April 2, 2008
GREENVILLE, N.C. - East Carolina's Emelie Lind was named Conference USA Golfer-of-the-Week for the third time this year after finishing in a tie for seventh at the 2008 Mountain View Collegiate in Tucson, Ariz., league officials announced today.
The Kungsangen, Sweden native recorded her fifth top-10 finish and seventh top-20 placement when she finished five strokes out of first place with a four-over par 220 (75-71-74).
In her 35 career tournaments, she has a 76.93 stroke average, which ranks third all-time in school history. Lind has recorded seven top-10 finishes and 15 top-20's in her career.
Lind helped the Pirates (98-21-0), who are nationally ranked 23rd by Golfweek, 26th by Golf World and 29th by Golfstat, to an eighth-place finish in a field of 17 that featured eight teams in the top-50 and all 17 in the top-100.
This is the third weekly honor for Lind this season (Oct. 17/ Mar. 12), third of her career and the seventh time this season that a member of the Lady Pirate Golf Team has been named Golfer-of-the-Week (Abby Bools/ Sept. 26 and Feb. 20; Amber Littman/Oct. 31 and Nov. 8).
The Lady Pirates will be back on the links April 7 when they participate in the 2008 UNCW Lady Seahawk Intercollegiate.
