Makena Thomas named LSC Women's Golfer of the Week - LINK
RICHARDSON – Texas A&M University-Commerce women's golfer Makena Thomas has been named the Lone Star Conference Women's Golfer of the Week. The award was announced by the conference on Thursday.
Thomas– a sophomore from San Antonio– shot a career-best round of 1-over par 73 on Tuesday with three birdies to help the Lions place fourth at the DBU Women's Classic. She finished in a tie for 11th place on the individual leaderboard with a 10-over 226 (79-74-73). Thomas' 73 Tuesday is the lowest round by a Lion this season, and her 226 three-round total was the second-best 54-hole score in school history. Her second round score of 74 combined with her third round score of 73 set a career best for Thomas over 36 holes. With her performance, the Lions were able to finish as the lowest scoring LSC team in the tournament, edging Midwestern State by two strokes.
Thomas and the Lions have two top-4 finishes so far this season. The women's team will finish their fall season at the Henderson State/GIC Invitational on Oct. 23-24 at the Hot Springs Country Club Park Course in Hot Springs, Ark.
