FARMINGTON — Trey Diehl is already holding his own against NCAA Division I competition on the golf course, posting his fourth straight top-50 outing with New Mexico State University.
The 2019 Piedra Vista boys golf graduate tied for 44th overall out of 84 individual competitors on Tuesday to wrap up the Arizona Intercollegiate in Tucson, Arizona. He shot 220 over three rounds, just seven shots over par.
Diehl shot a 72 on Tuesday, matching his career-best score on the greens.
Diehl previously shot a 72 on two other occasions back in October.
The first came during the Bentwater Intercollegiate in Montgomery, Texas, while the second came during New Mexico State’s home meet, the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate in Las Cruces.
Diehl and the Aggies will be off for the next three weeks. New Mexico State will hit the tees again on Feb. 21 for the Wyoming Desert Classic in Desert, California.

Vasquez is also contributing as a high-percentage scorer off the bench, shooting 51.1 percent from the floor while averaging just 18.7 minutes a game.
