brownsville and Texas Southmost
