CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Coastal Carolina's Lena Schaeffner was named the Big South Golfer of the Week for her team-leading seventh-place finish at the Palmetto Intercollegiate, the conference office announced on Thursday.
The Golfer of the Week honor is Schaeffner's first of the season and her career.
Schaeffner carded a 4-over 220 (75-73-72) and improved each round to post her second top-10 finish of the season and fourth of her career. She ended the tournament with an even-par round of 72, which was her fifth round of par or better in 15 rounds played during the fall season. The sophomore led the Chanticleers with a team-high 10 birdies, which ranked fifth in the tournament field, to go along with her 34 pars.
Schaeffner and the Chanticleers return to the links for the start of their championship season at the Almaden Country Club in San Jose, Calif., for the Juli Inkster Spartan Invitational on March 3-4.
