According to a report on the WNMU webpage, Perales won the final match of the tournament over Levi Flores 2-1 after beating his old high school teammate Derek Baeza in the semi-finals. Former Mustang Jarrod Mason was a Perales' first round victim, falling 4-3. Perales won the Deming City Championship with a playoff win over Nick Williams.
WNMU Golf Coach Kent Beatty said, "Buzz was a stud out there Sunday. He hit the ball long and his short game was spot on. He's gonna be a great player for us over the next two or three years," Perales is part of a powerful stable of Mustangs that will be returning next month.
WNMU finished 14th in the NCAA Championship last season and were ranked as high as 7th during the season. Seven players return to the squad with top-five experience, including Perales.
