SAN ANTONIO — UTSA will return to action this weekend when it travels to Waco to face No. 40 Baylor in a dual match-play tournament at Ridgewood Country Club.

The two-day tournament recently was added to both teams’ schedules as a makeup event for rounds lost to weather this season. Saturday's round will be two-on-two scrambles, with pairs from each team competing against each other in match play beginning with tee times at 1:30 p.m. Sunday's round gets started at 9:30 a.m. and will be head-to-head match play.

The Roadrunners, who are ranked No. 58 by Golfstat, last played on April 4-5 at the rain-shortened Dallas Athletic Club/SMU Invitational, where they finished in fourth place (307-297—604) in the event won by Baylor. Fabiola Arriaga tied for runner-up honors with a two-over-par 146 (75-71) and the senior was named Conference USA Player of the Week for her performance.
