Furman's Chen Honored As SoCon Women's Golfer Of The Week

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Furman senior Alice Chen has been named the Southern Conference Women's Golfer of the Week for all competition from Feb. 10-27.  The selection is made by the league office.

Chen, a native of Princeton, N.J., won individual medalist honors at the Moon Golf Invitational on February 20.  She opened the tournament with a 70 and 71 in the first day of play, then carded a team-high five birdies, including two in her last four holes, for a final-round 70.  She helped the ninth-ranked Paladins to the team victory, as Furman finished 17 strokes ahead of second-place Old Dominion.   

Furman will compete at the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate in Hilton Head, S.C., March 2-4.

Also nominated: Hee Ying Loy (ETSU), Keri Kenkel (UNCG), Monica San Juan (Mercer), Hallianne Hobson (Samford), Alyssa Morahan (Western Carolina) and Lina Settlemeyer (Wofford).
