UTEP sophomore Abbie Anghelescu was named the Conference USA Women’s Golfer of the Week on Wednesday.
Anghelescu crafted one of the most memorable performances of her career as a Miner at the Little Rock/ASU Invitational this week. The sophomore shot a career-low 2-over 218 (69-76-73) en route to a tie for first, then claimed sole victory in a playoff.
Her 69 carded in the first round tied her career low, and her overall score matched the lowest three rounds by a Miner this season. The Canada product lifted UTEP to its first tournament title since October 2016 and contributed to its lowest score (878) of the year.
The weekly nod marks the first of her career.
