The Texas Southern University Women’s Golf Team won their second-consecutive SWAC Women’s Golf Title at the Refuge Golf Course in Flowood, Mississippi, on Wednesday, Apr. 20.
This win marks the third overall title for the program, the second consecutive title, and the first for head coach Willie Shankle.
“I am extremely proud of the ladies. Even though they had some highs and lows, they came together when it mattered most,” said Shankle.
Texas Southern started off strong and ended up winning the title by 21 strokes.
Sophomore Dili Sitanonth finished first on the leaderboard and was awarded low medalist after posting a total of 228 (75-75-78). Teammate Ashlie Hobbs finished one stroke and placed second following her 2-over final round with a 229 (78-77-74) total.
Junior Lyla Vaughn (86-77-79) and sophomore Miniess Siame (79-79-84) received All SWAC Second Team Honors for their T-10th finish on 242. First-team accolades went to Sitanonh and Hobbs. Second-team recognition went to Vaugh and Siame.
“The season is not over yet but we are looking forward to finishing strong,” Shankle said.
