Women's Golf Earns Weekly Honors from Golfweek

Feb. 11, 2009


Orlando, Fla. - After opening is spring season with a stellar showing at the Koasati Pines Collegiate Golf Classic, the Texas State women's golf team has been named Golfweek team of the week. Bobcat newcomer Sydney Liles was also named Player of the Week after posting a record-mark at the Coushatta Golf Course.

"I am very excited we came out with a nice performance in our first event of the spring," said head coach Mike Akers. "It is also great to see that Koasati Pines sets up well for us, as it will host the Southland Conference championship in April. We certainly hope to defend our title."

The Bobcats, currently ranked No. 78, surpassed three teams with a 304 final round score to claim the title and tie the second-best tournament team low round set in 2006. The 924 combined finish was two strokes ahead of the competing teams. Texas State newcomer Sydney Liles took the lead on the course, breaking away for a first-place finish with rounds of 74-73-74, and a four-stroke victory.

"I could not be happier with the way Sydney handled herself and the pressure of going into the final round with the lead," said Akers. "This should be a huge boost for her confidence and now she knows she can win. To be honored by Golfweek is an accomplishment for sure."

Liles overall 6-over 222 tournament tally tied the best individual tournament score posted at the Koasati Classic.

Joining Liles on the Texas State lineup card were teammates Trine Mortensen (231), Amy Glazier (235), Adin Stromgren (237) and Caitlin Bliss (244). The Bobcats will return to tournament action Feb. 22 at the Kiawah Island Intercollegiate in South Carolina.

Considering our womens sports considerably out pace our mens maybe we should start giving the women a larger percentage of the budget. Atleast they are providing a much better return on the investment.
