ETSU senior Sian Evans (matched her career-best round with a 5-under-par 67 and finished in third place at the UCF Challenge to claim the A-Sun Golfer of the Week honor, the league office announced Wednesday.
Her second weekly honor of the season helped the Bucs, ranked No. 51 nationally, finish ahead of No. 24 Tulane, No. 43 SMU, and No. 45 Wisconsin.
Evans’ 54-hole score of 212 (-4) also marks a new personal best for the senior from England. She carded rounds of 72-67-73 and finished only four shots off the lead at the Eagle Creek Golf Club in Orlando, Fla. The third-place finish also represents her best finish of the 2013-14 season.
Evans and the ETSU women’s golfers will be back on the course on March 14 at the 3M Lady Jaguar Intercollegiate tournament in Augusta, Ga.
