MINNEAPOLIS (Gophersports.com) - Emie Peronnin of the University of Minnesota women's golf program has been named the Big Ten Conference Women's Golfer of the Week after a career-best performance at the UCF Classic this week.
The freshman from Fréjus, France carded an even-par score of 216 (76-71-69) to finish tied for 18th at the tournament - her lowest tournament score, score to par and tournament finish as a Gopher. Peronnin also shot a three-under-par 69 in the final round for her lowest round of the season.
The Gophers tied the school 54-hole record with an 869 at the tournament and finished tied for fifth in a stacked field at the 6,349-yard, par 72 Eagle Creek Golf Club. Minnesota ended the three-round event with back-to-back scores of 287 as a team - both rounds tied as the third-lowest rounds in school history.
The honor is Peronnin's first as a Gopher while the freshman is the second Gopher to earn conference weekly honors this season after Carmen Laguna on Oct. 23, 2013.
Peronnin and the Gophers return to action next week at the Central District Invitational in Sarasota, Fla.
