MACON, Ga. – On the heels of earning co-medalist honors in this week’s Jan Weaver-Murray State Invitational, Lipscomb freshman Samantha Griffith has been named the Atlantic Sun Conference Women’s Golf of the Week as announced by the league on Wednesday.
Competing in her first collegiate event, Griffith fired a three-round 218 to finish tied with Murray State’s Abbi Stamper. The twosome did not hit the course for a playoff due to Stamper’s involvement in a team playoff with the Racers.
An Ooltewah, Tennessee native, Griffith opened the event with a 71 in the opening round to lead all competitors. The newcomer followed that with a 75 in round two before carding a 72 on Tuesday to earn a share of the title.
Griffith is the third Lipscomb women’s golfer in school history to take home the weekly honor from the league.
