Women's Golf - Tue, May 30, 2017

Women's golf finished off a solid first season under the direction of first-year head coach Marlene Schulte. The Georgetown College Tigers started the spring season with an eighth-place finish in Florida and worked up to taking sixth in the Mid-South Conference Championship – a three-round competition compared to the usual two-day tournaments during regular season.

Helping with the transition for the new coach was senior Sydney Swingos. The lone graduating player on this youthful team balanced the importance of student-athlete, consistently being one of the top three golfers for the Tigers and maintaining at least a 3.5 grade point average in the classroom.

For the second straight season, her efforts on the academic side received national accolades with the 2017 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athlete honors. In order to receive this award a student-athlete must be a junior by academic standards and completed a full year of academics at the current institution while maintaining at least a 3.5 GPA.

Swingos is one of just 32 Tigers to accomplish this for the 2016-17 year and one of eight to repeat from the 2015-16 year.
