MINNEAPOLIS - After an impressive weekend in which she finished as the runner-up at the Hoosier Fall Invitational, Minnesota's Carmen Laguna has been named the Big Ten Women's Golfer of the Week.
The native of Tomares-Sevilla, Spain fired a career best 1-under par 212 (72-73-67) over the weekend at Hickory Stick Golf Club in Greenwood, Ind. The tournament score was the best of Laguna's career as was her final-round score of 67 at the 6,062-yard, par 71 course.
Laguna finished second in a field of 80 over the weekend, tying her best career finish and ending the event just two strokes off the lead.
This is the first career Big Ten honor for Laguna and the first for Minnesota since Banchalee Theinthong on Feb. 6, 2013.
Minnesota closes out the fall season this weekend at the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown.
