    LAREDO, Texas - The University of Houston golf team returns to action this weekend when it competes at the Border Olympics.

    The Cougars will play 36 holes on Friday with the final 18 holes slated to begin Saturday morning. UH joins a prestigious field at the tournament, including host Texas A&M, Colorado State, Rice, Southeastern Louisiana, North Texas, Arkansas, SMU, Baylor, San Diego State, Lamar, Texas Tech, Texas State, Texas-Arlington, Michigan State, Texas-San Antonio and BYU.

    The two-day tournament will be held on the 7,125-yard, par-72 course at Laredo Country Club in Laredo, Texas.

    UH enters this weekend's tournament after finishing 16th at the Hall of Fame Invitational in Houston on March 19-21.

    At that event, sophomore co-captain Zach Mowbray led the Cougars for the third consecutive tournament. The Mesa, Ariz., native finished the tournament at 2-over-par 218, including a 70 in the second round, to tie for 25th place.

    Mowbray has finished among the Top 25 individual leaders in each of the last three tournaments and now leads the Cougars with a 73.6 scoring average.

    Freshman Ricky Romano is second among the Cougars with a 74.4 average and joins Mowbray and senior co-captain Denton Walker as the only Cougars to play in all seven tournaments to date.

    This weekend's tournament will be the final tune-up for the Cougars before competing at the 2004 Conference USA Championships on April 19-21 in Dade City, Fla.
