Blackman snags second career C-USA Golfer of the Week award
- Updated: March 22, 2017
IRVING, Texas — A second consecutive top-10 finish earned WKU junior Georgina Blackman her second career Conference USA Women’s Golfer of the Week award, as announced by the league office Wednesday.
Blackman, an Essex, England, native, finished sixth Tuesday in the MSU Spring Citrus Challenge, hosted by Morehead State in Sorrento, Fla.
The junior fired a 1-under 71 in the final round to finish the three-day event with a 221 total. She finished just five strokes out of second place and helped the Lady Toppers surge into third on the final day, highlighted by a school record-tying 288 team total in the last round.
Blackman – a two-time All-C-USA selection – has been a model of consistency for WKU this season.
This week’s result was her eighth top-25 finish in nine outings, as well as her fourth top-10 result. She currently carries a season stroke average of 74.7.
Blackman previously won C-USA Golfer of the Week honors once during her freshman season.
This is the fourth C-USA Golfer of the Week award for the Lady Toppers this season. Freshman Mary Joiner won twice in the fall following a pair of victories, and junior Katie Story also earned the nod once.
WKU returns to action at Murray State’s Jan Weaver Invitational on April 7-8 at Miller Memorial Golf Course in Murray, Ky.
