Coors named SSC Women’s Golfer of the Week

SAINT LEO, Fla. – Saint Leo senior Marie Coors was named Sunshine State Conference Women's Golfer of the Week after her benchmark achievements last week at the Florida Southern Lady Moc Classic.

Coors fired a three-under 69 in Tuesday's third and final round at the Lady Moc Classic, and finished tied atop the individual leaderboard with Seminole State's Tuan-Yu Chiang with a two-under 214 for the tournament.

Coors and Chiang are the first golfers to break par in the 19-year history of the Lady Moc Classic. They also became the first golfers to card rounds in the 60s since the Lady Moc Classic moved to Grasslands Golf & Country Club in 2014.

As a team, Saint Leo finished second overall with a 54-hole score of 898 (+34), after carding a 298 in Tuesday's final round.

This is Coors' second Sunshine State Conference Women's Golfer of the Week award this season; she previously won the accolade on September 26, 2016, after a third-place finish at the UNC Pembroke "Battle at Old South".

For the season, Coors is averaging 71.92 strokes over 13 rounds played in 2016-17. She is currently the number two-ranked player in all of NCAA Division II according to GolfStat, trailing only Dallas Baptist's Ann Parmerter.

Saint Leo women's golf returns to action on Monday, March 6, when it travels to Savannah, Ga., to compete in the Armstrong State Pirate Women's Invitational at the Savannah Quarters Country Club.
