College Round-up

Vanderbilt University freshman Jacqui Concolino became the Southeastern Conference's Golfer of the Week last week. Her performance at the Arizona Wildcat Invitational led to these honors. She finished the tournament at 9-under-par. She became the only the second Vanderbilt freshmen to win a tournament. However, her top finish was not enough to bring team honors to the Commodores. Arizona State finished first led by freshman Azahara Munoz.
